Bulk Molding Compounds Inc (BMCI) has opened a production facility in Turkey, BMC TetraDURTurkey, which began production last week.
Current production is expected to increase quickly due to customer demand in Turkey and the surrounding regions. The Turkish BMC market is growing at a double digit annual rate annually, and the Turkish domestic BMC markets include electrical, appliance and automotive. In addition to these, there is a strong demand for construction and outdoor applications.
BMC TetraDURTurkey will employ 20 people initially and is located approximately 20 miles east of the centre of Turkeys capital, Istanbul. General Manager for the facility is Hakan Unsal of BMCIs German division, BMC Europe (BMCE).
