Setting-up of wooden toy manufacturing workshop in rural Romania
EAFRD support enabled a pair of entrepreneurs to harness their experience to establish a wooden toy manufacturing business, stimulating diversified economic activity and creating jobs in a rural area.
The Bumbu family decided to combine their skills as master woodworker and painter and establish a wooden toy making business. With funds from the Romanian Rural Development Programme they were able to equip their workshop with modern, high-performance equipment that enables them to produce high-quality items for sale on the domestic and international markets.
The company produces a variety of very high-quality wooden toys which encourage creativity, emotional development, and learning through play.
The business now exports toys to Singapore, Indonesia, the Netherlands, the United States and Australia.
The project created six jobs at first. This has now grown to more than 20.
