However, despite this dynamic construction, I think that we have a protracted method to go to be able to attain a aggressive position on the earth 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 overseas, we see that the trade has developed, but there are deficiencies in requirements and unity. As İ-MAK, we are carrying out studies that may result in these.

There are many various leagues for corporations working in the power transmission sector in Turkey. As the trade, we want to come collectively to set requirements and produce higher high quality and efficiency-oriented products. It is very important for us to develop a culture of competitors among brands in Turkey by creating an understanding of efficiency and added worth by way of standards and unity. Abandoning the competition carried out by producing cheaper and similar products within the sector; It ought to be our precedence to create an understanding of manufacturing in requirements that may enhance efficiency and added value.

We should not neglect that we have to represent our nation as a union in the worldwide market because of the value-added and standardized manufacturing approach we’ll achieve within the nation. For this reason, I care that more companies turn into members of nationwide and international establishments and I see it as a driving pressure for the event of our nation.
