The birth of composites heralded a new age in manufacturing, and long fiber injection molding — known as LFI — is taking composites to the next level in applications requiring reduction in mass and weight, such as in transportation, agriculture, and heavy trucks. LFI produces sought-after high-performing parts with superior stiffness and strength, and such reductions mean increased fuel economy and decreased emissions.
Long fiber composites are continuing to grow in popularity, with industry research projecting a $4.26 Billion market by 2021. Romeo RIM is investing in tools, technology, personnel, and lean manufacturing techniques to keep up with current demand and prepare for industry growth and developments in other composite technologies.
Our world-class team of 150 employees is expanding, with a culture defined by servant leadership. We focus on customer value, making Romeo RIM a premier destination for top talent. We’re continuing to update two production buildings with over 173,000 square feet of manufacturing space. This allows cutting-edge prototyping, molding, and painting technology featuring one-minute cycle times, machine redundancy for continuous production, and a dozen Class-A color options for prime and top coat paint.
Romeo RIM also invests regularly in upgrades to our offices, quality and engineering areas to create a better, more productive work environment. We’re extremely proud and excited about our new customer experience center where individuals can get a hands-on feel for our parts and capabilities and our new dedicated engineering lab with prototype capabilities.
Our 67.5-acre innovation campus north of Detroit is an economic driver for the region, not to mention a draw for new employees who want a high quality of life to go along with a supportive work environment.
Romeo RIM’s experienced workforce, lean manufacturing, and operational excellence is enabling us to build a strategic connection with engineering and purchasing professionals up and down the supply chain, aligning our strategy with their strategy to form strong, lasting relationships across the globe.
