|The Company - Who We Are|
Founded by Américo Emílio Romi in 1930 as an automobile repair shop in Santa Bárbara d’Oeste, São Paulo, Brazil, Indústrias Romi S.A. has grown to become a global leader in Machine Tools, Plastic Processing Machines and Rough or Machined Castings. Its products and services are marketed domestically and exported to five continents for industries such as automobile and automotive components manufacturing, consumer goods, agricultural machinery and implements, and industrial machinery and equipment. Our brand name is synonymous with quality, technology and reliable products and services.
We manufacture Machine Tools (metal cutting machines and metal removal equipment such as CNC Lathes, Conventional Engine Lathes, and Machining Centers); Plastic Processing Machines (Plastic Injection Molding Machines and Blow machines) and Rough or machined grey, ductile and vermicular castings.
Romi invests about 4% of its annual net earnings into developing new products and technologies. It holds over 60 patents and has a further 30 patents pending in Brazil and overseas. In addition to developing its proprietary technologies, Romi supplements its technological strength through cooperation agreements with industry leaders like Emag Maschinenfabrik GmbH (Germany), Kira Corporation (Japan) and Colombo Filippetti Torino SRL (Italy).
The Indústrias Romi S.A. plant is located in Santa Bárbara d’Oeste, about 130 km from São Paulo city. It comprises over 140,000 m² of built area and nine manufacturing facilities, whose advanced, integrated CAD/CAM systems provide flexibility and high performance throughout the manufacturing process.
Our products are marketed directly to domestic customers through more than 30 branches and sales offices nationwide. This distribution system allows Romi to deliver a wide range of before and after-sales engineering services, technical assistance and replacement parts. Romi has been active internationally since 1944, and today its products are marketed through a worldwide distribution network. The Company also has sales and services subsidiaries in the U.S.A. and Germany to grow Romi’s positions in these important markets.
Romi’s Quality Management System has been certified since 1994, and we earned an ISO 9001 (2000) certification from ABS Quality Evaluations for:
• the design, development, production, sales and services related to machine tools, processing plastic machines and
• the manufacture and sales of castings, machined parts and machining services.
Romi’s products and services also meet a wide range of stringent international technical quality and safety standards, including an EC certification for the European Common Market.
Integrated Corporate Management System
As a global company providing products and services to countries and markets worldwide, each of Romi’s business units are linked by an integrated corporate management system.
Combining environmental responsibility with a commitment to sustained growth, Romi has long invested in more efficient infrastructure and technologies to prevent pollution in every aspect of its activities. Thanks to these ongoing efforts, on August 12, 2005 Romi became ISO 14001 certified and on June 2008 Romi received the recertification.
Romi constantly invests in the development of its people, who are the fundamental element of the Company’s results and growth. Romi also provides benefits for the health and welfare of its employees and their families.
To underline the Company’s position that its people are its most valuable asset, in 1957 founder Américo Emilio Romi and his wife Olimpia Gelli Romi created a foundation to help provide healthcare, education and recreation benefits to staff members and their dependents. More recently, this foundation’s efforts have been increasingly directed toward educational and cultural activities which are available free of charge to the community.
