In 1994, we established our first steel service center in Kdz. Ereğli, which was the land in which the iron and steel industry was born, in our country, by taking the experience of steel trade dating back to 1986 and in 1996 we continued to serve with Tatmetal brand. As one of the first practitioners of that period, we brought innovative machine technology to Turkey and Ereğli in order to provide world-class steel service.
We worked non-stop with our goal of doing the best job we know best and providing superior products and services. In addition to providing steel service in the period from 2000s to today, we realized our integrated production investments by establishing our pickling, cold rolling, galvanizing and color coating facility with the aim of producing steel. While planning these investments with our equity, our belief and trust in the future of our country have been our greatest motivation.
Being a responsible, solution-oriented, reliable business partner, our sincere approach and our enthusiasm for innovation have brought us the success of being one of the largest industrial organizations in Turkey.
Today, we strengthen and develop our corporate structure with a management approach that adapts to changing conditions; we continue to work in the field of technology and digitization to cover our services, products and business processes.
We carry out our activities with the understanding of sustainability in a way that minimizes the impact on the environment in the framework of respect for nature and human beings. It is our duty to invest in our country and our children, and we continue to grow and develop with this understanding.
We would like to thank all our employees and stakeholders who have been with us in creating this value and who have contributed to this process while working non-stop with the desire to see Tatçelik as an exemplary player in the sector.
