Metyx Composites is continusing the expansion of its Tuzla, Istanbul headquarters in a three-part plan already underway.
The first of the expansion efforts was an additional warehousing facility, which was constructed in just six weeks at the close of 2007.
To offset space constraints, the second part of the expansion efforts was Metyx Composites’ purchase of new land that is adjacent to the company's existing 22,000 square metre headquarters.
The land is planned to be used for yet another new and even larger facility, which is the third part to the expansion plan. It will be a two-story, 8,000 square meter building scheduled to be constructed in 2009. This new facility will be used for additional production lines, warehousing, offices, and state-of-the art laboratories. It will also include a dedicated space with tight environmental control for the production of carbon reinforcements. “We are working with one of the country's most renowned architects, Mr. Cengiz Uyanusta, on this project,” stated Erol Ustunel, President, Metyx Composite, Telateks A.S.
“Our factory expansion in 2005 was built to meet requirements for projected growth through 2010. However, in 2007 we came to the happy realization that our growth had exceeded our projections. We will continue to expand our headquarters as a result,” continued Erol Ustunel.
