REHAU has started the construction works at the regional hub in Sibiu County
REHAU Group, German provider of solutions for windows, building and furniture and automotive, has started the construction works at the regional hub in Sibiu County worth approximately EUR 10 million euros.
The construction has a total area of 52,900 square meters and will provide storage facilities for all the three divisions of REHAU Industries in Romania – Window Solutions, Building Solutions and Furniture Solutions. In addition, the hub will include a foiling facility dedicated to the window and door division.
The hub will help the company to serve the regional market and customers easily, offering much faster high quality services, thanks to the proximity of European roads. At the begining, REHAU products will leave the Sibiu hub to the Eastern European countries near Romania – the Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria or Greece.
“We are delighted to begin the construction works at the hub, which will help us meet the requirements of our customers in the region more quickly and easily. Our business has always focused on serving customers to the highest standards, so REHAU’s investment in this direction is a natural step. Romania will become a ket point for REHAU’s business in the region, and this gives us an extra reason to take bigger steps on the road to performance,” said Alexandru Oprea, Country Manager of REHAU Romania.
Once the hub starts operating, more than 60 new jobs will be created.
The Window Solutions division will be the main beneficiary of the hub in Sibiu due to the wrapping line that will operate in the new facility. The wrapping component will cover a significant part of the division’s current needs. From the new location, the Window Solutions Division will serve the markets of Romania, Bulgaria and Greece.
“With this trend-setting investment, REHAU Window Solutions meets the high demand in the markets of the entire region and at the same time successfully and consistently implements its global growth strategy. The expansion in Romania significantly increases local value creation. By producing locally for the region, we will be able to meet future regional customer expectations even better, for example with significantly greater individualisation of our products. This puts REHAU Window Solutions and also our partner companies in an excellent competitive situation. We are thus moving even closer to our customers in the region, expanding our ability to deliver and safeguarding our high performance and quality. We are therefore not only following a clearly defined growth path for our company in Romania,” said Carsten Heuer, CEO of REHAU Window Solutions.
“We are glad to be able to bring all REHAU operations in Romania under one roof, in a new and modern location, whose location will help us to serve the market in the region much easier. For the Window Solutions division, the hub comes with an additional component – the wrapping line. This element will transform the hub from Sibiu into an even more important point in the activity of the division. With the inauguration of the new REHAU facility in Romania, we will add value to our services internally and regionally,” said Paul Chipriean, Head of Window Solutions REHAU Romania.
The inauguration of the regional hub is scheduled for the H1 2023.
