In Shh! to working in the energy transmission sector for many 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 active function in the Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (MIB). However, despite this dynamic structure, I suppose that we’ve an extended approach to go so as to attain a aggressive position in the world 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 both EuroTrans and MIB. As a result of our visits abroad, we see that the trade has developed, but there are deficiencies in standards and unity. As İ-MAK, we’re carrying out studies that will result in these.
With the order supplied by varied organizations all round the world, sector stakeholders create certain high quality standards and added worth. There are many various leagues for firms working within the power transmission sector in Turkey. As the industry, we need to come together to set standards and produce higher quality and efficiency-oriented merchandise.

Abandoning the competitors carried out by producing cheaper and equivalent products within the sector; It must be our precedence to create an understanding of production in requirements that will improve effectivity and added worth.
As an trade, our share of the world market has not yet reached the extent we have to be. We have a big progress potential in exports. We shouldn’t neglect that we’ve to symbolize our nation as a union in the worldwide market as a outcome of the value-added and standardized manufacturing method we will obtain inside the nation. For this reason, I care that more companies become members of national and worldwide institutions and I see it as a driving force for the event of our country.
