Heineken to shut down factory in Romania next year

BUCHAREST (Romania), September 21 (SeeNews) – Romanian unit of Dutch brewer Heineken said it plans to shut down its factory in the southeastern city of Constanta in September 2023.

After years of running below capacity, the factory will cease operations as the company requires a more efficient manufacturing footprint in the long term, Heineken Romania said in a press release on Tuesday.

Heineken Romania will transfer its activity from the Constanta factory to its three other Heineken factories across the country in Craiova, Miercurea Ciuc and Ungheni.

“We will also continue to invest significantly in the three remaining factories to support our ambition for growth and sustainable development, maintaining a strong presence in the Romanian market and in the communities where we operate,” the company said.

Heineken Romania was established in 2008 and had a net profit of 118.8 million lei ($23.7 million/23.9 million euro) in 2021, according to data from the finance ministry. The company currently employs over 1,100.

Parent group Heineken is present in more than 70 countries and employs over 80,000.
