The production base of MULTIVAC Bulgaria Production Ltd. will be built on a total area of about 20,000 square meters in Industrial Zone Bozhurishte. The first phase is planned to be commissioned until August/September 2017. Artist of the project is the company MIKS and project manager is IPS Group. The complex includes construction of high-technology enterprise for the production of parts and components for packaging machines of MULTIVAC, including manufacturing building, warehouse and logistics premises, training center and administrative part. In addition, MULTIVAC will develop a center for shared IT services, working from 2015, and a center for strategic sourcing. In the coming years, R & D department will be added, too. The investment in the new production amounts to Eur18.8 million by 2019.

During the initial steps of the project MULTIVAC there was also a constructive dialogue with local authorities in the person of Mayor of Bozhurishte, Mr. Dimov. The company relies on the support of the municipality and others.

By commissioning the production site, MULTIVAC will create more than 150 new jobs in the region. In 2015, the company launched initiatives to attract young professionals in the fields of engineering, IT technologies, logistics etc. “Along with these initiatives, our organization is also interested in employment programs for disadvantaged people to integrate them into the work environment,” said Ivailo Dimitrov, Manager of MULTIVAC Bulgaria Production LTD.
