Glass Contribution, a Bulgarian glassware manufacturer, has announced it will open 150 new jobs at its Rubin plant in Pleven. The new jobs come as a result of an investment worth BGN 100 million (EUR 51,1 million) in the company’s factory in Pleven. Part of the investment will be towards installing a new 300-ton furnace which will be built be German companies.

Glass Contribution has already finished the implementation of the first two stages of its investment program for updating the equipment and towards ensuring sustainable employment at the plant. The company will now be proceeding with the implementation of the third stage - the construction of the 300-tonne furnace and increasing in workforce capacity. For these developments Glass Contribution was recently awarded two certificates for a Class A investor.
