A Company History

Our story begins in 1929, when the Rohr Company Founder Adam Rohr made the decision to mine the sand and gravel below his farm to better support his growing family.

During this period, sand and gravel was brought up with shovels and loaded into horse carts. The daily output was less than a hundredth of what it is today.

By 1938 the land-based bucketladder had been developed. This helped to streamline production and extend the useful life of the property. Emil Rohr became active in the family business in the early 40's and remained heavily involved until he passed the operations on to his son Wolfgang in 1968.

In the mid 70's, Rohr developed the AQUAMATOR. This patented innovation has found an application in hundreds of aggregate plants around the world for washing gravel and cleaning sand. This was Rohr's first step into the machinery business which has grown substantially since those early beginnings. The early 80's saw the inclusion of the fourth generation, Axel and Jochen Rohr. This new leadership has lead to many innovations and international growth. In 2011 Rohr was purchased by Ellicott Dredge Enterprises LLC, as part of EDE’s continued expansion to offer its worldwide customers multiple dredging options for their mining requirements. In 2012 Rohr acquired the principle business assets of IDRECO GBMH, now Idreco BV, in the Netherlands. Idreco is a leader in deep digging electrical suction and cutter suction dredges and pumps primarily for the sand and gravel industry, and mining industry, as well as the dam restoration sector. Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems will offer our customers multiple dredging options to meet their mining requirements.

Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems offers a wide variety of products and services for the aggregate and mining industries. Our goal is to provide the sand and gravel producer with products thoroughly engineered and tested in our own mining operations, to insure high availability, constant output and longevity.

We engineer and assemble our dredges at our facilities in the U.S. and Europe using leading component suppliers like Siemens, Allen Bradley, and GE. All Rohr equipment utilizes off the shelf components to assure ease of service and high availability.

To assure consistent quality in our components, we have combined administration, electrical engineering and fabrication into one location in New Richmond, Wisconsin. This facility is well stocked with spare parts. This also allows us to pre-assemble all key components before shipping to keep field fabrication to a minimum.

Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems has installed more than 400 Dredge Systems worldwide. We look forward to discussing your dredging needs in detail.
