Growth, Urbanization, Increased Inspections Characterize Sector
The Turkish elevator industry has grown in recent years due to increasing urbanization and resultant construction in the country. Also, Turkey’s investments in the Middle East, Balkans and, more recently, a number of African countries are affecting the sector positively.
While multinational companies have been present in Turkey for more than a century, national companies are much younger. For much of its history, the Turkey elevator industry has been engaged in three main areas: assembly production, elevator design and assembly, and elevator maintenance and repair.
Elevator and assembly companies are not hindered by geography and tend to be active in seven geographical regions and 81 provinces in Turkey.
Elevator component production is concentrated in Istanbul, Kocaeli and Bursa, especially in the Marmara Region; in Izmir in the Aegean region; and in Konya and Kayseri in the Central Anatolia Region.
Maintenance companies are strategically located throughout the country according to demand. Maintenance companies may carry out their activities independently or act as an authorized service provider for elevator assembly companies established in big cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Bursa, Adana, Antalya, Samsun, Trabzon, Konya, Kayseri, Kocaeli, Gaziantep and Diyarbakır.
