Stans, Switzerland, October 2nd, 2013 - “The tremendous growth and diversification over the last 30 years required a few changes, not only for ROSEN as a company but also for the way it looks,” said Hermann Rosen, founder and president of the ROSEN group on the occasion of the rebranding event in Stans, Switzerland. ”Our main distinguishing skill is to listen to customers, to recognize their needs, and to propose the right solutions that exceed their expectations. This has and will always be the driver of our technology research and development – and therefore the key to developing outstanding solutions that create maximum value for our customers,” continues the founder and president of the company who has personally started the transition phase at the beginning of this year to a new management with Friedrich Hecker as new CEO.
What began as an engineering company for inspection in the oil and gas industry is today a worldwide provider of cutting-edge solutions in all areas of the integrity process chain with more than 2000 employees in over 120 countries worldwide.
“ROSEN’s new corporate design reflects ROSEN as a global provider of a vast collection of superior technologies and solutions in all areas of the integrity process chain suiting a wide range of industries: Oil & Gas, Energy, Process, Mining, Manufacturing, Telecommunications and Transportation for a wide range of assets, including pipeline, tanks and vessels as well as wind turbines, trains, telecommunication towers and many more”, comments Friedrich Hecker on the launch of the new design this week.
The claim “Empowered by technology” lies at the core of all ROSEN solutions. It is the basis on which ROSEN generates value for its customers and enables them to do things previously thought impossible. It is a promise that ROSEN systematically delivers by enhancing the operations of their customers and making them more safe, efficient and cost-effective
ROSEN is one of the few specialists in all areas of the integrity process chain and is therefore capable of putting together end-to-end solutions under a single roof. From inspection and integrity services to high-quality polyurethane-based products, software and made-to-measure innovations, ROSEN offers products and service solutions of the highest possible standards.
Here are two examples of ROSEN´s latest inventions:
ROSEN’s PU coating for mining pipelines: Extremely abrasive mined materials cause serious damage to the inside of the steel pipes. ROSEN’s multi-layer coating of highly non-abrasive Polyurethane (each layer has a different color) shows the grade of abrasion at any time. A simple yet clever solution that increases the service lifetime of mining pipelines by a factor of ten.
Another outstanding and highly sought-after technology developed by ROSEN is the Electro-Magnetic Acoustical Transducer (EMAT) inspection that is used for crack detection and coating disbondment. After seven years of research and development, the first EMAT tool was commercially launched 2006. A technology difficult to master in a ready-to-use solution, which has demonstrated excellent field verifications in finding and classifying cracks by means of the recorded data.
Looking into the future, the founder of the ROSEN group comments: “Given the expertise, knowledge and experience that we have gained so far, we are able to provide turn-key solutions in all areas of the process chain to a much wider range of industries. We aim for the same pioneering role in other industries as we have in the oil and gas sector. ROSEN’s core focus remains the same: Providing customers with outstanding products and services that deliver true value of the highest possible standards. Innovation, know-how and a strong focus on customer needs have and will always be the key factors of ROSEN’s unique success story.”
