Özyaşar Tel ve Galvanizleme Sanayi A.Ş. produces cold-drawn wires, galvanized wires, annealed wires and lubricated baling wires, particularly for the cabling sector but also for sectors such as automotive supply industry, packaging, construction and agriculture, as well as manufacturers of steel wire rope and perimeter security systems such as fence panels.
Our company, which is one of the most prominent business organizations in Turkey as a firm that has been listed among the first 1000 export firms and the second 500 industrial companies in the country, exports its products to a total of 46 countries from various points of the world, particularly in the regions of the Americas, Europe and Middle East.
Operating with the experience and expertise brought on by nearly 60 years of involvement in trade activities and over 35 years of wire production, Özyaşar is well aware of its responsibilities towards customers and the Turkish economy, and has adopted a strategy of dynamic structuring, product diversification, and continuous development and progress in services and technologies on a sectoral basis.

Proven Success in Innovations and R&D
Innovations and R&D operations form the foundation on which efficiency and value-added product manufacturing are built. They constitute the key to success in maintaining leadership in the competition environment. In this sense, we continue our product development and R&D activities within scope of improvement and advancement projects.
Özyaşar Tel ve Galvanizleme is the first company in Turkey to use rosette-shaped coiling technology in production of galvanized wires, nitrogen gas wiping systems in production of galvanized goods and cold drawing processes with rolling cassettes in wire drawing during production operations. We have the means to manufacture and design all the machines and production lines we use for our products. The production development and improvement activities of Özyaşar, as well as the operations for establishment of an R&D center, continue at full speed.
Real Experience and Current Developments
Our greatest problem in production is the inability to train proficient workers or find well-qualified workers in the sector for employment, as well as the rate at which employees change jobs, despite the many investments we make in constantly changing and developing technologies. The greatest short-term difficulty we experience in sales, on the other hand, is the fact that customers prefer cheaper products instead of high-quality products and services, as well as the freight costs that are incurred in the markets we endeavor to develop, and cost-increasing procedures that arise during export processes.
Insights to 2017
We expect for the demand in the domestic market to decrease in 2017 but believe that the return from international markets will be more than enough to bridge the gap. Therefore, we aim to lower costs by focusing on value-added products and increasing efficiency and, in turn, achieve a growth rate that is higher than that of 2016 by 10 to 15%.
Our other goals for 2017 include increasing the share of export in our total turnover to a rate around 60%, as well as enhancing and maintaining customer satisfaction with an approach based on supply of high-quality goods and services.
Through a high installed capacity, wide product range and superior production quality, Özyaşar Tel ve Galvanizleme continues to expand by constantly growing stronger and maintaining its position among the most prominent wire manufacturers.
