How did you decide to start this business? First of all, i would like to learn about your work and plans in machine production.

In this industry, we have a story that has been going on for 30 years. I planned my education and business life according to this sector. This business is a family business for us. Therefore, we have great responsibilities. Ever since i was a kid, i always wanted to be in this business. Therefore, i worked with the masters in many departments related to machine production. In order to be more successful in this sector, i graduated from the Department of Electrical and Electronics.

I gained experience in both software and R&D departments. I pioneered the application of many innovative ideas to our machines. I am currently in marketing activities in the sales department. In addition, i continue to work as a Board Member of our company.

Could you please give information about your production capacity and product range? Also, i would like to know your usage areas.

We are currently able to prepare a newly established mattress facility on turnkey basis in about 1 month with our new investments. We have tripled our capacity in the last year with the new investments we have made. Our target capacity will be much higher with our future investments.

Our products are used in many industries. As you know, our machines are primarily used in the mattress industry. Afterwards, it is also used in sectors such as furniture, home textiles and automotive.

What is your most requested product?

Our most requested machine by our customers is our quilting machines. Our machine portfolio includes production lines, packaging machines, edge sealing machines, border machines and off-balance cutting machines. From time to time, we have different densities on different machines. In the last two years, the highest demands have been for roll pack machines.

We currently have a very strong R&D team and we are constantly working on new machines and existing machines. In addition, we are working on new machines that the industry does not know yet. We believe that these studies will provide great benefits to the mattress industry in the future.

How do you supply raw materials?

Most of the products we use come from Europe. For this reason, we unfortunately supply raw materials from abroad.

This makes us very proud. We are trying to produce long-lasting, easy-to-use and problem-free machines by combining our experience with technology.

In addition, one of the most important factors that enables us to progress is our after-sales service. Thanks to our structuring within the company and in certain countries, our customers are satisfied with our after-sales service.
