This new investment project is clearly a positive development for Teva, our team in Bulgaria and the patients who are our focus. Through this initiative, we will further expand the scale with which our company operates in Bulgaria and specifically in Dupnitsa. This investment is a vote of confidence in our Dupnitsa team, our proven record of achievements, our strong capabilities and the professionalism of our people. It is also extremely important for the town of Dupnitsa and it will allow Teva to continue being prominent employer in the region – one that provides an engaging work environment with development opportunities for the many talented people who live in and around the town.
The success of any undertaking is largely due to the valuable partner assistance. We thank the Bulgarian Investment Agency for the professional, timely and valuable support so that Teva’s investment project in Dupnitsa can become a reality.
