Bucharest, 26 June 2017 – EximBank and Prolyte Products, part of Prolyte Group Netherlands, specializing in manufacturing light aluminum structures for public events continue to develop their partnership, the bank financing the building of a new production facility of the company in Piatra-Olt, Olt County.

The second production facility, opened this week has been finalized during the last year since the opening of the first factory in Piatra Olt – an investment project of 18 Million Lei financed with European funds with EximBank support. The new project is doubling up the production capacity of the company in Piatra Olt and EximBank has financed it with 15.7 Million Lei, both for investments and current activity of the company.

”We were saying last year that our partnership with Prolyte is not a very long one – we have been working together since 2012 – but it is a strong one and we were looking forward to develop it further. Here we are now, officially opening the new production facility and doing exactly that. We succeed in offering the financial resources that a company needs for implementing sustainable projects with internal positive effects for its activity and horizontally by creating new employment opportunities. We are looking forward to other companies feeling encouraged to approach EximBank following the success story of our partnership with Prolyte Group since we are a valuable partner for any type of business – either on small, medium or large scale”, said Traian Halalai, Executive President of EximBank.
