Dear Customers, Employees, and Business Partners,
Our Group, which entered into the industry sector in 1972 with iron production, maintains its operations in various sectors such as casting, machining, port management, logistics, and real estate development and investment. On the bases laid by Süleyman Efe with rolling mill management, Efesan Demir Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. was founded with the participation of Turgut Efe in 1985. Efesan Demir continues its production and sales operations for machinery and construction sectors with its FRR (bearing housings) and STI (scaffolding formworks accessories) brands. In the 2000s, sizable investments were achieved through the successful analysis of different sectors. Within this context, Efektif Gayrimenkul Geliştirme ve Yatırım A.Ş. was founded in 2005 with the aim of devising high quality projects in real estate development and investment sectors. In order to operate in casting and port management, Efesan Group acquired fully, Ferro Döküm Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. in 2007 and İstanbul Demir Çelik Fabrikaları A.Ş. (Efesanport) in 2008. Founded in 2009 for the reconstruction of ancient structures and other construction businesses Efeska İnşaat Taahhüt Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. was merged with Efektif Gayrimenkul Yatırım in 2017. In 2014, Efesan Group fully acquired Şesan Yedek Parça Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. with all its shares and rights, of which it formerly was a partner in 2010 to provide the end product which all processes of casting, machining, and dyeing completed. In line with the strategic vision of the group; focusing on machining, our company merged with Efesan Demir Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. in 2018 and continues its operations by boosting targets both in terms of the industries it operates in and its production and sales capacities with the name Efesan Machining. Lastly, Efektif Gayrimenkul Geliştirme ve Yatırım was merged into one of our long-established companies, Efesan Demir, in 2020.
