Understanding What it Means to Be Manufacturing Ready

As a turnkey manufacturer, Romar looks after every stage from design for manufacture through to logistics and distribution. While we lead in innovative and commercially robust manufacturing solutions, we are not product designers. We come on board when a project is manufacturing ready. Here’s what that means.

Manufacturing in Australia for Leading, Local Solutions

As a leading Australian manufacturer for over 50 years, Romar is acutely aware of the challenges local manufacturers face. A small domestic market and a perception of cheaper manufacturing in nations including Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and China, has traditionally driven much manufacturing offshore. With exciting developments in local sectors such as aerospace and advanced manufacturing, that may be about to change.
