The company Willemen Carpati is the second subsidiary of the Belgian construction group Willemen in our country, further to acquisition and development of the metal works factory of Satu Mare four years ago.
The company supplies metal works and related services for the works contracted in Belgium, Poland and Germany, and two such specific projects have already been completed in the area of city of Satu Mare.
Another line of business of Willemen Carpati, the company established back in 2012, is represented by design and execution of special foundation works, currently testing the soil (CPT and SDMT) on a number of construction sites in Bucharest. Similarly, one new project is due to be initiated in the period to come in the county of Constanta. The specific operations start with thorough checks of the soil using specialized equipment (CPT), continue with adequate and more efficient design supported by the tests performed, and end with execution of the piles in line with the proposed solution. The Belgian Group Willemen reports total revenues in the range of EUR 250 million each year.
Delia Brezan, Marketing and Sales Manager with Willemen Romania: “The signs of recovery on the local construction market are still very shy, considering the growing economic instability, both in the country and at international level. Thus, we don’t expect to see a major turn of events in the construction industry, at least for now.
The recovery outlooks are clearly linked to improvement of the overall political and economic situation, as well as to the capacity of the state to attract new investments. The sooner these assumptions take form, the more we will see the construction industry taking off.
Under such circumstances, access to the relevant domestic market is not at all easy, and is envisaged to become even more difficult, according to the forecasts available in the end of this year. Nevertheless, the more than 40 years of experience of the Belgian Group shall be an important advantage in the right approach of the sector, by providing us with efficient and fast solutions to help as become competitive in the shortest possible time”.
