Röwer und Rüb


The history of Röwer & Rüb

The history of the Röwer & Rüb GmbH and our horse stalls, outdoor stables, horse walkers, round arenas and more, goes back to a forge once founded by Mr. Röwer. After becoming one of the biggest plough factories, Mr. Rüb acquired the company and they started specializing in horse barn equipment and horse stalls.

The company and its product portfolio kept growing and today Röwer & Rüb is one of the best known global brands for horse stalls, horse walkers and other horse facility equipment.

  • 1928

    Röwer launches its first trailer plough for tractors. The company meanwhile holds more than 100 patents worldwide.
