In this journey of more than ten years, it has become one of the largest and most successful companies first in Kocaeli, then in Turkey, by always staying one step ahead of change with determination, faith and effort.
We will continue our national success we achieved by conducting all of our projects above international standards with the aim of continuous development, by carrying it to international arena in parallel with our reliable, dynamic and sustainable growth targets in the industry.
I would like to share with you the following quote that I accept as a guide for myself:
“To be great, you will not compliment anyone, you will not deceive anyone, you will see what the real purpose is for the country and you will walk towards that goal.
Everyone will be against you, everyone will try to turn you from your path. But you will resist it, and they will pile up endless obstacles in front of you; you will overcome these obstacles by counting yourself not big, but small, weak, without anything, believing that no assistance will come from anyone.
If they call you big from now on, you will laugh at them.”
