Expansion projects

Barleta is expanding and creating new jobs


The Romanian paper packaging manufacturer, Barleta, is investing in expanding its production capacity and is planning to take on new workers to increase production in its factory.

Barleta recorded sales of 62 million Romanian leu (13.5 million euros) last year, an increase of 19.2% compared with 2017, and in the first quarter of this year it has increased sales by a further 10%.

The company’s production factory at Bacau, in Romania, is operated by a work force of 243 employees. Since it is increasingly difficult to recruit qualified workers, the company is in negotiations with various local education institutions to create courses to train future employees.
