Romeo RIM, Inc. was founded in December of 1982 with assets purchased from the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. At the time, its principle line of products included injection molded and blow molded components for automobiles and reaction injection molded (RIM) energy absorbing bumper products for transit buses.
The company's base product was known as the HELP® (High Energy Level Polymer) energy absorbing bumper system sold to 90% of new buses built for the Unites States and Canadian transit markets.
Since then Romeo RIM, Inc. has expanded their RIM technology capabilities and introduced it to new markets and applications. Their commitment to commercializing innovative composite technologies has been demonstrated by their early adoption of dicyclcopentadiene (DCPD) and polyurethane long fiber injection (LFI) processes.
Their commitment to quality has been confirmed by continuously upgrading Romeo's quality systems registrations: ISO 14001 and ISO9001:2000.
Romeo RIM is well poised to support its customers with continuous improvements for active production components, value analysis, and new product development.
