[Resolved] Rockwell India / Counterfeit Products
Romix Industries (Pty) Ltd., and it's founder, Pieter Prinsloo have been the architects and developers of one of the first Polymer based Soil Stabilizers in the world. This product, namely SoilFix has been in use for almost 14 years, and the product has been implemented all over the world since inception.
An Indian Company, based in Bangalore named Rockwell India was a Distributor for Romix for a number of years up to around 2009. The Directors of this Company are D.S. Junjunwala and his son Archit Junjunwala, amongst possibly others.
In 2010, one of the former shareholders of Romix, Nick Muller broke away from Romix and formed a Company in South Africa named Polymer Pavements. All the products Polymer Pavements are promoting are counterfeit and based on the original Romix Products. Nick Muller and Polymer Pavements wooed Rockwell India away from Romix, even when Rockwell still owed Romix US130, 000. Together, the two Companies installed several trial sections in India with the counterfeit products of Polymer Pavements with little success. In fact, Polymer Pavements were sued by their Indian Counterparts for non-performance. The case has since been settled out of court in India.
Rockwell India now claims to be the developers and inventors of Soilfix, which is a blatant lie. Please refer to the Rockwell India website at http://rockwellindia.com/ as well as the Polymer Pavements website at http://www.polyroads.com/ and notice the striking similarities between the two sites.
Customers approached by either of these Companies should beware of the offerings these Companies make, as they are fake and counterfeit. The only authentic producer of SoilFix is Romix Industries of South Africa. Website : www.leafgrafica.com/portfolio/website/romixroads/
Matter settled amicably. Rockwell India agreed to cease and desist from using Romix product names. The matter is considered to be closed.
