*New plant will be a regional hub for Siniat, member of Belgium’s ETEX Group
Siniat Romania, producer and supplier of gypsum cardboard, plaster and primer, has opened the largest gypsum cardboard plates plant in Romania in Turceni, Gorj County. The construction of the new 32-hectare plant required an investment of EUR 50 M (own funds).
The plant plays a strategic role both for Siniat Romania, which covers 10 South-East European markets, and for the economic environment in Gorj County.
The Turceni plant’s annual production capacity totals 27 million square meters, the equivalent of over 1,000 kilometres of highway.
The first product manufactured at the plant is the NIDA Standard plate, the only standard gypsum cardboard plate in Romania that features fibre glass reinforcing. The use of fibre glass gives the plate hardness and unequalled mechanical resistance among the range of standard gypsum cardboard plates.
Starting in 2016, Siniat will produce in Turceni gypsum cardboard plates for use in special environments such as: high humidity, fireproofing, soundproofing.
The Siniat plant in Turceni is the first plant in Romania that uses the gypsum obtained from sulphur degassing at a heat and power plant. The gypsum obtained in this manner has high purity and consistence, being an excellent raw material for gypsum cardboard plates. With the help of special equipment, gypsum cardboard plates can be recycled. Thanks to its synergy with the Turceni heat and power plant and to the recycling processes, Siniat’s new plant is one of the most sustainable projects in Romania.
Apart from inaugurating the new plant and constructing the access route to the national road, Siniat has also developed an industrial platform and has thus created new outlooks for other investors in the area.
Siniat is creating over 80 jobs at its new plant. The new employees, most of them from Turceni and nearby areas, have been trained in Siniat plants in Romania, Italy and Germany.
“Siniat plays an active role in local communities. We particularly appreciate the Romanian labour force, which has well trained and motivated people. We constantly invest in technology and we use raw material of very good quality. We are developing in a stable economic environment with high potential. Our goal is to capitalize on this potential,” Siniat Romania General Manager Marc-Andre Fritsche stated.
Siniat Romania is a member of ETEX Group, one of the biggest global producers and suppliers of high quality constructions materials and solutions. ETEX Group is present on several continents: Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. It is present in 44 countries and has approximately 17,000 employees in 121 plants.
