In addition to working in the energy transmission sector for many years, I can say that our business has a very dynamic structure in Turkey, as each the President of EuroTrans and a person who takes an active position within the Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (MIB). However, regardless of No obligation , I suppose that we now have a long way to go in order to reach a competitive place on the earth as a sector.
As İ-Mak Gearbox, we’re working for the event of the sector in Turkey with the duties we have taken in each EuroTrans and MIB. As a results of our visits abroad, we see that the business has developed, but there are deficiencies in requirements and unity. As İ-MAK, we’re carrying out research that will result in these.
With the order provided by various organizations all around the world, sector stakeholders create certain high quality requirements and added worth. There are many alternative leagues for firms working in the power transmission sector in Turkey. As the industry, we have to come together to set requirements and produce larger high quality and efficiency-oriented merchandise. It is very important for us to develop a tradition of competitors amongst manufacturers in Turkey by creating an understanding of effectivity and added worth by means of standards and unity. Abandoning the competitors carried out by producing cheaper and similar products in the sector; It should be our precedence to create an understanding of manufacturing in standards that will increase effectivity and added worth.

We mustn’t neglect that we’ve to characterize our nation as a union within the worldwide market because of the value-added and standardized production method we will obtain within the country. For this reason, I care that more companies turn out to be members of nationwide and worldwide institutions and I see it as a driving drive for the event of our country.
