Hidromek to expand facilities

By Helen Wright31 May 2013

Turkish construction equipment manufacturer Hidromek plans to expand its facilities as a result of strong business growth. Marketing manager Arda Güven said the company had bought 1,000 acres (405 ha) of land near its current manufacturing facilities in Ankara for future expansion.

"We aim to grow into a full line producer, and will build a big production facility there, but are still discussing which machines we will produce.

"We are seeing increased demand for higher tonnage excavators from the marble quarrying and mining sectors, but also increased interest in compact machines. We are also the dealer for Yanmar mini excavators in Turkey and have seen a definite increase in demand on this end too," said Mr Güven at the Komatek exhibition in Ankara, Turkey.

He was optimistic on future prospects in the Turkish market, given the number of large infrastructure projects planned in the coming years

"The Turkish government has also declared that it will seek to use Turkish brands as far as possible for these infrastructure projects," he said.
