ADD Bulgaria

„ADD Bulgaria would like to thank Mr. Hernandez for the invitation to join the family of AmCham. We would also like to thank the AmCham board and management for accepting us. We believe that a lot of great opportunities lie ahead of us. ADD Bulgaria develops smart grid and smart metering solutions. I’d proudly say that we are a leader in Eastern Europe, having installed about 1.6mln smart meters. This puts Bulgaria among the top European countries with such a big percentage of smart meters already on the field. Other solutions that we develop are smart city and energy efficiency applications.

We are a technology company and we have closed the product life-cycle process by developing in-house software and hardware solutions, as well as the manufacturing process. Quality is our top priority so we prefer to be confident when the products and solutions leave the factory of ADD Bulgaria”, said Vesela Malinowska, Vice president of marketing.
