The German company Behr-Hella Thermocontrol (BHTC), a manufacturer of air conditioning systems for the automotive industry, has celebrated its 5 years of presence on the Bulgarian market. Proof of the company’s success in the country is the fact that in 2018 BHTC is planning to increase its production capacity by putting into operation a fifth production line, stated from the company for BalkanEngineer.com.
Ber-Hella Thermocontrol started its activity in Bulgaria in 2013 with a manufacturing plant and a Research and Development center for automotive air conditioning panels. The facility, with an area of 9700 m2, is the first factory built in Sofia-Bozhurishte Economic Zone.
“Dynamic growth rates of BHTC in the first 5 years of its entry into the Bulgarian market are the merits of every member of BHTC Bulgaria team,” stated Martin Niland, General Manager of Ber-Hella Thermocontrol.
At present, the Bulgarian company provides a work place for more than 450 employees.
