Delivering products that shape our industry
Prolyte Group opens new purpose-built factory
Prolyte Group, renowned manufacturer of trussing
and staging systems, has announced that it has
just inaugurated its new, purpose-built factory in
Piatra Olt, Romania. By opening this ultra-modern
manufacturing location, Prolyte reaffirms its vanguard
position.
Prolyte started to relocate all its manufacturing
facilities to Romania as part of a long-term plan in
2010. The commissioning of the new factory is the
final and most important phase of this plan, consolidating all its European manufacturing capacity
into a 5.000m
2
facility, with expansion room up to 16.000m
2
.
The new production facility is accommodated with brand new automated production equipment,
new welding jigs and state of the art product lines. In addition, the building contains industry-
leading employee welfare and environmental systems, as well as an in-house training facility for
welding personnel.
The complete bespoke factory, including all equipment, procedures and personnel has obtained
a EN1090 certification in the highest execution class III and is further ISO 3834-2 certified by the
International Institute of Welding.
The total group manufacturing capacity will grow by 250%, which is vital for the continued world
wide sales expansion.
Lambert Bouwmeester, Prolyte Group CEO, comments: “Prolyte has always been typified as
market leader in production technology, which underpins our quality promise. We have pioneered
some production firsts, such as automated jigging and robotised welding, these innovations will
continue in our new factory.”
Mihai Hlihor, Prolyte Group COO, continues: “It’s very important to us to invest in Europe and to
assure our customers that we have the most efficient production facility, meeting our exacting
standards. We’re very proud to have achieved this in such a short time span.”
Prolyte is confident that the new facility will cement its position as market leader in terms of
volume, quality and global network reach, as well as giving a solid foundation for its continued
international expansion.
The new factory started operations in
January this year. The official opening is planned to be
held in spring, taking into account the sometimes harsh weather conditions in Romania during
wintertime.
