Turkish companies producing energy equipment are raising eyebrows around the world and garnering M&A interest. Recently, one of Italy’s oldest producers of energy equipment, Pietro Fiorentini, put the final touches on the purchase of Bursa-based Gemsat Gaz Ekipmanlar­i.

Gemsat was founded in 1993 by Nihat Ucar, an engineer working in Iraq in the 1990s, and had an initial operating space of a mere 75 square meters. A quarter century later, it has expanded into the internatio­nal arena as well as Turkey producing natural gas pressure reduction and metering stations.
