BHS-Sonthofen strengthens its presence in Turkey

BHS-Sonthofen established BHS-Sonthofen Turkey Makina Sanayi Ltd. Sti. in Turkey in October, having its corporate headquarters in Istanbul. The company enables BHS to offer its customers expert advice at local level at the interface between Europe and Asia. The newly founded subsidiary is a joint venture which has developed from a long-standing business relationship with DTR Industries.

The foundation of the new subsidiary means that BHS will be able to meet the increasing demand for the recycling, mixing and crushing technology products from Sonthofen on the Turkish market. A number of machines and installations have been in operation in these segments for several years in Turkey, e.g. for treating slag and mixing concrete, as well as crushers for the production of chippings and sand.

The corporate headquarters is located in Istanbul, within sight of Sabiha Gökçen airport. Ramazan Ergin is the General Manager of BHS Turkey; he will continue as General Manager of DTR Industries, a company which also represents other German machine manufacturers in Turkey. Ergin has been familiar with the BHS machines for a long time. High-quality advice is guaranteed from the very first day, owing to the expertise he has acquired in dealing with them. Sahin Alper is the Regional Sales Manager for Turkey. He knows the recycling industry well, as he previously spent several years working for a company in this industry.

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."
