New plant in Bulgaria

MD ELEKTRONIK is going to expand its production network with a new location near Sofia

 

MD ELEKTRONIK is going to establish a new location in Vratsa, Bulgaria. In the months to come, the automotive supplier is going to build a production plant near Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Data cables and electronic components for numerous car manufacturers and system suppliers will be manufactured here in the future.

 

"The location in Bulgaria and the associated increase in flexibility play an important strategic role in our global production network, in particular, for our customers in Europe", said Ralf Eckert, member of the Management Board. In addition to the location in Bulgaria, the MD ELEKTRONIK production network consists of the lead production plant in the Czech Republic as well as plants in China and Mexico.

 

The location in Bulgaria has been primarily selected for the good educational level, its central location, well-established infrastructure and logistical framework conditions. The plant is located in the industrial area of the city of Vratsa in the northwest of Bulgaria, close to the border with Romania, a catchment area of numerous international automotive manufacturers and system suppliers.

 

The establishment of MD ELEKTRONIK EOOD, which is the company´s registered name, will already be starting in the course of 2019, on a production and logistics area of 10,000 square meters. Production is expected to start in 2020, and will create approximately 300 new jobs in the medium term.
