FRIMO expands Turkish business operations

FRIMO expands Turkish business operations

Sales subsidiary and cooperation with a Turkish partner

Turkey is an attractive market with high growth potential, in which the FRIMO Group has made a name for itself in recent years as a competent partner for plastics technologies. This claim is borne out by a series of larger projects which FRIMO has carried out as a supplier of tooling and equipment for complete solutions in the areas of automotive and transportation systems.

From an international perspective, Turkey is considered one of the world’s fastest growing economies. According to a study conducted by ISPAT (Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey), high potential areas include the automotive industry, energy, transport and logistics, information and telecommunications technology, and research and development. This trend is also reflected in a sudden increase in demand in the area of tools and equipment for plastics processing. In order to be able to serve this dynamic market in Turkey even better in the future, the FRIMO Group is reinforcing its local commitment in two ways simultaneously.
FRIMO will start operational activities and is setting up its own base for sales and service in June 2011. This representative office will be located at Gebze/Kocaeli which is an industrial town about 60km east from Istanbul in the Marmara Sea region. In addition FRIMO will cooperate with Gürçelik Makina A.S. in the future within the range of tooling and fixture construction,. Gürçelik is based in the same building in Gebze and is already successful as a builder of tools and equipment for well-known automotive customers. This partnership will also enable FRIMO to solve technical tasks locally and to provide maintenance and repair services for tools and fixtures. That means FRIMO can now even better offer technical solutions to the Turkish market for the production of high-quality plastic components – in a way that is flexible, demand-oriented and close to the customer. Through its own presence in combination with its partnership with Gürçelik, the FRIMO Group is sustainably expanding its leading position on the Turkish market.
The FRIMO Group includes global production and sales locations with more than 1,100 employees in Europe, Asia and America, and numerous distributors around the world. FRIMO companies have been recognized repeatedly for outstanding performance. FRIMO has earned the SPE awards known as the “Plastics Oscars” 15 times already. As a partner in a development consortium with TTT The Team Composite, FRIMO was honored for a CFRP lightweight trailer design concept at the JEC Composites Show in 2010. FRIMO’s portfolio for the plastics processing industries covers an extremely wide range of processes for PU processing along with flexible cutting, punching, pressing and forming, as well as thermoforming, laminating, edgefolding, joining and gluing. FRIMO offers its customers tailor-made tools, machinery and systems as separate or turnkey solutions from a single source.
