The German global leading automotive parts manufacturer Веhr-Неllа Тhеrmосоntrоl (ВНТС) will increase its production capacity in Bulgaria by launching its fifth production line in its plant in Bozhurishte Economic Zone.

ВНТС has reported increased customer demand – the supply contracts signed with new customers require capacity expansion, which will be met by the opening of a new production line in the industrial area on the outskirts of Sofia.

The exact amount of the investment is not specified, but it will probably cover the construction of a completely new production hall to the current plant, where some 200 new employees will work.
