On 12 August 2013, the Turkish Beckhoff subsidiary opened a sales office in the Zeno Business Center in Bursa. Head of the new office is Key Account Manager Okan Özkan. “With our existing branches in Istanbul and Izmir, this gives us a strong distribution network that will allow us to offer our customers optimum support. Alongside the innovative Beckhoff technology, local availability and guaranteed support are strong incentives for our customers to choose Beckhoff as automation partner”, explained Cem Ayday, CEO of Beckhoff Turkey.
The city of Bursa, 90 kilometres to the south of Istanbul, has two million inhabitants and is one of Turkey’s major industrial centres. The automotive industry, steel industry and textile industry are all represented here. “We hope to use the potential of this emerging industrial landscape to continue expanding our Beckhoff automation technology,” commented Cem Ayday.
