Romanik S.A.


In the 80’s of last century, between the Eastern Bloc countries the trade in Poland was an exception in the positive treatment by the Communist authorities. Therefore, among the guild associated and the crafts cooperative, the Utility Company “Jan Romanik” after its foundation in 1984 was able with consent to manage its production activities. Still, it was a production that involved collaboration with public entities. The political changes in 1989 released positive phenomena of Economic Freedom. Until this moment, Polish crafts had limited access to materials, raw materials, markets, and the discrimination of the craftsmanship by state enterprises was widespread in all areas of activity. With the fall of the Berlin Wall the vast majority of crafts companies began manufacturing. Many entrepreneurs with the same origin are today prosperous economic units. At that time the metalwork plant Jan Romanik had a large-scale production and distribution of tools. In 1984 the company was renamed by TECHMŁOT.

Due to strong domestic demand and exports in the second half of the 90, the company strengthens its position in the market by purchasing the Farming Tools Factory in the region of Końskie, an enterprise located in Krasna, near Kielce, as well as a plant in Przedbórz in the province of Łódź. A very important link in the development of the range of products was also a factory of handles for tools, acquired in 2003 in Miastko, Pomerania. However, due to its different production is excluded from the group TECHMŁOT and since 2004 remains independent with a particular logo, “INTER-WOOD”, but it is 100% financially and strategically linked to the company TECHMŁOT, now ROMANIK S.A. From 2000 to 2010 is a period of intense investment, the development of the range of products and the growth of the markets is stable, but the technological progress is continuous. At the turn of 2007/2008 there is a change of the name of the company, from TECHMŁOT to ROMANIK S.A. There is also a change of legal form, so from the single owner company, natural person to legal person, a corporation. The decision to change the legal form was necessary for obvious reasons, but the change of name was not accidental.

Depending on the time a company was, different preferences  served the companies, expressed also in the logo. In 1989, the change of name from Metalwork Plant Jan Romanik to TECHMŁOT was dictated by the fact that in the first half of 90’s most producers went bankrupt. Even so, still ran the myth of poor production from the craftsmanship. At the same time was still operating the traditional trade of the State, which accepted the new name TECHMŁOT, still as a public enterprise. Many interesting contacts from that period remain still today. Over time, the mass privatization of most companies also changed consumer’s attitudes towards companies with the name in the logo. Conceived from years of customer and user review about the products of the company ROMANIK S.A., it’s for us our continuous commitment to the growing number of customers, not only in Europe.

In 2010 is being used a modern installation built in 2008/2009 in Trzeciewiec, near Bydgoszcz. The facility of Trzeciewiec is one of the four plants in Poland working for the group ROMANIK S.A. The production program of the plants depends on the circumstances of each one, tradition, experience, technical skills, technology, professional ability and access to raw materials. It strictly constitutes a dependant division of roles from the experience developed through years of expertise. It is an effect of involvement of the group of workers, starting from the board of directors until the lowest level of workers, which constitute the continuation of the history of ROMANIK S.A.
