Teknopanel, ranking in the 328th place by climbing up 42 rows in the list of ‘ICI Turkey’s Top 500 Industrial Enterprises 2021’ conducted annually by Istanbul Chamber of Industry (ICI), aims to climb up to the higher ranks by concentrating on green transformation investments, added-value products, and alternative market studies.

Teknopanel A.Ş., ranking in the 328th place by climbing up 42 rows according to the 2021 data of ‘ICI Turkey’s Top 500 Industrial Enterprises’ survey conducted annually by Istanbul Chamber of Industry (ICI), take firm steps toward becoming a world brand in the construction materials sector by improving its studies on green transformation investments and alternative markets.

Remarking that they manufacture non-stop at the factories laying on an area of 123 thousand square meters in strategical locations, Orhan Kahveci said: ‘We, as a Turkish brand, are proud to represent our country in 102 countries on Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America continents, to make contribution to national economy, and to provide employment opportunities for 17 years. Our goal is to increase our competition power through green transformation investments and to grow faster through added-value products and alternative markets.’

Generating 2.4MW of power from sun annually

Orhan Kahveci stated that they have been generating power from sun through 6 thousand 460 units of solar panel laid on the roof of 12 thousand square meters of the main factories on an area of 34 thousand square meters in Mersin Tarsus Organized Industrial Zone since 2017. He also remarked that they generate 2.4MW of power from the plant power of 1.6MW annually. Expressing that they have reached a more competitive position by balancing the energy costs with SES (solar energy systems), Mr. Kahveci said: ‘We benefit from the nature’s power through returning our energy from continuous natural processes to our manufacturing lines. We also contribute further to the goal of creating a more livable environment by preventing 942,900 tons of carbon emission and lumbering 38,860 trees annually thanks to our SES. As part of our sustainable environment policies, we adopt using our resources effectively as the most important principle in all activities and we plan to establish SES to our other factories in the next period.’

He said: ‘The fact that our manufacturing facilities are located in strategical points and we have a flexible production understanding ensures us to see the needs of our customers easily and fulfil their requests quickly. The R&D power we have in this area also allows us to manufacture the most appropriate product for our overseas markets. Thanks to these important competitive powers, we grew by approximately 40% which is over the sectoral average in 2021. We have gained a significant growth speed through reaching an annual production of 8 million 800 thousand square meters in sandwich panel products and 1,2 million cubic meters in EPS products.’

We aim to put our 5th manufacturing facility which is under construction on an area of 54 thousand square meters, 15 thousand 500 square meters of which is closed, into service of the sector by the end of the year. Our annual production capacity will be 350 thousand cubic meters for EPS and 3.5 million square meters for sandwich panel at our new factory. Our goal is to further increase our competitiveness through strengthening our presence in the Balkans and North Europe. We aim to increase our annual export to the Balkans from 650 thousand square meters to 2.5 million square meters for sandwich panel and to 250 thousand cubic meter for EPS products.’
