About cluster:

Bulgarian Furniture Cluster is a young and dynamic organization inspired by the need of the Bulgarian furniture industry to establish its own image and vision on the foreign markets.

Bulgarian Furniture Cluster is a non-profit association registered in 2009. Members of the cluster are furniture producers, design studios and educational institutions that have decided to join their resources, capabilities and potential with the purpose to increase their competitiveness on the foreign markets.

Why Bulgarian Furniture Cluster?

This type of union is one of the instruments for achieving competitiveness but yet not the only one. The measures directed to the companies regarding innovations, design, quality, product development and marketing are important as well. What the cluster can achieve is a joint step towards entrepreneurship and creation of incentives for development of assets, technology, infrastructure and joint investments which would be difficult to achieve for a single company.

Home market competitors and foreign market partners – that is the secret of our success. Mutual trust, honesty, partnership and business ethics – these are the leading principles of our business communication.

Although the Bulgarian Furniture Cluster members are some of the first who trusted the power of cluster cooperation, we are determined to disprove the proverbial Bulgarian individualism and to show that together we can do better!
