Rolast Pitesti is one of the largest producer of technical rubber products in Romania, established in 1990 by integral take over of the patrimony of The Company of Technical Rubber Products Pitesti (Combinatul de Articole Tehnice din Cauciuc Pitesti).

The company has a very wide product range from automotive use to industrial use such as gaskets, carpets and hoses.

On 2 April Rolast announced its intention to close the plant, located in Pitesti. As result of concluding the consultations with the representative trade unions, all 760 employees of the company will be subject of collective dismissals before 30 April 2007.
