Italian Mapei Buys Ruse Production Plant
In January 2010, the Milan-based international company Mapei announced an expansion in its Bulgarian operations with the purchase of a production plant in the northern city of Ruse.
The plant has been bought from Orgachim, a Bulgarian company specializing in the manufacture of varnishes and paints. The Ruse plant, more than 15 000 square meters in area, is for production of ceramic tile adhesives and thermal insulation systems.
As a result of this acquisition, Mapei Group currently owns 56 production plants in 25 countries around the world. Mapei has already had a presence in Bulgaria for a long time through several local distributors.
