Growth through the years

Today there is hardly a construction specialist who would deny the advantages, which modern construction materials and professionally developed system decisions bring to construction business.

We from MARISAN are proud to have been and be part of this path and that part of it in Bulgaria is built by us. Following our moto and tracking the pulse of the market – analyzing the needs of the participants in it (investors, construction entrepreneurs and specialists), MARISAN has developed and introduced to the Bulgarian market:

- The first masonry mixture for laying lightweight blocks

- The first cement mortar

- The first adhesive mortar mixture for thermal insulation systems

The first product of the company is from TERAFLEX® series – the series of adhesives for ceramic surfaces. This is a product, which in time succeeded to inflict the market as a synonym of excellent and uncompromising quality and has become a permanent assistant to every craftsman and construction worker. Indeed, the high quality of the products from TERAFLEX® series creates the so necessary trust in the company and aids to a great extend expansion of the product range that followed. Gradually, on the market appear other product series covering the specific needs of all finishing construction work: different sort of adhesives, mortars, hydro insulations, and screeds.

An important stage of the company growth is the decision towards offering not only product solutions, but also system solutions – a collection of optimally corresponding and complementing each other products, which would provide the consumer maximal security and convenience. But in order for these particular decisions to be up to date and to meet the current reality and needs, it is necessary that a number of new technologies be implemented in the company.

That is how in 2004 a resolution is being made for the construction of a second plant – for the production of thermal insulating materials from EPS. The Austrian company HIRSCH MASCHINENBAU was chosen for a partner and equipment supplier. This manufacturer is a leader in the field and has built the biggest and the most modern factories for EPS processing worldwide.

A year later – at the end of 2005 the plant was opened and started operation. The machines and equipment that have been installed are from last generation and combine the most recent inovations in the field – so that even now it is the most modern and automated plant for production of thermal insulating materials from EPS in Bulgaria.

That decision allows the company to be the first to offer on the market complete system decisions in the sphere of thermal insulation. The rationality of this decision was confirmed in 2008 when the thermal insulation systems TERMOFLEX were given a gold medal for quality at the 64th International Technical Fair in Plovdiv and continue to be the only thermal insulation systems with such an award in Bulgaria.

Soon after the opening of the new plant, MARISAN began full modernization of its first plant for production of dry construction mixtures. The winning strategy was continued here as well – the company chose as partners world leaders in equipment and machinery production of that kind – KAWASAKI ROBOTICS, MAILLIS GROUP and DANTHERM GROUP. The modernization includes robotization and automation of almost all production operations, which guarantees continuous and constant quality of all products 

Following this trend, in 2011 the third plant of the company went into operation. A filly automated line for production of paste-like plasters and paints started functioning. The execution of the project was assigned after an official contest, in which leading manufacturers of machinery and equipment of paste-like plasters and paints were invited to participate. The Polish company PROFARB won the contest. The fulfillment of this project introduced a unique fully automated production line in Bulgaria, in which all processes are performed almost without human intervention. Its capacity is expected to expand in two stages – the first one allowing manufacturing of 3200 tons of production, and the second one – up to 6400 tons a year.

After the completion of this project and the plant starts operating, recognizing the fact that the good quality of every system is directly dependent on the compatibility of its components, we might proudly state that we are the only company in Bulgaria that can offer complete system thermal insulating and façade solutions, manufactured under one roof, which in that matter guarantees our clients and partners excellent and uncompromising quality.
