Industrial Zone Maritza is located in Plovdiv region, within the territory of Maritza municipality and comprises parts of three villages, namely Radinovo, Tzaratzovo and Benkovski.
The area development started at the end of the 90s with number of industrial facilities of foreign investors off the ground, such as Ferrerro, Liebherr and Socotab. Nowadays, the zone adds up to ca. 5 000 000 m2, and is a long-term home for more than 30 of the largest industrial and logistic companies in the country.
The successful development of Industrial Zone Maritza is due to the excellent infrastructure and the important international roads in proximity including the Trakia highway (A1) to Sofia, Bourgas, the Middle East as well as the well-developed road to Smolyan and Karlovo. In addition, the railway line Plovdiv – Panagurishte passes through the zone. The proximity to Plovdiv (6 km), which is the second largest city in Bulgaria, provides the necessary human resources for the activities of the companies in the zone. The connection with the central gas pipeline for South Bulgaria and the constructed 110 kV electrical substation provides the energy security of the companies.
