Sapa has two extrusion presses at its plant in Romania, and employs about 200 people at the site.
Did you know?
Romania is located in the southeastern part of Europe. It is the eighth-largest country in the European Union by area, and the EU’s seventh-largest in terms of population.
Romania began its transition toward democracy and a capitalist market economy in 1989, joined NATO on March 2004, and the European Union on January 2007. Today, it is a unitary semi-presidential republic in which the executive branch consists of the President and the Government.
The country has a rich history and folkloric culture, but all its vampires have probably emigrated to Hollywood. That was a joke!
Sapa established its extrusion plant in Romania in 2004 as a greenfield investment in Transilvania. The plant has two extrusion presses, and employs around 200 people.

We believe our strengths in Romania are:
Sapa has a young and motivated team in Romania. This strong team works in a constantly audited and well-controlled system environment, using lean manufacturing principles. In addition, the plant is certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and has been CE-certified since 2011.
As a result, the plant enjoys a good cost position, for example, with its delivery of mill-finished products. In fact, approximately 85 percent of its production is shipped to customers in Austria, France, Germany and the Benelux countries.
