On November 24, 2023, NEVEON Romania will celebrate its 25th anniversary - a quarter of a century of innovation, growth and outstanding achievements. Since 1998, the plant in Sibiu has been an important part of the NEVEON family and has developed into a major site for the production of block and roll goods as well as technical foams.
Technological masterpiece in Sibiu
One of the outstanding features of our plant in Sibiu is the production and storage of 60-meter-long block foams. Some of these foams are sold directly on site and the others are sent to local cutting workshops and even to Bulgaria, where the blocks are then processed and shipped. This logistics service helps to make NEVEON products available in different regions and demonstrates the efficiency of the production chain.
Innovation and growth
In recent years, the Sibiu team has made significant progress, particularly through the reticulation of foams and the continuous development of the technical foam portfolio. More than 25 new foams have already been developed here, which were previously purchased externally. This is a central component of NEVEON's strategy, which aims to further develop the production of technical foams and increase capacity in Sibiu in the coming years. Expansion into new markets will play a key role in this.
"We will be a 'lean mega plant' that will focus highly successfully on the production of block and roll goods for Living & Care and Mobility & Specialties. By making technical adjustments to the current set-up, we will become even better and continue to grow successfully," explains Lambert Reudink, General Manager South East Europe, Living & Care SEE, who underlines the visionary orientation of the plant and has been working for NEVEON in Romania for 23 years.
