Turan Koçyiğit, the Chief Executive Officer of Vefa Holding, stated that “We will have at least one production facility abroad this year and studies on this subject continue fast. Koçyiğit also stated that “Our main target is to achieve our target for exportation that we raised according to previous years. For this, we will aim at increasing our market share abroad much more by using advantages of being local in the region all the way. This will provide us a big competitive advantage due to the fact that we decreased logistic costs. This will also give us opportunity to offer our solutions faster by minimizing delivery periods. In addition to this, we will continue to bring raw material and semi-finished products we are using from Turkey in our products that we will produce abroad.”

While exporting 50 percent of the products that our Companies produced in 2013, we raised this rate to 62 percent in 2014. Our target at the end of this year is to carry this rate to upper level”.
