Romatex an important supplier for South African hospitality sector

The South African hospitality industry is on a major growth drive since the global pandemic nearly decimated the entire sector. Every hotel, bed and breakfast, lodge and guest house is looking for ways to improve their services and facilities in order to entice tourists and local guests. It is a highly-competitive sector, so the right local suppliers are needed.

Romatex plays a vital role in the South African hospitality supply chain. As a leading manufacturer and supplier of stitch-bonded non-woven material and other textiles for the hospitality sector, Romatex can ensure world-class linens for your guests. The company has made a string of investments in its facilities and machinery in recent years. 

We supply various textiles and bedding to boutique hotels, lodges and guest houses throughout the country. These include customised linens, such as duvets, sheets, pillow cases and mattress protectors. Romatex has over 50 years of experience in the industry and a proven track record of quality and reliability, ensuring that our customers receive world-class textiles on time.

Why choose a local supplier?

For many lodges and BnBs, linens and homeware are crucial points of consideration. While imported textiles and bedding are an option, they are often prone to delays due to international shipping and slow processing at ports. It also comes with the risk of not being able to hold and feel the products in your hands before purchasing.

In this regard, a local supplier will drastically improve lead times and it will also give you the opportunity to see the products yourself. As the textiles and homeware are shipped from within South Africa, hospitality companies can expect delivery within a matter of days or weeks. In addition, Romatex can customise certain textiles to meet your individual needs and specifications.

Procurement managers are welcome to visit our factory store and manufacturing facility in Cape Town to see what we have to offer. This allows you to touch, hold and feel the linens before making a decision to purchase. It will also allow you to see exactly what your guests will be sleeping on, wearing or using during their stay.
