We believe that we must become more efficient and more professional institutions in all processes from product design to production technologies. Today, the success of the Turkish furniture industry in the struggle for leadership in the world market is only possible with the same goal and the same vision and the same belief of the furniture sub-industry companies.

What would you say about supplying of raw materials needed for mattress production from domestic or foreign sources?
Our main raw material input is sheet metal. We use large quantities of sheet metal and also rivets, automat connectors, wire springs, bolts, nuts, washers and similar materials. In all of our raw material and semi-finished product purchases, we pay attention to use 100% domestic raw materials produced in Turkey and we work with local producers. As our factory is located in a very central and advantageous location in terms of raw material supply, we have no problems about logistics.

We are planning to continue our domestic and international exhibitions in the same way in 2020.
How do you consider the development of the needs of mattress industry in Turkey? What are you planning to do for export in 2020?
2019 is a hard and challenging year for the whole market. We observe that domestic companies are more oriented towards export in this process. The number of companies that have just started to export is quite large. As Boğaziçi Malzemecilik, 2019 was one of the years in which we received the return on our investments in export process. Our exports in 2019 are at a higher level compared to last year. However, we will see the exact figures at the end of the year. Our export target for the year 2020 is primarily to acquire new markets in untouched regions. We will of course try to increase our sales in the countries where our customers and dealers already exist. Besides that, our main target for 2020 will be to increase our export volume as well as the number of countries that we export.
