Currently, Safetech Innovations is controlled by Victor Gansac, general manager, and Paul Rusu, financial director, each with a 50% stake in the company.
In 2019, Safetech Innovations recorded a turnover of RON 10.5 mln (EUR 2 mln), 56.4% more than in 2018, and a net profit of RON 1.25 mln (EUR 258,000), up 26.3%.
