Company EFIR was established by Mr. Hristo Dinev in 1989 in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria.
Ever since its start the activity of the company has been oriented to the sale of petrochemical products and motor cars, service stations and transport services.
In 1990, the company started importing petrol dispensers from Western Europe. After an overhaul and testing by the company they were offered on the market, together with a guarantee. The import coincided with the setting up of first private petrol stations in Bulgaria. More than 500 petrol stations in Bulgaria use petrol dispensers from the company. As a result of numerous contacts with leading international companies in the field of manufacturing of equipment for petrol and LPG stations, company EFIR started offering on the domestic market a wide range of new equipment – manufactured by EFIR. The company started producing the first Bulgarian petrol dispensers EFIR, type BEHAD 2XXX(X) and PP3000 and 3100.
The company started the production of the first modular LPG stations in Bulgaria with tanks of 5, 8 and 10 cubic meters, which are exceptionally well accepted on the Bulgarian market. The first modular stations used imported LPG dispensers from Schwelm Company, but at the present EFIR produces its own LPG dispensers – models DLPG-E11MI, E22MI and E2001MI, DMI-E22 an E11 with electronic indication, producing its own electronics as well.
