Did you know that the Vault-Tec/RobCo partnership is considered the most successful joint venture in the history of American industry?Vault 101 PA System

RobCo IndustriesTM was a multibillion-dollar robotics and software corporation founded by industrialist and technologist Robert House.[1][2]


Founded on June 25, 2042, House's company developed a wide range of robotic products including the eyebot, protectron, and sentry bot[1] as well as the Stealth Boy Model 3001 Personal Stealth Device.[3][4] RobCo invested in exhibits for the public, such as the joint RobCo/General Atomics exposition at the Museum of Technology in Washington, D.C.[5]

RobCo acquired REPCONN Aerospace after a year of buying shares from 2075 to 2076, despite the long-time CEO's efforts to stop the acquisition.[6][7][8][9] House utilized the newly acquired company for a weapons research program for Colonel Moretti of the US military, repurposing REPCONN's proprietary plasma rocket propulsion system.[10][11] H&H Tools factory, part of the inheritance Anthony House had stolen from his brother Robert, was acquired by way of RobCo aggressive trading practices.[12]







RobCo Industries was first mentioned in the first Fallout as the developer of the Pip-Boy. The company's history and products have been expanded upon in subsequent Fallout games.

  6. The Courier: "REPCONN's history."
    Tour guide: "REPCONN's illustrious history began way back in 2054, shortly after the famous Delta XI rocket was completed and launched. REPCONN's initial focus was on the development of fuel to be used in orbital propulsion in response to the energy crisis of 2052. Sad times, indeed. The company really took off when RobCo purchased REPCONN in late 2076 to develop unmanned rockets to explore the solar system."

  7. The Courier: "Tell me about RobCo."
    Tour guide: "RobCo industries purchased REPCONN in 2075 to assist with some of RobCo's military projects, as well as developing unmanned space exploration. The relationship between RobCo and REPCONN is mutually beneficial, and we hope that both companies bolster each other well into the next century."
