Royme was founded in San Sebastian by Paco Roussel, Joseba Olaizola and Pedro Merino, who ventured to start a small company while continuing with their jobs as mechanics.
After working on different fields, the company started to focus on the specialized industrial supply, paying special attention to standard die & mold elements. At the same time, Royme also combined selling aluminum plates for machines.
Patxo Roussel, one of the founder’s son, took over as General Manager of Royme. This generational change represents the beginning of a new era in the history of the company, focusing the business in new fields: trading and later manufacturing of die buttons and sliding elements by our global partner OMCR: guide pillars, guide bushes, die plates.
The Company moved to the actual location in Igara, San Sebastian, an industrial area with more logistic facilities. Royme continued working on the industrial supply specialized focused on big companies and small workshops, always improving processes based on innovation and time and resources optimization.
Royme acquired the BUREAU VERITAS Quality Certification ISO9001:2008. Royme’s values, transparency, participation and efficiency have always been part of the production and management process of our value chain, greatly influencing this recognition.
The third automated warehouse was installed in order to respond to the needs of a business in constant growth, by increasing the storage capacity and improving our logistic services. This year Royme obtains more space which leads to the optimization of processes, greater response capacity to the increasing volume of customers and a specialized equipment growth that allows a greater response to specific needs.
Royme started exporting to different European countries, making the first stop in Hannover, Germany. This led to a new era of expansion, which would gradually produce results, placing Royme products all over the world. In addition, the company presented its own punching catalogue. This milestone represents another step in the company's commercial management, which is a great boost to the good results of Royme.
