Temesvár (Timisoara) -based Arthema, a producer of bathroom furniture, has estimated an approximately €5 million ($6.78 million) turnover for this year, up 25% on 2006, when the company posted sales worth around €3.75 million.
„The positive trend in this year’s turnover is largely due to the development of the domestic bathroom furniture market following heavy investments in the construction industry. We have closed contracts for the manufacturing and sale of bathroom furniture with various companies in Italy, Germany and Hungary.
Also, this year we want to expand our client portfolio for our exported goods,” Csilla Pfeifer, marketing & sales manager with Arthema, told ZF Transilvania. In total, exports account for 20% of the turnover of the Temesvár-based company. „Our business started tentatively, since bathroom furniture was not seen as an essential asset in early 1998, but attitudes and tastes change and the market has maintained an upward trend,” said Pfeifer.
