*Kırayoğlu: “I believe that the most positive gain for Turkish manufacturers is that Turkey’s being a leading supplier drew a great deal of attention during this period.”
Kırayteks, a Bursa-based company, is known for its countless designs in its unique product range as mattress ticking fabrics, varieties and blends of roller blinds, and technical textile fabrics. The company also placed itself amongst the top-quality producers in the region, with the diversity of fabrics it offers for the bedding industry and its commitment to internationally acknowledged standards of bedding fabrics. The Kırayteks fabric qualities possess high quality natural and synthetic yarns consisting of polyester, polypropylene, polyamide, cotton, linen, viscose or blend of these fibers. In addition, fabrics are given properties such as anti-flammability, antibacterial, light and heat resistance depending on the student and various improvements are being made.
We asked the question which is on the top the agenda of every indusry and every businessperson to Onur Kırayoğlu. This is the question of the year:
We are tired of talking about face masks and other precautions against Covid-19. Instead, there has been a lot of changes in the export activities. Have your sales operations been changed? How were your export markets and volume been affected? Are there any positive changes such a new markets, products or innovations by COVID-19? What would you say about the changes?
Kırayoğlu commented on the issue with a clear and informative way:
The biggest problems arose at border passages with different quarantine applications. We faced difficulties in finding vehicles for international transportation. These were overcome in the meantime; however, we were confronted with restrictions on travels and cancellations of international fairs. All these caused converting to virtual platforms.
Meanwhile, because of the continuation of the risks over China, the main supplier country of the world, we have witnessed new market alternative searches by all industries. This has reflected us as volume increase in existing countries in addition to gaining customers from different countries as well. I can say that our West Europe and American market have been continuing without any considerable loss. I believe that the most positive gain for Turkish manufacturers is that Turkey’s being a leading supplier drew a great deal of attention during this period. I hope this disaster gets vanished in the soonest time and the world starts normalization. Until then we should play the game with the new rules.
