The democratic changes in the Republic of Bulgaria and the country’s membership in NATO urged the necessity of substantial cuts, restructuring and rearmament of the types of armed forces and placed new requirements regarding quality and capabilities of the Army.
Everything mentioned above also has an impact on the activities of “TEREM” SHC, which is an economic entity entirely created for the purpose of meeting the needs of the Bulgarian Armed Forces and hence being strongly dependent on these needs.

The capacity of the company and the production qualification of the staff outline “TEREM” SHC as the only organization in Bulgaria which is capable of taking upon itself a large part of the activities regarding maintenance of the complicated weapon systems having been in service with the Bulgarian Armed Forces, their repair and logistic support – tasks which have traditionally been fulfilled by the regular staff of the Bulgarian Armed Forces, but after reducing the number of the above staff, these tasks should be transferred to the trade companies through the so-called “out-sourcing”.
