Preferred Destination for Manufacturing
Romania is one of the preferred destinations for apparel manufacturing because of the cost advantages it offers compared to other European countries. Also, its proximity to Western Europe allows companies to save on shipping costs. Romania has invested in manufacturing training, so they have a pool of skilled people who work in clothing production companies.
Romania has nearly 1000 clothing manufacturing companies located in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Oradea, Patra Neamt, and Braila. A majority of these companies are located in Romania’s capital—Bucharest which has around 87 of them; Cluj-Napoca has around 30 companies; Oradea has 22; the rest are spread out across the country.
