Native sandwich panel and EPS manufacturer maintains its place in the ICI 500 list

The results of Türkiye's Top 500 Industrial Enterprises ICI 500, which Istanbul Chamber of Industry (ICI) has been presenting to the public annually since 1968, were published for 2023. The preparation process began in April and concluded on May 24, with the largest 500 companies identified that keep the domestic market vibrant and represent Türkiye in global markets with their national and international achievements. Teknopanel, a leader in the construction sector, manufacturing sandwich panels and EPS with 100% local capital since 2005, reaffirmed its success by once again appearing in the ICI 500 list this year. Teknopanel, which was ranked 330th last year, rose to 306th place in this year's list.

Among Türkiye's largest 500 industrial enterprises for over 10 years

In ICI's research that sheds light on Türkiye's industrial sector development for over 50 years and serves as a reference for the Türkiye's economy, companies exceeding 750 million TL in net sales from production were examined. Participants were also expected to submit Corporate Tax Declarations consistent with the main criterion of net sales size used in the ranking.

Sandwich panel and EPS manufacturer Teknopanel, contributing significantly to the Türkiye's economy with its export achievements, added another success by appearing among Türkiye's largest 500 industrial enterprises this year. Teknopanel General Manager Orhan Kahveci stated, "Being listed in the top 500 by ICI for 10 consecutive years is a testament to Teknopanel's consistent success. Organizations listed in the ICI Top 500 wave the Türkiye's flag in various markets and contribute directly to the country's economy through their exports. Teknopanel's journey, which began in 2005, continues unabated with sales and marketing activities reaching Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, North and South America. With our new investment in North Macedonia, we now have a total of five production facilities in strategic locations, serving our customers with the industry's largest production capacity in both domestic and international markets. We thank Istanbul Chamber of Industry for conducting this research every year."

More than 500 employees, exports to 106 countries, largest production capacity in the sector

Operating in the construction materials sector, Teknopanel delivers sandwich panels and EPS products quickly and efficiently to its customers with facilities strategically located at key points. Opening its first production facility of 34,000 square meters in Mersin and establishing the Sakarya factory with 35,000 square meters in 2013, Teknopanel has continued its growth strategy with the 51,000 square meter Izmir facility launched in 2018, alongside the 8,000 square meter Istanbul facility and the investment in North Macedonia. With a total reaching 128,000 square meters, Teknopanel is positioned as Türkiye's leading sandwich panel and EPS producer with Europe's most modern facilities and the country's largest production plants, offering 13.5 million square meters of sandwich panels and 1.6 million cubic meters of EPS production capacity. Teknopanel serves its customers in 106 countries across six continents with innovative and sustainable products through its wide network of dealers.

Growing with investment in North Macedonia

Teknopanel General Manager Orhan Kahveci noted that the 20 million Euro investment in Skopje is the company's first foreign factory, stating, "Our facility spans 55,000 square meters in total, with 16,000 square meters under cover. The annual production capacity of our facility is 3 million square meters for sandwich panels and 350,000 cubic meters for EPS products. With over 120 new employments, we aim to become a leader in this market through sales and marketing activities across all of Europe and the Balkans."

"We are aware of our responsibility to our homeland"

Teknopanel employs professional human resources in every department, from production to sales, finance, and quality, to serve the sector. Kahveci emphasized the additional responsibility of being a leader in the industry, stating, "In addition to ICI 500, we are listed in significant studies such as Fortune 500, Anadolu 500, Capital 500, which rank Türkiye's leading companies. We are also among the top thousand exporters in the list compiled by the Türkiye Exporters Assembly. For our present and future, sustainable production and product are our priority, making necessary improvements and developments in our sector's first and only R&D center. We harness energy from nature with solar panels on the roofs of our production facilities."

Kahveci concluded by saying, "Today, we have been included in the Turquality brand program initiated by the Ministry of Trade to create global brands from Türkiye. With 100% local capital, we continue to grow steadily towards becoming a global brand day by day, working tirelessly day and night to support Türkiye's economy through our production and exports."
