The company confirmed today (23 July) that the purchase – for an undisclosed sum – is part of its plan to expand into the Eastern European wine market.

“Anticipated funding for the (Bulgarian wine) industry, following Bulgaria’s recent European Union membership, will help the industry market its wines for export and this has encouraged JF Hillebrand to further invest for the future,” the company said.

The investment will up Hillebrand’s presence not only in Bulgaria, but also in the Romanian and Serbian import and export markets, where Bora Shipping also operates.

“We are delighted to welcome Bora Shipping to the JF Hillebrand Group,” said Bernd Jordan, Hillebrand’s area manager for Northern Europe. “Eastern Europe is an emerging wine market with huge potential for growth and development. The combination of Bora Shipping’s local expertise, alongside JF Hillebrand’s global network, means we are now perfectly positioned to serve the needs of this market.”

Boris Christov, the manager of Bora, will manage Hillebrand’s activities in Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia.

Bora is headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria and was founded in 1998.
