    Where it Started…

    IKEA’s Dutch distribution centre at Oosterhout had a high incidence of forklift collision damage to their pallet racking, which not only meant frequent, but also high replacement costs. IKEA understood the need to reduce the cost of their pallet racking replacements, and asked Hans Slavenburg, a structural engineer based in the Netherlands, to help provide a solution. This led to the invention of a hydraulic tool and repair procedure that fits a die to the damaged upright, and within minutes, through controlled pressure, can restore the racking column to its original Specification.

    From There We Grew to a Global Reach

    While this solution was initially developed for IKEA, we could see the value that the patented ROS system could have on a variety of facilities requiring racking repairs. Thus, we used the system to expand our reach from Holland to incorporate Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, the USA, and South Africa. Locally ROS international SA has grown significantly since its humble beginnings in 2010 with the below representing some of the major milestones:
