BHS-Sonthofen strengthens its presence in Turkey

In October 2015, BHS-Sonthofen established BHS-Sonthofen Turkey Makina Sanayi Ltd. Sti., with corporate headquarters in Istanbul. The company enables BHS to offer its customers expert advice on the local level at the gateway between Europe and Asia. The newly founded subsidiary is a joint venture that emerged from a long-standing business relationship with DTR Industries.

The foundation of the new subsidiary makes BHS able to meet the increasing demand for recycling, mixing and crushing technology products on the Turkish market. A number of machines and installations have been in operation in these segments for several years in Turkey, for example, for processing slag and mixing concrete, as well as crushers for the production of chippings and sand.

Corporate headquarters are located in Istanbul, within sight of the Sabiha Gökçen airport. Ramazan Ergin is the Managing Director of BHS Turkey. He further directs DTR Industries, a company which also represents other German machine manufacturers in Turkey. Ergin has a long history with BHS machines. The expertise he has accumulated during this time guarantees that he will provide high-quality consultation from the very start. Sahin Alper is the Regional Sales Manager for Turkey. He knows the recycling industry very well, having spent several years working in the industry.

Dennis Kemmann, the Managing Director of BHS-Sonthofen GmbH, sees enormous potential in Turkey, saying “We have noticed a constantly growing awareness of the importance of recycling reusable materials and environmental protection in Turkey. Many municipalities 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 this market with systems that enable refuse-derived fuels to be used to a significant degree.”
