We became the guest of Kadir Yilmaz, the purchasing manager of Ankara-based Metehan Scaffolding and Formwork Systems, which has become prominent especially with its sales and service activities on plywood and formwork systems. We came together at the Central warehouses in Yenimahalle. We met once with Kadir Bey, albeit briefly. Thank you very much. Before we walked in, we traveled with Kadir Bey only in some of the huge stockpiles they had. The size and stock variety of the area was enormous. After a short walk, we went to his office. We encountered a dizzying level of work intensity. Kadir Beys are managing Metehan İskele as 3 brothers. However, Kadir Bey is the most active in the business. When this is the case, the time is very valuable. For a while, I did not think about how to conduct the interview in this tempo. Shortly after Allah, Kadir Bey closed his door and instructed the secretariat that he should never be disturbed and said, "Let's get started." We started chatting with the arrival of our bitter coffees.
Hello Mr. Kadir,
First of all, thank you for your interest.
As Metehan Iskele, we are getting your attention on scaffolding formwork systems as an important distribution
power especiallyin plywood product group. All from Ankara, Turkey Turkey, you realize that the midpoint of the
first hand and second hand plywood formwork systems and distribution and rental of scaffolding.
If I ask about the principles and stance of your company. How would you answer? Nice question. Let me
try to give a good answer. I underline Metehan Scaffolding and Formwork Systems;
"I can say that it is one of the exemplary companies with its honest and safe business approach,
high and continuous quality approach." We have never compromised on quality goods and services.
We have an instant return structure in the slightest product defect that I can assure you that a
service defect is not up to now and thankfully with this reference. You state that the issue of trust
comes first. Well if I ask you; Why should I choose to work with Metehan İskele? What would you say to
me in summary? I would like to answer this question with 4 sentences and marketing jargon; Do you
want to have a chance to evaluate rental or purchase options in building materials? Do you want to
find both zero and second hand of a product together? In Turkey ahead of all brands available from the
same place and the instant price alternative and you want the most powerful of the payment facilities
offered to you? Do you want to sell your used items safely? Then you have one address; Metehan Scaffolding
and Formwork Systems We buy your second hand construction materials on construction sites by wholesale cash
payment or use a swap with a new one. "We keep many plywood brands in our portfolio continuously and with large stocks."
As we know, many on imported plywood product group and you hosting your site and you are deploying domestic brand throughout
Turkey. In particular, your Southeast activity attracts a lot of attention. Can we get information about these? We do not serve
our customers by adhering to a single brand or product in line with our structure and volume. We keep many plywood brands in
our portfolio continuously and with large stocks. We have a strong distribution and portfolio in the southeastern and eastern
Anatolian regions, this is true. When we examine these regions closely, especially Russian brands - Sveza and Syply are some more ahead
- are preferred. It is not known, but we supply plywood to many leading companies in these regions. Do you have criteria when determining
the products you will sell? The most important criteria for us to prefer the sale of a product or a brand are the quality, continuity and
the strength and character of the firm that stands behind it. Of course, the price comes after. "Especially in the last 6 months, domestic
producers have not been able to adequately respond to needs." plywood and plywood production in Turkey, producers and imports What are
your thoughts about the s? How do you assess the future of Turkey in this product group? Turkey domestic production of plywood-plywood
market structure evolving with each passing day, we see it visually. Which we also support. However, it is necessary to open a special
bracket for "some producers" of our country. We have friends that we meet permanently in the sector and whom we consulted for the market.
This is one of the issues we have been an idea of in recent years; In order to prevent the export of national capital by purchasing goods
from domestic plywood manufacturers, we have started to suffer from this situation in the last 1 year. Especially in the last 6 months,
domestic producers have not been able to adequately respond to the needs. All domestic producers speak the same word "material does not grow"
- "there is density".
