Polyweld Machinery and Ritmo

Polyweld Machinery began distributing Ritmo poly pipe welding machinery soon after our commencement in 2003. Beginning with the smaller diameter butt fusion and electrofusion welders from the Ritmo range, we helped to establish the Ritmo brand in Western Australia, and grew our stock holding as Ritmo's build quality (and Polyweld's after sales service) became more well known within the industry. Over time we extended the range to stock up to 800mm welders, and were the first company in Australia to import and supply a 1200mm Ritmo butt fusion welder.

Polyweld Machinery partners with Ritmo welders because we believe that the vastness of Western Australia, the remoteness of many of the work sites, and the harsh Australian environment place high demands upon plastic welding equipment, and in these circumstances you need rugged, Italian-made quality machines that you can rely on to perform time and time again under these conditions.
