An US company will invest more than BGN 9 M in the construction of a plant for the production of airplane components for the leading aircraft manufacturers.
The plant of 2000 square metres will be located near Sofia airport and will produce parts for the control of the fuel system, as well as components for the wings and tail.
Among the companies using the parts produced in Bulgaria will be Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, private NOVA TV informs.
This is expected to revive the airplane industry in Bulgaria, which ceased production in 1954.
It began with the opening of a state airplane workshop in the 1920s in Bozhurishte, which was followed by the setting up of factories in Lovech and Kazanlak.
During this period, Bulgarian construction crews designed forty prototypes and produced around 1000 airplanes.
