Multivac Opens $20 Million Facility In Bulgaria

Packaging company Multivac has opened a new €18.8 million production facility in Bulgaria, the company’s first manufacturing site in Eastern Europe.

The 20,000 square-metre facility is located in Bozhurishte, near Sofia, and includes a factory building which will produce machine parts for packaging equipment.

150 jobs have been created as a result of the investment, and the new site will also include a warehouse and logistics centre, a training centre and an administration building.

Hans-Joachim Boekstegers, managing director and group CEO of Multivac said: “We are pleased to celebrate the opening of our first production facility in Eastern Europe here in Bozhurishte after a construction period of roughly two and a half years.

“Working in three shifts at this site, qualified specialists will produce machine parts and assemblies that meet the Multivac quality standard.

“We are using modern turning and milling machines just as we also use at our headquarters in Germany.

“Incidentally, just a few weeks after commissioning, we are already utilising our full capacity.”

Ivaylo Dimitrov, managing director of Bulgaria Production Ltd said: “We are proud that the Multivac Group has opted for Bulgaria as the place to expand its production capacity.

“Our goal is to be one of the most modern production sites within the Group and to guarantee the high Multivac standards through our specialists.”
