Cordeel started its business in Bulgaria more than 15 years ago as shareholder in a local construction company in Sofia. As the economy and business opportunities in Bulgaria have been rising since then, Cordeel was ready to set up a fully-owned subsidiary in Bulgaria. Cordeel Bulgaria Ltd was founded in 1999 as a fully-owned subsidiary of the Cordeel Group of companies. Now Cordeel Bulgaria Ltd has a annual turnover of 9.75 million euro and is employing in Sofia a team of 75 full time labourers and a staff of 12 administrative employees, mainly engineers.
Cordeel is active on the Bulgarian market as general contractor for residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Some of these projects are contracted as "design and build" projects, engineered at the headquarters of Cordeel in Belgium in close co-ordination with the local branch office in Sofia. In this way Cordeel can guarantee the client a product which corresponds to European requirements and specifications in harmony with local regulations and standards. Cordeel applies for all permits, constructs the building turnkey and hands over a fully operational facility. There are projects which are among the most important facilities ever built in Bulgaria and are completely designed according to the highest Western European standards like ESFR sprinklers, storage up to 10.5m, high-tolerance floors, high-insulation value, modern loading dock equipment, flexible air conditioning system, etc.
A speciality of the Cordeel group is the design and construction of production and warehouse projects for the food processing and car industries and the design of warehouses for storage of hazardous products. Based upon its long experience in this regard built up over recent decades in Belgium and the Netherlands and after Bulgaria joined the European Union, Cordeel anticipates important growth in its business on the Bulgarian market, as the design and build construction partner for foreign and local investors.
