The story goes that our Belgian mothership first came to Salonta more than 10 years ago, but the plant was operational only in May 2009. Our colleagues still remember the plant construction process.

Because, yes, we have colleagues with us from the beginning! We are the family-type of company, we like working, planning, growing together and measuring the good influence that our success has on the local community.
The entire team of VPK Salonta believes in operational excellence and we always strived for efficient and optimal improvements of the production process, that are essential within a competitive environment. Since logistics and transportation are an important part of our business, we have been analyzing how we can optimize both and the benefits for our customers were amazing: increased production flexibility, higher pro-activity and hence competitive speed-to-market. Starting with our first delivery in Romania, in January 2009, we managed to increase 10 times our turnover, reaching a yearly 85,000,000 sqm production and going up to 100,000,000 sqm and we assembled a portfolio of clients we are most proud of.
On the 17th of May 2019, at DoubleTree by Hilton Oradea, we took the opportunity to thank everybody, both the team and our trusted clients, for being with us, believing in us and showing us the faith we are a reliable partner of their business growth.
“10 years of production in Romania is a real milestone for the business and we wanted to celebrate this together with main customers, those who were next to VPK during these years. His Excellency, Mr. Thomas BAEKELANDT, Ambassador of Belgium in Romania, joined us for this festive moment, making a statement for his unconditioned support in developing sustainable partnerships. Companies like European Food, Elvila, Interpack, Karpat Meat Packers, Mardan Exim, Presstein, Connectronics Romania, Ecolor, Hiros Doboz KFT, Propack were some of our strategic customers, that were next to us from the very beginning, putting a base of a sustainable partnership”, said Bart Dobbelaere, Managing Director VPK Salonta on this occasion.
