We engineer a better world - we deliver what our customers need, when they need it, to succeed in their chosen areas. Our focus is on developing and delivering products and services that are technically superior, inherently sustainable and deliver measurable benefits.

We ensure innovation is at the heart of everything we do - our company is based on smart people thinking differently. It’s our job to consistently push forward the technical and scientific boundaries of what is possible. Based on our track record, we know that we can apply our intellect, experience and analytical skills to solve a multitude of customer problems and engineering issues. We also know that, sometimes, clarity and simplicity are far more valuable than needless complexity.

We strive to continuously improve - we take pride in our work and we never stand still. We believe that there is always a better way of doing things and we are committed to improve and progress - in our products, our processes and our people. We also understand the importance of working meticulously and of paying extraordinary attention to detail - the only way to achieve true quality and excellence.

We deliver value and build loyalty through longterm partnerships - we treat our customers as valued business partners, with shared interests and goals. We work alongside the world’s leading engineers, technology providers, manufacturers, government agencies, research teams and academic institutions.

Our quality management commitment is designed to ensure that all Romax products and services are quality assured and delivered in line with industry best practice.

Our CEO has Board-level responsibility for quality and QA issues across the organisation. Our approach includes regular reviews and updates of quality documentation and procedures to reflect changing circumstances, customer requirements and the latest working practices.
