Bulgaria – Service Center for Woodworking Machinery


Bachmann Maschinen AG


Three Swiss investors and a Bulgarian business partner established a service center for woodworking machines in Sliven, Bulgaria. The company provides services like sharpening saw-blades, processing and selling emery paper as well as maintenance, repairs and overhauling of wood processing machines. In addition, the company sells used wood processing machines from Western Europe (mainly Switzerland and Germany) that have been overhauled in its own workshop.

With the SSF loan, the investors could finance vehicles, equipment, tools, infrastructure and installations to start the operations. The company created three jobs.
