In October, BHS-Sonthofen has founded BHS-Sonthofen Turkey Makina Sanayi Ltd. Sti. in Turkey, with its corporate headquarters situated in Istanbul. The new company, which is a joint venture developing from a long-standing relationship with DTR Industries, will enable BHS to offer its customers expert advice at the local level at the gateway between Europe and Asia. The subsidiary will also allow BHS to meet the increasing demand for the recycling, mixing and crushing technology products from Sonthofen on the Turkish market.
Ramazan Ergin has been appointed as General Manager of BHS Turkey, and will also continue as General Manager of DTR Industries, a company that also represents other German machine manufacturers in Turkey. As a number of machines and installations have been in operation in these segments for several years in Turkey, for instance, for processing slag and mixing concrete, as well as crushers for the production of chippings and sand, Ergin has been interacting with BHS machines for a long time. As such, high quality advice is guaranteed from the first day.
Alper Sahin is the National Sales Manager for Turkey. He knows the recycling industry inside and out from his job at a company in the sector, where he worked for several years.
Dennis Kemmann, the General Manager of BHS-Sonthofen GmbH, sees enormous potential in Turkey: "We have noticed a constantly growing awareness of the importance of recycling reusable materials and environmental protection in Turkey: Many local authority areas are investing in waste recycling. There is also a large market for scrap. The construction industry is experiencing dynamic growth, which not only creates a growing demand for concrete mixers but also for cement. We are supplying systems for this market which enable refuse-derived fuels to be used to a high degree."
