In 1992, our company, Maxfurn began to make purchases from Romanian suppliers. In 1995, we set up a quality control service performed by our Dutch quality controllers who visited our Romanian suppliers fortnightly to support them in the manufacturing process. Since 1997 we have had full-time quality controllers in Romania and we started our own office in Romania to manage the activity of the quality controllers and their information transfer.
The following year, we developed the idea of starting production in Romania, preferably in close cooperation with a Romanian supplier. For strategic reasons, a site in Romania was bought that had been undeveloped.
