Alroko - About Us

Alroko GmbH & Co KG, Germany, with its subsidiary Alroko Inc. in the US, serves as the sole sales representative for many major producers of industrial raw materials and machine manufacturers across the globe. We take pride in being a reliable partner for all our customers. Our sales philosophy is to supply technically advanced products, always sourced from well-established manufacturing partners. We focus on offering high-quality industrial raw materials, particularly minerals and specialty chemicals, for a wide range of industrial applications.

Further, we supply various machines and equipment for producing and testing friction materials - but also highly specialized, non-standard machines for several other applications.

More than three decades of expertise in the industries we serve and the manufacture of nearly all products according to ISO standards provide our customers with the supply security they need to produce exceptional products. Additionally, we are readily available to provide comprehensive technical support - whenever it is needed.
