Thus ESD Bulgaria expressed its involvement in the issues of Bulgarian education and its desire to cooperate with all academic establishments in the country. "We would like to work jointly with the various universities and vocational secondary schools, as well as with the industrial consumers in the direction of solving the most pressing issue at the moment - organizing NC-programming school centers. Presently the industrial sector is in a serious demand of qualified staff for work with CNC metal-cutting machines", said Emil Minkov, manager of ESD Bulgaria.
The Kovosvit MAS product range is offered in Bulgaria by ESD Bulgaria since April 2008.

Naturally, we have to give what is due to the Technical University of Sofia, the Department of Technology of Machine Building and Metal Cutting Machines for the assistance provided.
