RUBI began it’s life in Spain in 1951, when the Boada brothers invented a manual tile cutter for hydraulic mosaic work. This new tool proved extremely popular and even won a diploma of honour and the gold medal at the first national exhibition of inventions, held in Barcelona in 1953. The tool was christened ‘RUBI’ and was the first in a long line of tiling and construction tools. RUBI now designs, manufactures and distributes these tools from their headquarters in Spain, which also includes a showroom, museum and an area exclusively dedicated to training.
