Ever since 1991, the spouses Székely sensed the people's need to buy clothes. They believed that the best opportunity was to start a business with second-hand clothes, to cope with the market demand after the Revolution.
It all started with a van filled with clothes, with only one employee and a handful of clients. From a small seed warehouse, situated in Vlaha, Cluj county, where the business had started, it was extended to an animal stable, which was later refurbished to cope with the market demand, making room for a commodity sorting plant and a wholesale warehouse, in 2000. The business also extended to Târgu Mureş, in a 2000 sqm warehouse.
Due to the lack of space, the wholesale warehouse was moved from Vlaha to Someșeni, and later to a much bigger one in the neighboring town of Apahida.
It was barely in 2012 that they returned home into a specially built hall room that would satisfy the needs of Roseco in the town of Vlaha.
Today, in the logistic park of Vlaha, the sorting plant and the wholesale warehouse are situated under a 6000 sqm roof. The number of employees has increased to 170, and the clients are as many as that.
