The factory launch represents a national premiere, with Envipco pioneering the market in the production of intelligent collection equipment
The new factory is located in the centre of the country, in Sebeș, Alba Iulia, so that it can easily serve any point in Romania and starting this April, it is fully operational.
The total investment in the construction of the factory exceeds 2 million euros for a production area of 2870 sqm and office space of 520 sqm.
The production unit in Alba Iulia is the European Factory of the Envipco Group and serves Envipco sales throughout Europe. It has a production capacity, scheduled for 2022, of over 6,000 RVMs and over 15,000 units for 2023.
The development of the factory has a considerable impact on the local economy, generating jobs. The factory currently has 20 employees, and their number will be doubled by the end of the year. The local community is a priority for Envipco Romania, they work with local suppliers who are integrated in the company’s Global Procurement Chain, and 90% of the components they use in the manufacturing process are purchased from the country.
The company provides solutions tailored to the needs of customers and partners and moreover is the only company on the Romanian market, which provides maintenance and service of equipment with a dedicated team.
Envipco supports the Romanian economy by producing and distributing equipment throughout Europe, as well as by choosing local suppliers.

Petrica will be everywhere. Who is Petrica?
Petrică is the friendly recycling brand from Envipco, which was launched in the preamble of the introduction of the Guarantee-Return System in Romania. Petrică’s mission is to show that recycling can be done easily and intelligently and that it can be rewarded, the device offering vouchers with rewards in exchange for the collected packaging.

At the same time, Romania is creating a return policy for beverage containers, in which the consumer receives a refund when used bottles and cans are returned, in order to increase the recycling rate. Smart selective collection equipment is an effective solution for packaging collection and warranty return, which supports the new obligations of manufacturers, traders and local authorities, especially in order to implement the mandatory warranty system in Romania from October 1, 2022.
The objectives of SGR are that, in the first year of implementation, to ensure a recovery rate of packaging of 65% for glass, plastic and metal, and in the third year of implementation, to reach 85-95%. The guarantee will be 50 bani for all plastic, glass or metal packaging, regardless of the volume of the container. The packaging can be returned to any collection point, regardless of the commercial unit from which it was purchased.
The machines PRODUCED NOW IN SEBEȘ, encourage people to dispose of plastic bottles and unwanted beverage cans responsibly by introducing them into these vending machines. WE HOPE THAT – STEP BY STEP, WE CAN CLEAN ROMANIA. TOGETHER.
