You have an energetic role within the business on a worldwide scale. Can you evaluate the scenario of the power transmission sector in Turkey?
In addition to working within the power transmission sector for a few years, I can say that our trade has a very dynamic construction in Turkey, as each the President of EuroTrans and a person who takes an active position in the Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (MIB). However, regardless of this dynamic structure, I suppose that we have an extended method to go in order to attain a aggressive place on the planet as a sector.
As İ-Mak Gearbox, we’re working for the development of the sector in Turkey with the duties we now have taken in both EuroTrans and MIB. As a results of our visits abroad, we see that the industry has developed, however there are deficiencies in requirements and unity. As İ-MAK, we are finishing up studies that will lead to these.
With the order supplied by numerous organizations everywhere in the world, sector stakeholders create certain high quality requirements and added worth. There are many alternative leagues for companies operating in the power transmission sector in Turkey. As the industry, we need to come collectively to set requirements and produce greater quality and efficiency-oriented products. It is essential for us to develop a culture of competition among manufacturers in Turkey by creating an understanding of effectivity and added value in terms of standards and unity. Abandoning the competitors carried out by producing cheaper and similar products within the sector; It should be our priority to create an understanding of manufacturing in standards that may increase efficiency and added value.
As an trade, our share of the world market has not but reached the level we must be. We have a significant progress potential in exports. We shouldn’t overlook that we’ve to characterize our country as a union in the worldwide market as a end result of the value-added and standardized manufacturing method we will obtain inside the nation. For this purpose, I care that more firms become members of national and international institutions and I see it as a driving pressure for the event of our nation.
