In 2005, 200 employees will be made redundant at Salrom (BucureÅŸti region), following the adoption of the Government Decision no. 300/2005. The dismissed people will receive monthly compensatory payments during 2 years and will benefit from other active employment measures designed for the whole mining sector.

Salrom is the only salt producer at national level authorized by the Romanian government.

Company headquarters are in BucureÅŸti (BucureÅŸti region) but it has seven mining exploitation located in five different regions of the country. Through its subsidiaries, the company produces halite, salt solution and crystalline modified salt, applying technologies similar to those used worldwide. The companyÂ’s net and gross results in the first half of 2004 were positive.

Salrom is currently owned by the state but the government intends to promote a strategy aimed at attracting new investments at Salrom, so that restructuring might go hand in hand with privatisation.
