ROSEN is a leading privately owned company serving the oil and gas industry with inspection, integrity, and rehabilitation products and services. For 30 years, ROSEN has provided the industry with advanced inspection and integrity solutions to ensure safe and economical operation of a wide range of assets and facilities. Founded by Hermann Rosen in Germany in 1981, ROSEN has been headquartered in Switzerland since 2000. In September 2011, ROSEN celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Over the last 30 years, the ROSEN Group has evolved from modest beginnings in the field of pipeline inspection to a world-renowned high-tech company employing more than 2,000 staff. This impressive success story started in Lingen (northwest Germany) in a tiny office that specialised in electronic engineering, with two employees only.
The company was not working to capacity. Therefore, ROSEN set out to explore an alternative range of uses for electronic measurement equipment and microprocessor systems, novel and innovative technologies at the time. A promising economic niche was discovered in the area of pipeline inspection technologies. The systematic examination of pipe defects such as leaks, dents, corrosion and cracks seemed to offer a challenging international field of business activities.
ROSEN recognised early that due to the demanding nature of the oil and gas market, operators are under increasing pressure to run their facilities without interruption or downtime while at the same time being forced to meet ever stricter safety standards. That is why ROSEN’s product, service and technology developments closely follow the operational trends of the industry.
ROSEN’s strong position in the world market is based on close customer relations and continuous investment in research and development. Specific inspection challenges require tailor-made solutions. From the smallest device to the most complex inspection system, ROSEN develops and combines every aspect of professional engineering in-house. This emphasis on service and innovation has proved to be a reliable recipe for success, as shown by the double-digit annual growth figures.
While ROSEN has become a multinational company, its focus on service has not changed. Its first priority is still to meet the ever-growing demands and fulfill the individual needs of customers around the world. Combining solid expertise and extensive experience, our employees constantly pursue this goal through their personal commitment and high quality standards.
At ROSEN, technological developments go hand in hand with long-term relationships with customers. ROSEN’s unrivalled success is founded on the essential values of the company embraced by ROSEN employees all over the world. Long-term strategies, continuous investment in applied research and development, utilization of the most sophisticated technology and a flexible corporate structure are key factors in maximising client benefits. Only a convincing price-to-performance and price-to-value ratio can ensure consistent growth and secure the continued creation of high-tech jobs worldwide.
Today, ROSEN not only serves the oil and gas industry but also provides a wide range of sophisticated and innovative products and system solutions to engineering industries such as aerospace, marine, transportation and security. ROSEN also has the expertise and equipment to inspect utility assets such as telecommunication towers, wind turbines, transmission towers, rail wheels and water distribution systems.
ROSEN has enjoyed tremendous growth and success over the last 30 years. While the group is expanding, its products and services become more and more complex. Optimised organisation and effective communication are more important than ever before. In order to keep the ability to respond to immediate problems and provide a solution in a timely and efficient manner, reorganisation of the ROSEN Group was indispensable. Started in early 2010, the restructuring measures have now been fully implemented.
