Pfeiffer Vacuum has produced and serviced vacuum components for vacuum pumps in the city of Cluj since 2010. Cluj, located in northwest Romania, is the second largest city in Romania with a population of approximately 320,000. The company’s new building is located in the Nervia Industrial Park in Apahida. Highly efficient production processes can be run on 4,300 square meters of production area.

“The new building has increased our production and service capacity for turbopump and backing pump components. This is part of our new growth strategy including a global investment program with a volume of 150 million euros,” said Dr. Eric Taberlet, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG. A total of 74 employees in Cluj support the workforce at Pfeiffer Vacuum's other production locations.

“It is a privilege for our Romanian team to benefit from this new facility. We are proud to contribute to the success of our company,” said Pascal Fesneau, Administrator at Pfeiffer Vacuum Romania. The same production and service standards apply in Romania as at Pfeiffer Vacuum’s sites in Germany and France.

The new location in Cluj also plays an important role in energy management. The new building and production facilities comply with the latest findings and technologies for optimum use of resources.

“With modern machinery and plant technology, as well as qualified specialist personnel, we are now even better placed to react flexibly. Quality and flexibility are our top priorities,” Taberlet said.
