ROMEX® 30th anniversary

Image

The 17th October 1989 was the cornerstone of an until now worldwide successful family business. It was in this year 1989, that Rolf Meurer was sitting in a hotel in Budapest and watched on TV for 2 hours as the East Germans "went for a walk" across the Hungarian border to Austria. Everything became clear to him. Communist Socialism was on the brink of collapse. Today or tomorrow! He saw THE chance of doing lucrative business with Eastern Europe. And that is what happened. He ended his successful career as Managing Director of GftK, bought out the export sector for 200.000 DM and formed his own company.

The 17th October 1989 was the cornerstone of an until now worldwide successful family business. It was in this year 1989, that Rolf Meurer was sitting in a hotel in Budapest and watched on TV for 2 hours as the East Germans "went for a walk" across the Hungarian border to Austria. Everything became clear to him. Communist Socialism was on the brink of collapse. Today or tomorrow! He saw THE chance of doing lucrative business with Eastern Europe. And that is what happened. He ended his successful career as Managing Director of GftK, bought out the export sector for 200.000 DM and formed his own company.

The company name ROMEX, derived from the words - Rolf Meurer Export – today stands for a worldwide successful brand in the sector modern synthetic resin building materials. Thus over the last 30 years, ROMEX® formed itself into a specialist supplier for industrial floor coatings and paving joint mortars of international significance. Today we count as one of the manufacturers with the broadest range of products in this specialised sector.

Rolf Meurer was the first one to recognise the possibility of using synthetic resin binding agents for easy to do paving stone jointing, suitable for use by both experts and beginners, and turned that realisation into success with topnotch products, quality and corresponding customer service.

Within the sector of construction project realisation, we became specialists in the manufacture of industrial floor coatings made of epoxy resin (ER) and polyurethane (PU) for large scale industrial projects. Working together with our laying company partners, we offer our clients tailored advice and supervised application of products, ensuring a high degree of security and quality assurance. This also applies to projects involving our bedding and jointing systems for paved stone and slab surfaces.

Surface protection systems by ROMEX®

Besides the over many years proven OS 8 System by ROMEX®, as of immediately we now also offer OS 11a, OS 11b and OS 4 surface protection systems for carparks and underground carparks.

Floor slabs and ground touching surfaces, especially in the lower decks of carparks, are exposed to much more extreme loads such as damp and winter salt. The usual standard solution for this is the rigid, mechanically loadbearing OS 8 System.

On open air decks, as well as the heavy mechanical load exposure, they also need to resist extreme thermal loads in the summer and winter. Optimum protection is provided by the elastic OS…

Besides the over many years proven OS 8 System by ROMEX®, as of immediately we now also offer OS 11a, OS 11b and OS 4 surface protection systems for carparks and underground carparks.

Floor slabs and ground touching surfaces, especially in the lower decks of carparks, are exposed to much more extreme loads such as damp and winter salt. The usual standard solution for this is the rigid, mechanically loadbearing OS 8 System.

On open air decks, as well as the heavy mechanical load exposure, they also need to resist extreme thermal loads in the summer and winter. Optimum protection is provided by the elastic OS 11a System made of primer, swimming layer, abrasion layer and UV resistant top sealant.

Indoor parking decks are often subjected to more frequent usage and for this we recommend the elastic, abrasion resistant surface protection system OS 11b

All surfaces in carparks, not walked or driven on, can be protected using the surface protection system OS 4.

All ROMEX® systems are suitable for use in newbuilds or for repairs on existing surfaces.

We look forward to your projects. Speak to our specialists. We are happy to advise you.

ROMEX® at the GaLaBau exhibition

From the 12th to the 15th September 2018 the 23rd GaLaBau exhibition in Nürnberg opened it’s gates. As usual, ROMEX® was present with a stand in Nürnberg as in previous years. And in what a way! With a new exhibition stand concept and exciting subjects, we communicated the new brand positioning of the flagship brand ROMPOX®.

This stands for reliable system solutions. This thought was visualised using a compass, which was to be found on our stand as a brand logo and as part of the stand design – as reliable as a compass.

Without a doubt this year’s ROMEX® highlight was the SYSTEM-GUARANTEE.

Without a doubt this year’s ROMEX® highlight was the SYSTEM-GUARANTEE.

ROMEX® is the first and only manufacturer in the sector paving stone and slab construction, that offers it’s customers such a guarantee. ROMEX® means security, especially for trade companies that nowadays give their customers a five year guarantee for their construction services, in accordance with BGB.

The GaLaBau is one of the worldwide leading exhibitions for garden and landscape construction. This year 1 253 companies were present across 14 exhibition halls. The record number of over 70 000 trade visitors says a lot about how relevant this trade fair is.
