Further information

The Pro Wood Cluster has initiated the meeting of clusters and associations from the wood sector, in the Centru region, Romania. The aim of this meeting was to discuss about the commonly encountered problems in the wood processing sector. This meeting was very important because the wood industry from the Centru region is facing some major changes because of some foreign investments in the region. A consortium of associations and clusters was established, thanks to the initiative of the Pro Wood Cluster, in order to develop this sector. The creation of the whole value chain was considered to be important, from the forest owner, till the producer and seller. This value chain could contribute in the implication of each actor  from the wood industry, to create a middle- and long-term strategy. As a major impact of this activity, we want the establishment of a consultative comission on national level, which includes every cluster and association from the wood sector, from the country.

The members of the Pro Wood Cluster participated together at an auction to furnish a campus university.  A price offer was made acording to the request of the University. The amount of furniture was too huge for one company, so a consortium was created with companies interested in this work, in order to fulfil the order. The tender book contained also furnishing of teh rooms with bed clothes, curtains, etc., a collaboration has been set up with companies from the textile cluster from Sf. Gheorghe, the members provided the textile products specified in the tender book. In the cluster, the set up of common businesses among the cluster members has a great importance.
