It is a first for Rompa: in 2018, we will begin the construction of our first production site in Germany. The site will be located directly next to the factory of our customer Britax Römer. With this new site, we emphasise our intention to develop a sustainable and long-term partnership for at least ten years. We expect the first plastic components for car and bicycle seats to roll out of the production site by 2018.
We signed our contract with Britax Römer in November of 2017. “Next, we purchased the land in December,” says Patrick Gerard, Rompa’s CEO. “By next year, we will have built a 4,500 m2 production site equipped with five large machines with a clamping force of 1,200 tons. We will initially employ circa twenty to twenty-five people there.”
