As long as six thousands years ago, in the lands of our ancestors skillful craftsmen made exquisite gold and silver treasures still
arousing admiration, forged sharp swards and made tough shields. Not only the mythic Orpheus lived in these lands but also the
glorious Spartacus mastered the art of battle here using arms made by the talented ancient craftsmen. All successes of Bulgarian warriors from the foundation of Bulgarian state in 681 on were assisted by the merits of Bulgarian arms. Now the modern
Bulgarian defence industry has proved its ability to produce high efficient and reliable products, which are well accepted in many
countries over the world.
Bulgarian Defence Industry Association (BDIA) is a non-profit legal entity founded in 2004 by twelve companies leading in the
branch. It is aimed to serve as a forum for exchange of ideas between state bodies and defence industry for resolving the problems of the branch and its steady development. The Association aims at expressing the united voice of the Bulgarian defence
industry on the matters of modernization, defence industry policy, offset policy and policy for procedures and procurement for
national defence and security, scientific researches and technological development. BDIA is working for the progress and consolidation of the branch for resolving the problems of the national defence and security.
We keep contacts and cooperate with the Bulgarian state bodies and with our partners, as well as with related associations from
the country and abroad in the field of the defence industry and technologies. The Association acquires and spreads information concerning the state policy and procedures for defence and security procurement, scientific researches and technological
development. We support the activities of the state bodies in security sector aimed to development of defence industry. Carrying
out its aims our Association arranges national and international meetings and conferences, spreads abroad information about its
activities and the capabilities of its members and forms program directions in functional fields.

TEREM SHC, Sofia, as a successor to the “Military Bases and Factories” Department of the Ministry of Defence was established pursuant to Council of Ministers Resolution in 1965. It was structured as
an economic entity comprising the military-repair factories of the
Ministry of Defence and providing repair and overhaul of military
equipment for the Bulgarian Armed Forces.
Over the period from 1965 to 1988, meeting the needs of the
Bulgarian Armed Forces, the Department provided repair, overhaul
and modernization of military equipment and production of spare
parts for this equipment, as well as export of repair of aviation
equipment, ship repair, manufacture of armed vehicles, complete
sets, units and spare parts for other countries.
At present the company has 6 daughter companies and owns
shares in two other companies performing repair, overhaul, modernization and logistic support of:
• Aviation equipment - aircraft, aircraft engines, helicopters and
aircraft service equipment;
• Ship repair - ships, armament and equipment for the Navy;
• Armoured equipment - tanks, track and
wheeled armored vehicles, heavy and light
trucks, jeeps, coaches and manufacture of
spare parts;
• Small arms, light weapons, artillery weapons,
missiles and ammunition;
• Radar and communication equipment.
Besides meeting the needs of the Bulgarian
Armed Forces, by means of the available production capacities and the existing staff, the company also performs export of repair and overhaul
of armament, equipment and spare parts. It
manufactures machine-building products for civil
use and is an example of successful business in
the field of supply and maintenance of weapons
and equipment for the Bulgarian Armed Forces.
TEREM SHC is a sole leader on the home market
of the Republic of Bulgaria regarding repair and
overhaul of armament and equipment for the
National Security System. “TEREM” SHC is the
only company in this country possessing the
required production capacity and qualified staff
for performing these activities.
Thanks to its capacities for repair and overhaul
of aviation engines and aircraft, the company
occupies serious positions regarding their overhaul on the international market.
TEREM SHC owns production equipment which
is unique for Bulgaria (flexible automated manufacturing systems, multi coordinate processing
machines, erosion machines, clean rooms) and
which guarantees high-performance technology
of overhaul and spare parts production.
In compliance with the requirements of the
Classified Information Protection Act are ensured
the necessary conditions for safe-keeping and
protection of the classified information in TEREM
SHC and in its daughter companies.
These prerequisites enable the growth of the sales
size on the national market in the following trends:
• Participation in programs for repair, overhaul, modernization, production, utilization
and logistical support of armament and
equipment for the needs of the Bulgarian
Armed Forces;
• Expanding commercial production on the
basis of the technologies to be implemented
regarding rearmament of the Bulgarian
Armed Forces.
Since 2003 the company has actively been involved, and jointly with foreign companies, in programs
for modernization of armament and equipment of the Bulgarian Armed Forces:
• Modernization of RLS P-37 and P-18;
• Modernization of “BTR-60PB” armored personnel carrier;
• Life extension and transition to on-condition maintenance of MiG-29;
• Modernization of Mi-17 and Mi-24 helicopters.
It is envisaged that during the coming years the company will participate in modernization of aviation
equipment, armored equipment, anti-aircraft missile systems, ships, providing diesel engines for the
fleet of vehicles, etc. for the needs of and under programs of the Bulgarian Armed Forces.
From the beginning of year 2000 TEREM SHC has participated successfully in programs for destruction, utilization and demilitarization of surplus armament, ammunition, anti-air systems and equipment of the Bulgarian Armed Forces.
In this trend projects have been fulfilled, part of which were financed by Programs of the United Nations and the US State Department:
• Utilization of anti-infantry mines;
• Utilization of small arms and light weapons ;
• Utilization of SS-23, “Frog” and “Scud” missile systems.
Some NATO’s southern-wing member countries are also interested in the utilization of ammunition,
armament and equipment in TEREM SHC. In this connection we are working for the enlargement of
utilization production capacity of the company strictly observing of the relevant ecological regulations.
The company and its daughter companies are certified under ISO-9001, ISO-14001, ISO-18001 and
AQAP 2110.
