History

Our history goes back to 1914. In 1985, we became ROFI and started the journey to who and what we are today.

In the mid 1980’s, we introduced the first tents, which today form a wide product range from traditional family tents to large tents for hospitals, accommodation and many other purposes. Today we do tents based on metallic frames as well as inflating technology for rapid deployment. We have 35 years of practice in customizing our tents to fit the needs of the people living and working under difficult conditions, optimizing the work efficiency, comfort and safety. We transform our own and the customer’s experiences in combination with textile know-how to the development of new and improved products and solutions.  

In the late 1980’s we developed the first edition of deminer vests, body armour and aprons. All the time we cooperate with some of the world’s leading demining organizations, and are privileged in being a preferred supplier and partner of protection solutions to UN agencies, NGOs and defence customers. 

Throughout the past 35 years we have deployed our products in more than 60 countries worldwide, and are proud to give our contribution in protecting people working and living under demanding conditions. This is why we have chosen “Protecting People” as our vision.
