Aşut Fiberglass manufactures glass fibre pipes and chimneys in the Mersin-Tarsus Industrial Zone (Turkey). The company will soon commission a new mobile production plant to enhance its competitive power.
Aşut Fiberglass’ new mobile production plant will be used for onsite manufacturing of pipes 8 metres and more in diameter, which are difficult to transport. The plant will be used for the first time in Romania, reducing the project’s logistic costs to a minimum and therefore increasing the company’s competitiveness.With 46 years of experience in the industry, the company has become specialized in the manufacture of glass-reinforced plastic products made of CTP, including pipes, tanks, pipe fittings, ducts and chimneys. Seventy-five percent of the products are exported to foreign markets. Because Aşut operates on a project-by-project basis, it can adapt its products to each one, vastly expanding its product range capability.At the top in fittings manufacturingAşut is a major glass fibre manufacturer in Turkey and ranks among the world’s leading fitting manufacturers in terms of quality. The company uses high-quality raw materials to ensure the quality of its products.
Aşut has launched a long-term project that started with a partnership, involving investment in South Africa. The company makes no concession to its corporate mission and quality policy over the long run, so its products stand as symbols for quality – particularly in the Middle East, Europe and Africa. In order to meet the existing demand, it plans to increase its production volume through partnerships and investments.The company recently moved to a new 40,000 m² plant, including 10,000 m² of indoor area, at Mersin, Turkey. With this new plant, Aşut has enlarged its range of products and launched an international business.The company holds the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certificates, and its products comply with international standards. All the products Aşut manufactures are subject to strength, mechanical and vibrational tests in a virtual platform using ANSYS software. The company conducts R&D studies and surveys to manufacture even higher-quality products.More information:www.asutfiberglass.com
