1969 - 1979
On April first in 1969, Peter Strack, along with his son-in-law Georg Rombach, founded the company “”Peter Strack”“. At that time, they manufactured stamped parts in the basement of their home in Ruppichteroth, using a used 35to press. Later, in the adjoining garage, they also produced decorative grilles, which ensured the company’s initial success.
From 1970 onwards, they patented special hardware systems for furniture and shop fitting. The development of these systems brought the breakthrough and a steadily growing success in the following years. The location had to be changed several times in order to have more space.
The development of a so-called single-stand for coffee tables – by using a crank handle the table could be converted into a dining table - developed into a product in demand, so that the company went into series production.
1980 - 2003
The company continued to grow and soon the premises became too small again, so that the principal office was moved to Winterscheid.
Until today, the complete range of the industrial metal processing is operated and further developed here, on a hall area of approx. 2000 square meters.
In this time, Peter Strack handed over the management of the company to his son-in-law Georg Rombach. After the handover, the company focused on the production of locking systems, especially for roof boxes for automobiles. This led to a further growth of the customer base. In 1990, under the leadership of Georg Rombach, the legal form was changed to a Ltd (limited liability company) and the company was renamed into “Rombach Stanztechnik GmbH”.
2004 - 2012
In 2004, Peter Rombach, son of Georg Rombach and grandson of the founder, was brought on board as managing Director.
In 2007, Peter Rombach took over the company. Thanks to his professional experience in well-known management consultings, he was now able to apply his skills in the family business, optimizing business processes and improving manufacturing processes.
He focused on designing internal structures and expanding the field of activity and service. In 2008, he acquired the manufacturing plant of a former customer from the advertising technology sector and in 2012, the client company “Peter Kneip”. In the same year, all companies were merged into “Rombach GmbH”.
2013 - today
In the course of time, the company opened further trades and a large network of specialized partners. Hereby the range of services could be greatly expanded and the manufacturing capabilities could be developed.
Furthermore, the company positioned itself internationally. Today, the company can draw on and involve producers from Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, Southeastern Europe and the Far East. Depending on the requirements, cost budget and necessary “proximity of logistics”, a tailor-made concept is developed and lived.
With a total of 25 employees, we now supply more than 2000 items to customers from nearly 20 different industries.
