German company KBE was founded in 1980, specializing
primarily in the production of PVC profiles for windows
and doors. It arrived in the Bulgarian market in 1998.
For the last eight years it has been very active and
successful in Bulgaria and has become one of the
leader-companies. Since its launch, it has had its
production base in Berlin. In 2004, for the convenience
of its partners, it moved its administration also to
The production capacity of the Berlin plant encompasses
an area of 25, 000 sq.m. The storage area is 100, 000
sq.m. The Berlin plant, which is one of the most modern
in the world, has 60 extrusion lines producing diverse
PVC profiles for the whole world.
The production quality has been certified by over 25
state institutions and has been continuously controlled
by national and international testing institutes, which
has imposed an inner self-control of quality. This is
why special laboratories have been equipped to test the
strength and durability of a profile in extreme
KBE has been operating on the Bulgarian market since
1998. The recent years have been exceptionally
successful for the company. A network of firms and
partners has been created in most of the large cities
which is constantly being developed and improved.
KBE is always helpful and cooperative towards its
Bulgarian partners, exercising full control over the
doors and windows produced by them in order to guarantee
the quality of the final products.
All shippings of profiles are executed directly from the
central store of the company in Berlin, which is a
guarantee for the excellent quality. KBE does not have a
production line in another country. The only exception
to this rule is Russia, where the company has a plant,
producing these profiles. This is so because the German
plant cannot meet the demands of the vast Russian market
The demand for KBE-PVC profiles is enormous in Russia
since these kinds of profiles are suitable for the harsh
Russian climate and the aggressive environment in that
The diversity of the profiles and the constant renewing
of technologies are the key to the company’s success. In
2003, the German company KBE became part of Profine
GmbH, which was an impetus for the development and
innovation of the production of PVC profiles for the
This continuous aspiration to improvement led to the
leadership of the production by PROFINE GROUP and its
having a solid share of the European market.
The material of the
windows of the future
In January 2001, KBE began producing lead-free profiles.
PROFINE GROUP is the only one of the large producers of
profiles that uses raw materials with a calcium-zinc
stabilizer – in this way it avoids the use of lead
throughout the production process.
Today the new generation of plastic profiles finally
answers the future ecological requirements and is in
harmony with the voluntarily accepted responsibility
called Vinyl 2010, as well as in accordance with the aim
of the European Commission to protect and preserve the
environment and to avoid the use of lead as a stabilizer
in industrial production.
production means no traces of the heavy metal lead from
the very beginning of the process to its very end and
the recycling of the final product, including all
additional treatments. In spite of this, the windows
bearing the greenline logo possess all the classical and
economic advantages of plastic as a material for the
production of windows, e.g. exceptional strength and
durability, high heat insulation, excellent protection
against unfriendly environment and high-quality surface.
