Founded 1922 by Dr. Ing. Rohrbach to continue construction
and development of all-metal aircraft designed
by him when working previously with the Zeppelin company.
Associated company, Rohrbach-Metall-Aeroplane
Co A/S, formed in Copenhagen to avoid
Ro VIII "Roland"
imposed on construction in Germany. Built ten Ro-ll seaplanes
for Japanese Navy and Ro-IIIA for Turkey, followed
by Rodra twin-engine flying-boat and Rofix single-seat
fighter. Copenhagen plant closed in late 1920s when
restrictions on German manufacture were lifted. German
factory continued flying-boat and landplane construction,
including Roland three-engined 10-passenger
monoplane. In April 1934 Weser Flugzeugbau GmbH
took over the company and Dr. Rohrbach became technical
director of Weser.
