Roura Material Handling, Inc. (formerly known as Roura Iron Works) was founded in Detroit, Michigan by Joseph Roura in 1915. After studying engineering at Carnegie Technical Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and working for Detroit Edison for a brief period, Mr. Roura started the company as a structural steel business.In its early days, Roura fabricated and erected the steel in many buildings, landmarks, and railroad bridges in the Detroit area. In the late 1920's and 1930's Roura began fabricating steel boxes and similar products to supplement their structural steel work. Capitalizing on their design and engineering expertise, Roura conceived and developed the Self Dumping Hopper.By the late 1940's Roura had phased out of the structural steel business. During World War II Roura provided containers and self dumping hoppers for several defense projects. From that point on Roura's primary product have been self dumping hoppers and related products for the material handling industry. The demand for self dumping hoppers increased as the country's manufacturing sector expanded and recognized the productivity advantages and value of Roura's products.In 1973, Roura established a second manufacturing facility in Holly Springs, Mississippi to serve the southern portion of the United States. In 1991, the Detroit location moved to the current manufacturing facility in Clinton Township, Michigan to serve the northern portion of the United States.Roura's workforce focuses on maintaining the company's position as the country's leading value producer of self dumping hoppers and related custom fabricated products for the material handling industry. Roura self dumping hoppers are available in over 50 standard models and sizes. Roura also offers many specialty products and will design custom products to meet unique customer requirements.
