Switzerland-based Oerlikon Textile Components has opened its first store in Istanbul, Turkey. The
fully equipped store offers Oerlikon’s product portfolio — including Accotex and Texparts
components, consumables and spare parts — to Turkey’s staple spinning industry. The store’s
opening ceremony was held at the International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITM) 2009 in
Oerlikon worked with store owner Kazim Erdoğan — the company’s authorized dealer in Turkey
— to implement the store concept. Erdoğan will be the main contact person as well as the onsite
distributor. The store also will employ a staff of trained experts to assist Oerlikon customers.
The company plans to open a second store in Kahramanmaraş, Turkey.
