Caproni in Bulgaria

SFKB (Samoletna Fabrika Kaproni Bulgarski) or Airplane Factory Caproni, Bulgarian. The SFKB Kasanlak factory was originally completed (Dec 1926) as a Czechoslovakian Aero branch plant. It was bought by Caproni in 1930 (with a contract promising at least 10 years of use).

In Sep 1942, SFKB was nationalized and renamed DSF Kasanlak a branch plant of the Darzhavna Samoletna Fabrika or State Aircraft Factory (the main plant being Lovech).
