ROMAG Pipes and Machines of Switzerland, a worldwide-known name in CSO markets, has changed its name. We discontinued the manufacture spiral-welded pipes made of steel as early as 1999 and restricted ourselves to dealing with pipes of special areas. In 2009, we also gave up dealing in steel and PE pipes.
Since then, the company has been focusing on the bottom-line expertise, which consists of sophisticated components made of stainless steel and technologies for drinking water supply and treatment of meteoric water. These are market segments in which we have been operating successfully for over 30 years now.
It is only logical to replace the suffix ‘pipes and machines’ by a new designation that better corresponds to our present-day business activities.
Kurt M. Gloor, chairman and CEO said: “We have adapted our identity accordingly with the new name ROMAG aquacare: ‘aquacare’ refers precisely to what we do today. We deal with infrastructure focusing on water, our most valuable resource. To put it more precisely, we deal with the facilities along the water-cycle, from tapping springs to the receiving body of water.
The fact that drinking water requires well chambers, reservoir facilities as well as conditioning and distribution systems is clear. However, decontamination systems are also required in many locations for the sudden rush of rainwater in the sewage system. CSO structures with screens, regulators, valves and control systems are needed to prevent rainwater contaminated with effluent from the combined sewage system flowing off untreated into the nearest receiving water.
Rainwater from heavily used sections of road is contaminated in many locations so that it needs to be cleaned in special systems before being discharged into natural bodies of water.
ROMAG’s name-change will mean no changes for you, our customer or associate. We would simply request that you change our company name in your address file.
ROMAG aquacare is not a newly set-up company. The company’s legal status, share holders, managing board and workforce, bank accounts and insurance companies, etc. will not change. We look forward to continued good co-operation with all our customers and partners.
