Founded in 1989, Ramatex is the specialist distributor to the fiber-cement industry with more than 30 years’ experience, supplying more than 25 products in over 70 countries, to more than 250 factories worldwide, and are today growing fast into other industries. With global headquarters in Switzerland, we operate locally from Bangkok, Brasilia, Bogotà, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Moscow, New York, Shanghai, and Singapore in a multilingual, multicultural, and truly “glocal” environment.
Our core business is the sourcing, supplying, and trading of raw materials used in the fiber- cement industry.
We offer a complete service to strengthen the long-term growth of our partners, some of which are today working with Ramatex in their third generation.
No one understands fiber-cement the way we do, and we pride ourselves as the flagship of this unique niche industry.
We believe in partnerships and invest into our relationships as much as we do in the materials we trade. Our seasoned finance specialists provide tailored trade finance solutions and can provide access to credit and investment facilities for long or short-term transactions. We also have extensive experience in financing mining operations as well as operating in countries under economic and financial hardship.
Our shipping specialists operate seamlessly with our suppliers and customers, to ensure an efficient and reliable service. We select shipping lines and freight forwarders for their service performance which is continuously monitored to ensure we maintain the high service our partners are accustomed to.
We conduct all our businesses in compliance with local and international laws and regulations and expect all our partners to operate to international standards and industry best practices in all areas. All staff receive regular compliance training and are reminded of their obligations and responsibilities in line with the company’s core values.
Health, Safety, and Environment
In everything that we do, we have the wellbeing of our employees, contractors, and partners in mind, ensuring a healthy and safe environment for all. Ramatex has a long experience in handling IMO classified cargos, and we go out of our way to ensure that health and safety standards are rigorously guaranteed at all times, and beyond what is required by international laws.
All of our wood pulps and papers are FSC certified, and certificates can be provided upon request.
