Rutador SRL is a Moldovan construction company that was founded in 2001. The main activities of the company include construction of motorways, roads, airports and buildings for sports activities. In addition, the company produces materials for road construction such as concrete, asphalt, bitumen emulsion, which is sold to other companies.
For more than a decade of operating this business at the site owned by Rutador SRL, the technical infrastructure became outdated, resulting in a decrease in product quality and product output. In order to improve this situation and to increase its competitiveness the company decided to invest in new production equipment. As a result of the investment the company also vastly improved its environmental impact as well as the health and safety of its workers.
The investment was financed with a EU4Business-EBRD Credit line loan and the company received free-of-charge technical support from the team of international experts to optimize the investment. After the successful project verification Rutador SRL received 15% of the loan amount as a cashback grant, funded under the EU4Business initiative of the European Union.
With the investment, the company now meets wide variety of European standards, including:
EU Directives met
Regulations related to Health and Safety of the workers, product quality and environmental protection
Purchasing, delivery and installation of the asphalt plant
Energy Savings and GHG reduction
Energy Savings Ratio: 35.6%
