MESSAGE FROM MANAGEMENT
|Hesfibel was established in Kayseri,
Turkey in 1990 with the goal of producing fiber optic cable. This investment
was undertaken upon the urging and with the support of the then-president of Turkey,
entirely with Turkish capital. The capitalization was completed very quickly and
production commenced, thus leading Hesfibel, almost immediately, to a market leadership
position in the production of fiber optic cables. Since its founding, Hesfibel has
continued its growth trend and has produced many technological innovations. This
growth is due to its operational policy based on prudent investments, and the
importance it gives to R & D. Hesfibel is sound and secure because it is based
on the highest technology systems. Hesfibel enjoys an ever increasing market share with a
growing base and works to develop lasting relationship with new customers. Hesfibel's
fiber optic cables have been installed in projects around the world and we will continue
to strive to be involved in high value projects everywhere. Our investments in
leading-edge technology, combined with the superior performance of our products, will
enable us to keep increasing our share in world markets.
In 1991 Hesfibel delivered its first order of fiber optic cables to Turkish
Telecom and the company soon gained many other customers as well, rising quickly to
a leadership position in Turkey's fiber optic cable market. Entering foreign markets was
one of Hesfibel's primary targets from its founding. In 1993 Hesfibel participated in the
Telecom Malaysia contractual bid inconjunction with the Marconi Italy. Upon winning the
sixty million USD contract, Hesfibel took its first step into world markets. This
constituted an important stride for Hesfibel, with increasing production capacities and in
its recognition on world market. As we also provided engineering support services to the
Malaysian contract, this became our first foreign-based endeavor. Since then Hesfibel has
completed large-scale projects, both at home and abroad. Some of its major projects abroad
are as follows:
