The first private industrial park in northwest Romania is entering a new stage of development, with an investment amounting to EUR 12 million, supported by Adriana and Stefan Cristea, the owners of Arc Industrial Park.
The industrial park in Cluj County, which covers 40 hectar of land, carries out 20 companies, which have made investments over EUR 50 million in the past 10 years and created over 2,000 jobs.
“For this year, we have three great projects: building a sector-specific business incubator in the field of automotive components on an area of 13,000 square meters, worth about EUR 6.5 million. Another project is Logistic Park – more precisely 6 modular logistics halls, category A, with an area of approximately 19,000 sqm in total, whose construction has already begun,” says Adriana Cristea, initiator and founder of the Park.
According to her, the third project is to build a 25 MVA High Voltage Power Station, all this year.
As far as the works of the 6 modular halls are concerned, they will be completed in two stages, the first module being available starting in 2019.
“It is an ambitious project, but we are accustomed to the challenges. We already offer our customers the best conditions to run their business, so we know what we have to do to ensure that through the facilities and top services we offer we can support the way for the future partners,” said Stefan Cristea, general manager Arc Parc Dej.
The halls will be built on the concrete structure, each of the modules offering the possibility of mounting the bridge. The practical element of this project is that, at the request of future customers, the walls of the modules can be dropped, creating a larger space. This makes it very easy to change the destination from one logistic to a production one.
The construction of this logistics park in the region comes as a response to the upstream logistics and industrial market. The location of the halls in the industrial park comes with certain utilities – the already existing and available utility networks (electricity, gas, water, sewage, telecommunications) and the fiscal facilities related to the industrial parks in Romania.
“The most important thing is to make your business partner aware of the unlimited opportunities this private industrial park offers. We come with a supportive environment for development, innovation and accelerating business ideas,” says Georgiana Pricop, chief Business Development Officer of Arc Parc Dej.
The Cristea family (mother and son) announces that 80 percent of the proposed premises have already been contracted, which encourages them to consider a new expansion.
“Over 200 jobs will be created, and by 2021, with the completion of the dejourning belt of Dej, correlated with the express road Dej – Cluj-Napoca – Turda, we will also be able to offer transport facilities”, concluded Stefan Cristea, General Manager Arc Parc Dej.
Arc Parc Industrial is the developer and owner of the first private industrial park in northwestern Romania. At present, management decisions are shared in the family, responsible for the new development of the Arc Park being Stefan Cristea.
On the Arc Parc Industrial platform 20 companies are operating, which have made investments of more than EUR 50 million, either in the construction of buildings or in technological equipment, thus creating over 2,000 jobs. The areas in which these businesses operate are diverse: the production of automotive parts and wires, rubber parts, paper and paper packaging, to companies providing business, management, design and architecture consultancy, medical services, banking, industrial catering. Among the companies that have production activities at Arc Industrial Prak, we find important names in world business such as Vibracoustic România (Sweden), Sauter Turning Process (Germany) or IMM Hydro Est (Italy).
