The team

The Rolco team consists of about twenty passionate people. The team is specialised in refurbishment, retrofits, upgrades and new customized machinery/modules for the rolled tissue and hygienic paper converting industry.

Where it all started

The roots of Rolco Europe B.V. lie within Edet (SCA) in Tilburg before 1996, where John van Bladel was a project engineer in the technical team looking after the converting machinery. In 1996 John van Bladel decided to make the leap of faith and founded Rolco Europe with a partner. In the first year Rolco Europe worked mainly for SCA in Tilburg but with several successful projects also other SCA subsidiaries (now Essity) started asking for the Rolco services.
This way Rolco expanded it's reach and started supplying the leading international converting companies. 

In 2006 Rolco moved to Nieuwkuijk with a bigger workshop and offices. In the new premises it is possible to realise complete converting lines for the customer. Since then the company realises every year about two or three large projects.
