Knauf Bulgaria

About us

KNAUF Bulgaria

Knauf is a synonym for gypsum – among construction experts and enthusiasts. This proverbial association of a building material with a manufacturer’s name is not just coincidence. It is the result of decades of hard work and consistently high quality.

The fact is, if you say Knauf, you mean dependability. Our group of companies had comparably humble beginnings. Specifically the family company was established in 1932, when brothers Alfons and Karl Knauf secured the mining rights to gypsum deposits in the Schengen community (Obermosel) in Germany. Courage, determination, and business savvy were the reasons that only a year later Knauf established its first gypsum factory in Perl (Moselle) – laying the foundation for what would later be the Knauf Group.

"Platnarov's house" was designed by arch. Nikola Lazarov in the 1920s as a suburban villa for the cloth merchant Platnarov. Knauf bought the house in 1998 and reconstructed it in accordance with the requirements of the NICP for protection and as a cultural monument.

Knauf Bulgaria Ltd. was established in 1993 as a 100% subsidiary of the Austrian Knauf GmbH and with its dry construction systems has become a household name for products such as gypsum board and gypsum fiberboard. Knauf Bulgaria Ldt. is a workplace for almost 200 employees, most of whom are in the factories in Vidin and Mednikarovo. The administrative office in Bulgaria is located in Sofia.
