Romer has been established for more than 20 years. From its production facilities in Poland, the company exports its products to over 26 countries. Riley Surface World is one of the world’s leading resellers of new and used surface finishing plant and machinery. The company has been trading since 1966 and operates from 5000 square metre premises in Aldridge, West Midlands, UK. Riley selected Romer ovens to become part of its new equipment portfolio after visiting the factory and doing an extensive audit of the products’ specifications, performance and manufacturing standards. The Romer product range includes modular sizes with maximum operating temperatures up to 300°C, electric, gas or oil-powered options, forced air or natural convection, stainless steel internal cladding and HMI touch screens with ThPID controls that allow the operator to record and download extensive data about process and production cycles. Since their introduction into the UK in 2015, Romer ovens from Riley Surface World have been specified by many global companies in the aerospace, energy and general engineering sectors. This includes names such as GE Renewable Energy, who are using a Romer oven as part of the curing process for wind turbines at their manufacturing facility in the North East of England. 66 Other recent examples include international aerospace companies AEM Ametek, Avia Technique and Teledyne CML as well as construction materials giant Saint Gobain and Irish engineering group Clarke Rewinds. Commenting on the partnership with Romer, managing director Michael Riley said: ‘Romer has been an excellent addition to our new product offering. The build quality of the ovens is first class, they incorporate smart technology and they are competitively priced. Our partnership agreement ensures we always have ovens in stock for immediate delivery when the requirement is urgent, and customers are welcome to view the products in our well-equipped showroom anytime by appointment.’
