Originally a family owned and operated business, the Rohr family sold ROSTA AG and its subsidiaries to the Polygena AG Group in 1996. The Polygena AG Group is a diverse holding company based in Altstatten Switzerland and owns five other Swiss based machine component manufacturing companies.

ROSTA has a diverse network of distributors across Canada to meet the needs of the end user markets, and a dedicated sales team to support the distribution & OEM customers directly.
All began in the mid-forties 1944, when Mr. Rohr in the village of Staufen (RoSta) was commissioned to develop a simple and economic solution to support axles of truck trailers.
The three main functions, to support, to dampen and to suspend lead to the ROSTA rubber spring element.
