“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”, said Hans-Joachim Boekstegers, Managing Director and Group CEO of MULTIVAC. “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, added: “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.”
In addition to the new plant in Bulgaria, MULTIVAC has eleven additional production sites in Germany, Austria, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Finland and the USA, as well as more than 80 sales and service companies worldwide.
