Roca History
Compañía Roca Radiadores, S.A. was founded in 1917 by the Roca brothers and initiated its operations manufacturing cast-iron radiators. The fact that the company rapidly dominated this market along with the will to embark on expansion programs served as the impetus to widen the product range and dedicate time to new product research.

Roca stormed the bathroom decoration market in 1925 with the introduction of the first cast-iron baths, and in 1936 with the launch of sanitaryware fixtures. Understandably, Roca possessed the businessman’s instinct to diversify products, but always within the framework of comfort products, and this lead Roca to enter the air conditioning market in 1963.

In 1980 the production of wall and floor ceramic tiles was initiated, which rounded off the full range of bathroom products. These range from the most sophisticated water massage systems to the simplest of accessories, shower trays, shower enclosures and shower screens, all types of taps and mixers, bathroom furniture, mirrors, wall lights, and accessories. Of course, not forgetting the wall and floor ceramic tiles in all their different types, designs and formats.

In 1998, a new Ceramic Plant started production close to Castellón, considered the most advanced in the ceramic tile sector.

In 1999, Roca opened a new warehouse in Spain. This constituted the first fully automatic warehouse in the ceramic industry.

Roca’s history stretches across three quarters of a century and is now synonymous with guaranteed performance and trust. With factories and subsidiaries spread across various continents, Roca has proved to be one of the most ambitious world-wide business projects.
