Wolfertschwenden/Bozhurishte – Multivac has begun extension work on the production hall at its site in Bozhurishte, Bulgaria.
Production and assembly facilities, as well as new 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 fall 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,” said Christian Lau, Multivac’s executive vice-president of manufacturing, in a news release.
Miyryam Servet Mustafa, managing director of Multivac Bulgaria Production EOOD, added: “The results achieved since the factory was opened have prompted our decision to continue investing in Bulgaria. 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.”
Multivac provides packaging solutions for food, life science and health-care products, and industrial items.
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.
