Ernst Roeser founded our company based on an innovation in 1953: The application of silkscreen decoration on glass. The procedure had been known for 2000 years and could now be deployed as direct print on glass and later plastics due to technological advancements. Since then ROESER stayed true to its innovative roots and has perfected many technologies for the decoration of glass, plastics and aluminium through the years.
