The history of the Rösler company and brand goes back to the second half of the 19th century and begins with the large Rösler family of north Bohemia and Saxony.

The year 1878 is considered the official date when the Rösler factory was founded by Gustav Rösler. Ludwik Gatter bought the company from his sister Helena Rösler in 1900 and successfully presented his instruments to the international markets.
