What We Do

Family owned and operated since 1979, Romtec Inc. found its start with the simple yet innovative polyethylene toilet riser that is still used in waterless “vault” restrooms nationwide today.

 Over the years, Romtec grew as a supplier of both “campground” and urban parks and recreation structures. Romtec has supplies thousands of structures nationwide. We have relationships with federal, state, county, and municipal agencies across the country.

 Founded on strong engineering, combined with a passion for quality, each Romtec building speaks for itself. Our line of advanced products is constantly expanding with the development of new structures using the latest in building materials.
