The production entity is located on a plot of 64.5 square meters and its total area is over 33 thousand square meters. The total investment for land, construction and technological equipment amounts to 50 million euro. The project was implemented in accordance with the “Tailor-made” model from the construction-investment company Horizont-Ivanov EOOD, the subsidiary Horizont Rent EOOD, as well as Yazaki Bulgaria EOOD. The building, along with parking, green areas and technical infrastructure have been completed in only one construction stage for a period of 12 months.
