EuroTrans, the largest organization on the planet masking all manufacturers of the gearbox, bearing and power transmission trade, brings together main corporations on a worldwide scale.

I am honored to be elected because the president of the federation in 2021 with the votes of the member companies after serving on the board of directors for about 2 years and to represent Turkey in this group as a member of the Machinery Manufacturers Association.
You have an energetic role within the trade on a world scale. Can you consider the state of affairs of the facility transmission sector in Turkey?
In addition to working in the energy transmission sector for a few years, I can say that our business has a really dynamic structure in Turkey, as both the President of EuroTrans and a person who takes an energetic role within the Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (MIB). However, despite this dynamic structure, I suppose that we now have a long method to go in order to attain a aggressive position on the planet as a sector.
As İ-Mak Gearbox, we are working for the event of the sector in Turkey with the duties we’ve taken in both EuroTrans and MIB. As a result of our visits overseas, we see that the trade has developed, however there are deficiencies in standards and unity. As İ-MAK, we’re finishing up studies that can result in these.
With the order offered by numerous organizations all round the world, sector stakeholders create certain high quality requirements and added value. There are many different leagues for corporations working in the energy transmission sector in Turkey. As the trade, we want to come together to set requirements and produce higher quality and efficiency-oriented products. It is very important for us to develop a culture of competitors amongst brands in Turkey by creating an understanding of efficiency and added value by method of standards and unity. Abandoning the competition carried out by producing cheaper and identical merchandise in the sector; It must be our priority to create an understanding of production in requirements that can improve effectivity and added worth.
As an business, our share of the world market has not yet reached the level we must be. We have a major progress potential in exports. We shouldn’t neglect that we have to symbolize our country as a union within the worldwide market as a result of the value-added and standardized manufacturing strategy we are going to achieve throughout the nation. For this reason, I care that more companies turn out to be members of national and worldwide institutions and I see it as a driving pressure for the event of our nation.
