The company said it had registered an export value of EUR 56.2 million in 2008, with the major targeted markets in the Balkans, Black Sea region, Middle East and Western European countries.
Last year, the company invested some EUR 26 million on the Romanian market, with its main focus on the new equipment installed at the Calarasi-based glass factory operated by Saint-Gobain Glass Romania.
“In 2009, we will target out attention on consolidating our market position and our efficiency on each segment. If the marker evolves, we will restart our investment strategy,” said Olivier Lluansi, general manager of Saint-Gobain in South-Eastern Europe. According to him, Saint-Gobain Romania pronounced the last quarter of 2008 as weak, below its estimations.
