Excellence is not a static condition but an ongoing quest. Or in other words: If you want to continue to do really well in the long term, you have to keep making improvements in the short term. Entirely in line with this philosophy, we at Rotan, with over 200 employees, develop complete solutions - from pipe and plant construction and tank storage to EL&C and cleaning technology - for our customers from the most diverse industrial branches at home and abroad.
As an innovative company, we meet the individual needs of our customers and react with maximum flexibility to their wishes. The entire project is implemented from one single provider. Professional, highly qualified specialist staff assist our customers from the planning and construction stages to inspection and service performances. We work in accordance with state-of-the-art technology and the latest quality standards. The headquarters of our company, founded in 1987, can be found in Dannstadt, just a few kilometres away from the industrial metropolis Ludwigshafen am Rhein. And with our additional branches in Rostock, Leuna and Gelsenkirchen, we are always close to our customers.
