Founder's Message

Kurucularımızın Mesajı

Our Esteemed Business Partners

Our group whose foundations were laid in Ankara, back in 1976, as a team of two 28-year-old young engineers in a small office is, today, one of Turkey's and the world's leading companies with its 44-year history and 50 thousand employees.

After we set out with some modest contracting projects, we have justified pride of completing numerous and crucial projects and creating value, both in Turkey and in different geographical territories of the world, until today in construction, tourism, cement and infrastructure industries. Looking back on our accomplishments, we have not only helped our group become part of the economic life but we have also touched upon all of our employees making a contribution to these efforts, their precious families, organizations we have cooperated with and all of our stakeholders.

Critical milestones of our journey are as follows: our penetration into a new industry when we have expanded our field of activities; our first partnership, even the subsequent global partnership; the second generation coming into office at the company; our process of transforming the accumulation derived from our business activities into social investments.

Establishing a sound structure and rendering it sustainable paid off at the stage of institutionalization that helped shape our corporate culture. We truly believe that our second generation managers will set the bar way too high through their brand new and sophisticated visions on this path and help our company reinforce its position in the global arena. Now, in this frame, we are responsible for and tasked with transferring our experiences and knowledge to the young generations at every opportunity and accompanying them in this transformation. Apart from taking pride in helping development of our society, we, as the board of directors and all of our employees, will continue to bear the responsibility of being an organization that is worthy of our country at all times.
