What We Offer

ROWEMA provides a wide range of services.


The entire engineering and design of our ropeway systems takes place in-house.

Rowema is using modern design- and simulation software to provide a maximum of reliability and safety in every ropeway component and the complete ropeway system.


Due to our long-standing experience and know-how we are able to assist and guide you in the development and realization of your project.

Starting from the initial idea to the design, project management and production right through to commissioning and maintenance of the ropeway.


The majority of the parts are manufactured locally in our production hall. There are workplaces for assembly, welding and maintenance work.

We have excellent contacts with reliable suppliers in order to acquire the material, tools and machines we need for the entire production.


We carry out maintenance work for all ropeway components. In our hall we are ideally equipped for the quick processing of maintenance orders.

The maintenance includes, among other things, the replacement of wear parts, the restoration of surface protection, the elimination of identified defects, the lubrication and much more. Furthermore, all parts that require non-destructive testing (NDT) are tested and certified.

Our Background

In 1947 GMD was founded by Gerhard Müller – one of the important swiss ropeway pioneers. The product main line included Skilifts, Handle Tows, Chairlifts and Cabin lifts. The popular GMD ropeways were built all over the world.

GMD was taken over by the management in a buy-out in 1985 and has been called ROWEMA AG since then. Therefore, ROWEMA is considered the legitimate successor to GMD.
