Quality is our tradition. Milestones of a successful family business
Between 1970 and 1980 there was a stormy development of the epoxy resin and polyurethane products in Germany with more than 300 manufacturers in the market for bridge coatings and industrial floors. The ROMEX® company founder, Rolf Meurer, was responsible for these products as head of a production and sales company and played a key role in the development.

Sales of paving joint mortar developed rapidly during this time. Thanks to its own production facility, ROMEX® PFM GmbH is now one of the market leaders.
From dealer to manufacturer. ROMEX® bought a production site in Meckenheim and started manufacturing its own products. Including the ready to use and pre-mixed 1-component paving joint mortar ROMPOX® - EASY, which became a sales hit.
Introduction of ROMPOX® - D2000 joint mortar for the public sector. Under the slogan "The modern paving joint mortar", this system developed into a product for the construction and renovation of paved stone surfaces in public areas.
Due to sustained success and constant growth, the available capacities are no longer sufficient. The ROMEX® production site is expanded and extended by a logistics center. Growth, particularly for the market for paving joint mortars, causes the need for an expansion of the sales team. ROMEX® buys a farm in Euskirchen. This will be converted into a representative distribution center with a sample garden and training rooms.
ROMEX® introduces the innovative slip safety system for large format slabs and pavers under the brand name ISATec®. With this new technology, thrust and shear forces can be absorbed within inner city areas subjected to heavy loads, such as city squares, pedestrian zones or other representative design areas, in order to prevent damage to the superstructure.
Coworkers are the company’s most important capital
