The present paper investigates the link between supply chain integration and firm performance in Romania. The logistic regression results indicate that industry efficiencies determine company performance and that firms that are in industry segments with high operational efficiency are more likely to achieve top performance, regardless of supply chain integration or product type. Ownership of activities across the supply chain may lead to limited flexibility and does not necessarily translate in higher performance. For companies considering operations in Romania, industry and sub-industry analysis is critical, as success and growth may be predicated upon the industry operating margin.
