From inventor
the pipe lollipop

The family „Römer“ has been operating in the field of mechanical engineering for many decades.

One of the first RÖMER companies “HANNS UND RÖMER”, founded in 1907, manufactured rolling machines and complete production lines for confectionery.

The then patented production machine for “pipe lollipops” is still in use today. We owe this invention and the many happy childhood hours associated with it to the grandfather of Dr. Eng. Roland Römer.
