COM­PA­NIES WORLD­WIDE CHOOSE TURK­ISH MA­CHIN­ERY

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

Turk­ish firms pro­duc­ing press, bot­tler, fill­ing, pack­ag­ing and seal­ing ma­chin­ery are pre­ferred around the world, espe­cially by food fac­to­ries.

While Turk­ish-made prod­ucts of­fer more qual­ity than Chi­nese ones, they are also more cost-ef­fi­cient com­pared with Euro­pean com­peti­tors.

The coun­try’s com­pa­nies ex­port its ma­chin­ery prod­ucts to dozens of coun­tries, from the U.S. to Gulf Coun­tries, Europe and Asia.

Sel­cuk Ku­lakli, the project man­ager of

Kulp Makine, said its com­pany has been pro­duc­ing ma­chin­ery for 38 years, all with do­mes­tic sources.

“We ex­port fill­ing, la­bel­ing and seal­ing ma­chin­ery to 53 coun­tries cur­rently, espe­cially to Europe, South Amer­ica and

Gulf coun­tries,” he said.

Ku­lakli said his com­pany’s ma­chin­ery pro­vides bet­ter qual­ity and is cheaper than Euro­pean coun­tries’ prod­ucts.

“There­fore, we have an ad­van­tage for ex­port­ing, we ex­port 65 per­cent of our to­tal pro­duc­tion cur­rently,” he un­der­lined.

A leader in the press ma­chin­ery sec­tor Ok­tay Nacar, the gen­eral man­ager of On Mart Makine, said that his com­pany is ex­port­ing fill­ing, cap­ping and press ma­chines to 19 coun­tries glob­ally.

“Pre­vi­ously, for­eign brands dom­i­nated the pas­try sec­tor, but now, we are in the lead­ing po­si­tion in this sec­tor with our ma­chin­ery,” he said, not­ing that eco­nomic trou­bles over the past year were man­age­able. “2018 and 2019 were quite ef­fi­cient for us. We ex­pect a bet­ter pe­riod in 2020.”

Ulas Kay­gusuz, the man­ager of Karayeller Makine, said that his com­pany ex­ports oil press ma­chin­ery to 70 coun­tries around the world.

“We pro­duce press ma­chin­ery for sev­eral fruits and nuts such as hazelnut, pis­ta­chio or al­mond. Turkey has a lead­ing po­si­tion in this sec­tor in the global arena,” he said.

Turk­ish prod­ucts are of high qual­ity, he added, and they are cheaper than their equiv­a­lents.
