Teknoform has acquired an additional 20,000m2 of land, which it intends to use to create one of the most modern fastener facilities in Turkey.
Teknoform Baglanti Elemanları San ve Tic A.S focuses on special and challenging fasteners and cold formed parts, manufacturing on high technology six station Nedschroef machinery. The company also has a range of secondary operation machines in order to give quick responses to its customers. “As a business we have always been focused on meeting all the quality requirements of our customers, with reasonable prices, fast delivery and zero-defect targets,” explains Teknoform. “By acquiring 20,000m2 of additional land, it will enable us to further develop our operations and capabilities, so that we can continue to meet our customers’ needs in the future – all from one of the most modern facilities in Turkey.”
Teknoform can meet these quality needs due to its in-house manufacturing capabilities, which includes cold forging and secondary operations, heat treatment, tooling and design, as well as a quality laboratory – which enables the company to meet requirements according to industry standards.
“Quality plays a big factor in everything we do at Teknoform, which is why we have all the necessary quality certificates, such as IATF 16949, EN ISO 9001, ISO 45001, ISO 14001, ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 10002,” points out Teknoform. “Thanks to our top of the range machinery we are able to produce high-quality parts – with the entire production process managed by our quality management system, which meets IATF 16949 requirements.”
Teknoform continues: “We check every part we produce on our Nedschroef cold forging machines, which are equipped with Brankamp process control systems, to guarantee that we make defect-free products. Through our quality laboratory, with high-tech measuring devices and computer-aided measurement methods, we are able to further meet our zero error targets. Plus, we use Dimac control devices to provide repeatable and measurable products and services to our customers, together with our high-quality conscious expert employees – who ensure the management of all these systems.”
To add to its capabilities Teknoform has also ordered a Nedschroef NH615 part former machine and two San Yung 750kg/hour heat treatment lines – to meet intense demand and to ensure the continuation of its current customer portfolio. “We are the fastest manufacturer in the world in the production of special fasteners between M5 – M22,” states Teknoform. “Thanks to our partnership with SMF Tools, we can offer customers deadlines between 4 – 6 weeks, when our competitors are offering 16 – 20. This has allowed us to meet the urgent demands of many of our European customers, and new customers, over the last couple of years, when they have faced so many challenges.”
The Covid-19 pandemic; emerging variants; the global climate crisis; major variables in supply and demand; disruptions in supply chains; as well as high inputs on the energy side; have all been major factors over the last two years, but it has also created opportunities for businesses who were able to adapt and meet demand. “In this environment, it is very important to achieve growth in industry and exports and as a business we continued our positive trend, which was also true of a lot of Turkish companies. While many countries were struggling to survive after Covid-19, the Turkish economy had the opportunity to show the whole world its strong and stable structure with a growth rate of 7.4%,” mentions Teknoform. “We found that there were a lot of customers who had previously depended on a single source of supply, specifically Asia, that needed products and quickly, which is where we were able to help. Now that these companies have seen our product quality, and quick delivery, we are confident they will become long-term customers.”
Another development that has created an opportunity for Teknoform is the anti-dumping duties on fasteners from China. “At Teknoform our main focus is special and difficult parts. However, we can also produce standard parts for our customers. The recent anti-dumping duties have created an intense demand for us, which is why we will continue our investments to meet this demand.”
Teknoform concludes: “We believe as a business we are in a perfect position in terms of quality awareness, production capability, and supply infrastructure, to become one of the leading companies within the fastener sector.”www.teknoform.com
