The company has already invested over 260 million levs in its existing plant in Bulgaria, BHTC Bulgaria said in response to a SeeNews enquiry. It, however, did not disclose the size of the investment in its new factory.
As part of its transformation plans, the manufacturer intends to shift its production focus to central information displays (CID), it added.
