Global plastic injection moulding company Rosti plans to open a new custom-built factory in Ploiesti, Romania in August 2020.
Rosti Romania is expanding and building a first-stage, custom-built 10 000 m² factory dedicated to plastic injection moulding and contract manufacturing. As early as next summer, there will be production capacity available for customers who need an agile manufacturing partner.
Rosti’s Romania site, owned by the Swedish company Rosti Group AB, was established in 2013 in order to support a customer’s manufacturing needs in this part of Europe. For natural reasons, Rosti Romania started off on a relatively small scale with a clear customer-focused strategy. The company has continued to grow and thanks to a number of new contracts from both new and existing customers, it is now outgrowing its current production site in Ploiesti. In addition, it is clear that the Eastern European plastic injection moulding market is growing rapidly and is short of capacity.
In order to continue to serve the market and support both existing and new customers, Rosti is building a brand new factory just a few kilometres away from the present facility. By breaking ground in early 2020, the company is proudly looking forward to opening a factory twice the size of the current one as early as August 2020.
It will be possible to add a further 8 000 m² to the new 10 000 m² factory to support customers’ future growth. Underpinned by strong relationships with the leading machine and process equipment manufacturers, Rosti will offer its customers the latest moulding capabilities. The group’s technology roadmap ensures the company’s ability to meet customers’ needs, offering not only manufacturing capability, but also support – all the way from concept to reality – when customers develop new products for their markets. With this development, Rosti Romania further enhances its capabilities to offer injection moulding and full solutions to contribute to its customers’ success.
“As customers are moving further into Eastern Europe, Rosti has responded by opening a new, larger plant. I am really excited to welcome both existing and new customers to our new Romanian facility, which offers the benefit of cost-effectiveness, whilst ensuring the highest quality standards you can expect.”
– Ovidiu Lica, MD Rosti Romania
Rosti Group AB, owned by the Swedish family-controlled investment company Nordstjernan, is a global plastic injection moulding and contract manufacturer to some of the world’s leading companies within a wide range of industries such as packaging, consumer, medical, business machines, industrial and technical products.
With headquarters in Malmö, Sweden, 3 500 employees, 400+ injection moulding machines, 3 000+ customer tools, eight dedicated locations worldwide, and with 75 years of experience – Rosti is big enough to cope when it comes to large and complex projects, yet small enough to care for its customers and their needs.
“This expansion is a further step in Rosti’s strategy of developing technical capabilities and expanding its manufacturing footprint to meet current and future customers’ needs. Having established excellent customer care and world class operational performance at our current facility, it is now time for our high performing Romanian team to take this next step.”

Executive Vice President Marketing & Sales
To ensure continuing innovation and maintain its position as the go-to contract manufacturer, Rosti invests heavily not only in new technologies to assist its customers, but also in internal innovation facilities – developing staff expertise and new equipment to support customers’ cutting-edge products.
Simply described, plastic injection moulding is a process of melting plastic pellets and injecting it into a mould or cavity to form a shape. Once the shape is formed, the material is cooled, ejected from the machine and – voilà – a finished, functional, esthetically pleasing injection moulded product or part is ready!
