Apparel Manufacturing in Romania
In the last couple of decades, Romania has become a particularly attractive destination for apparel and textile manufacturing. This is due to three primary traits in the Romanian industry; efficiency, long-learned skills, and relatively cheap costs compared to other European Countries. Romania’s membership in the European Union and proximity to Western Europe make shipping affordable and easy, while ensuring ethical and environmentally sound conditions due to strict enforcement of EU law. For hundreds of years, Romania was a centre of garment manufacturing, being one of the largest producers of clothing in the Eastern Bloc. Today in Romania, there are over 7,400 companies working in the fashion and textile industry, making it one of the largest producers and exporters of apparel in Europe.
