QFort invests over EUR 20 million in new factory
Casa Noastra, the manufacturer of QFort doors and windows and one of the largest producers of heat-insulating carpentry solutions in Central and Eastern Europe, is investing over EUR 20 million in a new factory near Craiova, in Dolj county. The new production unit is part of a larger investment plan aimed at expanding activity in the aluminum profiles segment. For this project, Casa Noastra applied for state aid intended for investments, in the amount of over EUR 9 million.
Located in the town of Pielești in Dolj County, 6 km from the Municipality of Craiova, the new production unit, specialized in the manufacture of aluminum carpentry, will generate over 200 new jobs.
"We are pleased to have been able to make this investment and achieve our goal of delivering a complementary product range to the market through the production of aluminium profiles locally, for which we have seen a growing demand in recent years. The investment, which was also made with the contribution of a state aid of about 45% of the total value of the project, will help us to better position our product offer both locally and for export, where we are present with an important part of our production, in markets such as Italy, France, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain," said Ștefan Cherciu, owner of Casa Noastră - QFort.
