Read about the opening ceremony attended by none other than the CEO himself, Radosław Koelner.
Rawlplug has been present in the Romanian market for a decade, supplying fixing solutions to the construction industry across the whole country. No wonder that it has grown rapidly, leveraging this fact for further investments. Our partners have erected their new seat this year and opened an enormous logistics, consulting, and education hub – Rawlplug Academy, yet another in Europe.

It is very encouraging to watch our partners demonstrate professionalism across the board.

Development put to good use
Europe’s newest Rawlplug Academy opened in Romania has been a massive investment. 5,050 square metres of warehouse space, 70,000 euros spent on the equipment, and space for one million (sic!) products.

It is housed in a new, ultra-modern facility located in Stefăneștii de Jos, within the limits of VGP Park Bucharest (North). The impressive new location stretches on an area of 5,050 square meters, providing comfortable and inspiring work environment, full of light, meeting places, vegetation, and artwork.
Besides office spaces, Rawlplug Romania’s new seat also accommodates an enormous warehouse that can easily hold one million products, as well as a power tool servicing centre, providing a unique on-site tool support service, and 3 separate showrooms dedicated to all brands in Rawlplug’s portfolio.

The Academy’s current capacity allows approximately 30 persons to attend training sessions, covering such subjects as:
- Proper handling and application of fixing systems, including bonded and mechanical anchors and insulation fixings;
- Methods for testing, calculating, and optimising consumption;
- Using specialised calculation and design software, such as EasyFix Design and Rawlplug Volume Calculator.
Three years ago, a huge investment was implemented in Bucharest with Rawlplug’s support – the Steaua Stadium was erected to become the second largest sports stadium in the Romanian capital. That is where we fastened 31,254 seats. As a reminder of this fact as well as our effort, a special space for lectures and presentations or for examining various material types has been arranged in the Romanian Rawlplug Academy using exactly the same seats, enabling anyone visiting the place to have a real-life look at the fixings used under the first large-scale investment handled by Rawlplug Romania.
Rawlplug Romania is poised for further market conquest, with their fast customer service, technical assistance, full cross-section of the product portfolio, and an extensive selection of training courses not exhausting their offer. Having opened the Academy and built a completely new place to work, our partners have expanded their fleet of vehicles, continue to develop a comprehensive 24-hour service covering the entire country, and have started delivering on-site technical support and training services. Even considering our track record, we must be impressed by such rapid growth within 10 years. We are bursting with pride!
