ABOUT THE ROMMELAG GROUP

We - the ROMMELAG Group of Companies – regard ourselves as an amalgamation of individual and legally autonomous companies. We offer our products and services under the umbrella brand ROMMELAG. Our companies are managed independently and decentralized.

Rommelag is the inventor of blow-fill-seal technology (BFS) and the global market leader in the aseptic filling of liquids and semisolids with its bottelpack machines. Our machines are primarily used in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries. Together with our customers, we develop innovative packaging solutions tailored precisely to the specific packaging task in hand.

It all began with sheet extrusion in 1952. And to this day, more than 60 years down the line, Rommelag FLEX continues to offer first-class quality and vast expertise that you can benefit from.

We built the first prototype bottelpack machine in 1962. Since then, we have continued to gather and hone our expertise in packaging solutions made of plastic, and also come up with special applications and develop specific packaging solutions. We are delighted to say we now have customers in over 80 countries around the world and more than 2,000 dedicated employees.
