Romania: Increasing the competitiveness of the Romanian general mechanics sector

Work hall

As a small family-owned business from the rural area activating in the area of general mechanics, Tempo Pam is working towards increasing its competitiveness through the EEA and Norway Grants

Tempo Pam is performing mechanical processing activities of metalwork pieces and products and assembly services for machines and installations.

The company has applied for the EEA and Norway Grants in order to: 

- expand its production space AND 

- invest in production equipment and related software

Some of the equipment Tempo Pam has purchased with the help of the EEA and Norway Grants are: vertical machining center with numerical control, laser cutting machine, automatic welding machine with positioning and rotating table, guillotine for debiting metal sheets, CNC press break, computer+license and programming software for CNC machinery. 

Catalin Baiceanu, Production Manager: Sceptical at first, believer after. Having contact with the bushy part of the approvals given by the legislation in our country, I did not think that a contract can be approved by a simple approval e-mail until I saw the advance money in the designated account. Thus our project started and we already have in place an extension of the production hall
