The plant is expected to start operating in October, employing some 100 people. The Swiss company selected Bulgaria for its new plant due to the countrys favourable geographical position and good logistics, as well as due to the high quality of the labour force and the lower personnel costs.

Then the Swiss company set up its local unit R&W Bulgaria, which also manages the companys operations in Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Romania and Slovenia.
