Company history

Rotometal company was founded in 2006 by Mr Joachim Setnik, whose 27 year-long experience in printing industry facilitated dynamic development and initiated a streak of success.

Initially, the company focused mainly on providing external services in the area of machining: CNC turning, CNC milling, grinding on modern CNC machines.  Later, in order to meet the customer’s requirements, we expanded our service profile to include production of gears and heat treatment.

On October 1st, 2008 the company signed a contract with Gerhardt, a leading manufacturer of tools for printing industry based in Denmark. Since then we have started manufacturing of magnetic cylinders, printing cylinders, anvils, rotary cutting units as well as numerous other tools used in the printing business.

On April 25th, 2017 the shareholders at Rotometal sold 50% of their shares to Highlander Partners, a private equity firm investing in North America and Central Europe. We strongly believe this merger will lead to rapid development and achieve the status of the leader in the area of rotary tooling.

Our customers are mainly printers, but also the world’s largest manufacturers of printing and converting machines. Most of the production is exported, but a large part of it is remains in Poland. Precise workmanship, maintaining high quality of offered products at every stage of production, competitive price, have enabled the company to compete with the largest suppliers of this type of tools in the world. The well-developed machinery park, good organization and three-shift work system allowed for quick response to the needs of clients. The priority of the company is quality, timeliness and care for customer satisfaction. Rotometal employs about 150 highly qualified employees on 5,000 m² of manufacturing and office space.

Rotometal is currently considered to be the largest manufacturer of magnetic and printing cylinders in Europe.
