MULTIVAC begins expansion work on its Bulgarian production site
The first spadeful of earth for the extension work on the production hall at the Bulgarian site in Bozhurishte has been turned by Dr Christian Lau, executive vice president of manufacturing at MULTIVAC, and Miyryam Servet Mustafa, managing director of MULTIVAC Bulgaria Production EOOD. The guests included Dr Antoaneta Bares, executive director of National Company Industrial Zones, and Georgi Dimov, the mayor of Bozhurishte. Production and assembly facilities, as well as state-of-the-art offices, will be constructed on an area covering approximately 5,000 square metres. The investment amounts to around five million euros and completion is planned for autumn 2022.
“The factory in Bozhurishte has progressed very successfully, since it was put into operation three and a half years ago, and its capacity is now fully utilised. It comprises a factory building with the latest manufacturing technology and pre-assembly areas, as well as a Shared Services facility – and it delivers to various companies within our Group. We are very pleased, that this new building will enable us to significantly expand our production capacity at the site,” explained Dr Christian Lau.
“The results achieved since the factory was opened have prompted our decision to continue investing in Bulgaria,” added Miyryam Servet Mustafa. “I am convinced that this building extension will provide many exciting new opportunities, and further production areas will emerge in the future. Not only will it provide a steadily growing number of jobs in the location, but it also shows that we have an outstanding development in Bulgaria.”
The production site at Bozhurishte was put into operation in 2018.
The sales company for Bulgaria, with its own showroom and training facility for customers and staff, is also located on this site. In addition to the factory in Bulgaria, MULTIVAC has twelve additional production sites in Germany, Austria, Spain, Brazil, China, Japan and the USA, as well as more than 80 sales and service companies worldwide.
