The packaging company Multivac opened a new €18.8 million production facility in Sofia. The new manufacturing plant is located in the industrial area of Bozhurishte and has a total surface area of 20,000 square metres. In addition to a factory building for the production of machine parts for packaging equipment, the complex also includes a state-of-the-art warehouse and a logistics centre, a training centre and an administration building. The new building will house the Sales and Service departments, an international shared service centre for IT, the Strategic Purchasing, and Design and Service teams.
150 jobs will be created as a result of the investment. The new plant is Multivac’s first production facility in Eastern Europe and has opened after a construction period of roughly two and a half years. In addition to the new plant in Bulgaria, the German company has eleven additional production sites in Austria, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Finland, the USA, and in Germany, as well as more than 80 sales and service companies worldwide.
