In the ever-changing world and the challenging competitive environment, the companies that produce new information, renew themselves continuously, develop technology and diversify their products and services can be the winners. We believe that, as the world experiences the Industry 4.0 revolution, Turkey can make a difference in this global competition through innovation. Therefore, we have made our mindset for innovation an inseparable part of our culture since 2004. Today, our companies are in a position where they can manufacture all around the world from Indonesia to the USA, and sell their products even in the Silicon Valley thanks to this strategic understanding. The grand prize of Inovalig awarded to Temsa today is an indicator that our innovation journey is continuing with success. The award we receive today has encouraged us further to increase the current 50% export rate of Temsa to 80% in the near future. I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate all colleagues who contributed to this accomplishment."
