HISTORY

roebbelen-building-trades

Leading Innovation with Historical Excellence

Roebbelen was founded in 1959 by Hans Roebbelen in Sacramento, California. The Roebbelen logo was chosen as a symbol of 700 years of history; bringing together old-world skill with cutting-edge technology to create innovative results and exceptional craftsmanship.

When trade guilds were thriving in Central Europe during the Middle Ages, three tools symbolized the mastery, knowledge, and craftsmanship of the building trades: the compass, the trowel, and the broadax.

In 1870 these three emblems were consolidated to create the logo for the Staatsbauschule Buxtehude School of Architecture and Structural Engineering in Germany.

As a distinguished graduate of the school, Hans Roebbelen was one of two students granted the customary privilege of adopting the university’s logo as his own.
