A history of responsive innovation

Pete Roemer founded Roemer Machine because he simply loved highly crafted, quality machines. He had the heart of an inventor, and imagined building his own products.

Soon after opening, the demands of the 1940s changed the company’s path. Pete brought in a friend he knew well from time spent working at the Rock Island Arsenal, Tony Tarchinski, to serve as shop foreman. Together they built a machine shop that quickly became known for quality work and excellent service.

That reputation led to a long relationship with Fry manufacturing, a company that built the machines that produced carbon paper. Bill Cade left Fry to join Roemer and, a few years later, Pete sold the company to Tony and Bill. From that point on, Roemer’s history parallels that of the changing technology and growing industries that have cycled through the Quad Cities region.

The current phase of our company’s history began in the 1970s and a relationship with a local company. Their preference for Roemer quality and service repairing and rebuilding centrifuges brought recognition and standing in an industry that plays an important part in agricultural processing, chemical production, municipal waste and water treatment, food processing and pharmaceutical production.

Today, the company is owned and operated by Tony’s grandsons, A.J. and Scott. We continue to work to perfect the process of repairing and rebuilding centrifuges, adding machining and manufacturing to support our work. We’re proud to continue our history of acquiring new customers through the recommendation of existing customers. We can’t wait to see where the next 70 years takes us!

    Larell Palmer – Consultant Engineer

  • img Roemer is the shop I selected for the meat room Sharples unit. I could stand a nickel on its edge while the machine was running the first time we turned it on when we got it back. img

    Mark Gonzagowski

  • img Thanks for helping us out and give Bill a big thanks for us too. Lots of driving for not much on site work but we have never had the solids end off before. Good for us to see. img

    Scott Tostenson – Maintenance Mgr at Chippewa Valley Ethanol Co.

  • img I did want to thank you for your work on our machine. We have not had a machine run this well since we started up our little pilot/semi-works plant over 4 years ago. You guys really did a phenomenal job getting the machine repaired and returned to us. I want to thank you again. img
