Balkancar Dunav, based in the port city of Lom, made a net loss of LEV160,000 (USD103,733) in 2005, down from LEV278,000 (USD180,236) in 2004.

Dimex executive director Dimitar Dimitrov said he was incorrectly quoted in the Bulgarian News Digest article. Dimitrov said Bulgarian forklift production, not Dimex's, would quadruple in the next five years. Dimex's production capacity is about 500 units a year.
