The German company Haas Invest announced the intention to start building in July, this summer, a new wood and wooden products and PVC profiles manufacturing plant, in the locality Sanpaul, county Mures. The investment is estimated at EUR 25 million. The company purchased so far 34 ha of land from the people living in the area. The investment will be finalised at the end of 2006 and in spring next year will start to produce. The project will generate 300 new jobs.

Hass Invest was set up on June 2005, as part of the German group Haas, manufacturer of materials and intermediate products for constructions and industrial buildings.
