Romax opens new US$9.5m head office

Romax Technology, a leading gearbox, driveline simulation and engineering company, officially opened the doors to its brand new US$9.5m head office at the University of Nottingham’s Innovation Park (UNIP) on June 18.
Marking the company’s 25th anniversary, the purpose-built facility incorporates offices and a training suite, and will also give Romax space to grow in the future.

The move to the new site further demonstrates the continued success of the business, which was recently named one of the top 1,000 British businesses for innovation by the London Stock Exchange. Romax supplies leading simulation and analysis technology, and expert engineering services to 14 of the top 15 automotive OEMs worldwide.
“Our move into the new building represents an exciting future for Romax,” said Andy Poon, CEO of Romax. “It is the first time we will be able to house all our UK operations under one roof and the significance of this will be vast. As a business we are committed to driving innovation across the automotive space whether it is passenger cars, trucks, racing cars or hybrid vehicles.
“Our relationship with the University of Nottingham and our commitment to the East Midlands means we are able to employ some of the industry's brightest minds including strategic thinkers, technology innovators, experienced engineers and world leading software specialists. The move to the new site reaffirms this and will allow us to continue supporting engineering projects across the automotive supply chain and at any stage during the design cycle.”
The University of Nottingham’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Greenaway, echoed the sentiment. “This is a very exciting moment for us. We have enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Romax over several years, collaborating together on a number of research projects. Its decision to remain in the region and locate to our Innovation Park is a testament to the strength of that relationship.
“I also feel that it is very fitting that Romax has decided to base itself at the University of Nottingham Innovation Park, as they are now situated on the same site as Sturmey Archer, which produced gears for the likes of Raleigh. Romax is maintaining Nottingham’s reputation as one of the world leaders in the design of gearbox and driveline systems.”
