“YILMAZ MAKINE SHINES IN EXPORT”
Kutlu Karavelioğlu, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of TIM and Chairman of the Board of the Machinery Exporters' Association, said, “Our machinery exports have reached 20 billion dollars in the last 12 months. However, our total imports exceeded 30 billion dollars in the last 12 months. Among the branches that make up this gap are machine tools. Because machine tools are one of the most targeted areas. We are surrounded by West's credited goods on one side and Eastern dumped goods on the other, and importers are running incredible campaigns all over the world. However, in this product group, we do not see the same import pressure in the machines produced by Yılmaz Machine. On the contrary, we have a foreign trade surplus in the branches led by Yılmaz Machine, and in these branches, Yılmaz Machine has a 29 percent export share in milling cutters, 31 percent in circular saws, and 38 percent in machining centers. This is a tremendous achievement. Currently, there is a great interest in Turkey from abroad, large funds are in the race to buy from the Turkish machinery industry. The reason for this is not low prices, but the quality of our machinery industry. Production is being shared again in the world, and we are consolidating our position. On this occasion, I wish Yılmaz Machine success in its digitalization journey.” used his words.

Production and exportation in this range is difficult, but we have already challenged ourselves. I believe that we will stand out from the competition with our six new technology-intensive production lines, three of which have been completed and three of which are still being assembled in our factory. The technology investments we have made and will make will be our most important strength in this process. Our main goal is to transfer the benefits we will provide by focusing on production technologies to all our stakeholders.” said.
