Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş., founded in 1988, entered into the market within its first years in the industry by developing high quality products in the fields of concrete admixtures, ready-mixed mortars and water insulation materials needed by the construction materials industry. The company achieved a significantly rapid growth thanks to the demand generated with efficient sales and marketing systems. Betek went in search of new markets with the experience and power it gained in the field of construction and added construction paints to its product range.
In 1993, Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş. took a step forward into the field of construction paints in a technological cooperation with Caparol, the top paint brand of Europe. The partnership of the two companies has been a milestone for both Betek and the Turkish Paint Industry while the technological richness of Europe regarding the paint industry has been moved to Turkey under the brand name of Filli Boya. Betek A.Ş., the first Turkish paint company which succeeded in producing with a European partner, has also provided the first foreign capital inflow for the paint industry.
Acquiring the identity of a “pioneering and innovative brand with high quality production” by utilizing the latest production technologies and offering the products which directed consumer demands and made a breakthrough in the paint industry, Betek has exemplarily become the strongest company in the paint industry within the shortest time and succeeded in taking the lead in the paint industry by 2001. Betek made sustainable investments by considering the importance of brand investment while taking the lead in industry and created the Filli Boya brand, which has won the hearts of our consumers. Betek, with its more than one thousand employees and nearly 3000 sales points, has left its mark on the industry and succeeded in becoming one of the most important industrial companies of Turkey, not only the paint industry.
The year 2003 was a benchmark within the development process of Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş. On this date, Betek started its activities in the field of thermal insulation and took the leadership in this industry with its "insulation" activities which it regards as a social responsibility project for the future of our country. Betek A.Ş. maintains its leadership in Turkey in the field of insulation as well as in the paint industry with the first integrated facility of our country having 380 thousand tonnes of paint, 240 thousand tonnes of dry mortar and 770 thousand 3 EPS thermal insulation plate manufacturing capacity on a 152 thousand m2 area in Gebze where all main components of paint and thermal insulation systems are manufactured.
Adopting the criteria of environmental protection and environmental health considered substantially by the EU, which Turkey has been advancing to be a member of, Betek Boya ve Kimya Sanayi A.Ş. took the first step in this regard in 1993 and has been managing its manufacturing and R&D technology processes in this direction considering the Paint Standards of EU. Strengthening its power every year with growth rates that exceed its competitors and the industry, Betek has opened the RMI Scientific Research Center which is ready to make a huge contribution to our development in the fields of paint and thermal insulation as well the industry in November,007.
Betek's mission is to carry the success it gained within the company across the national borders and it has been manufacturing 26 thousand tonnes of paint at the facility built on an area of 11 thousand m2 in Egypt. With this manufacturing facility, it exports not only to Egypt, but also tens of countries spread across a wide geography.
Lastly, on the purpose of keeping up with the increasing awareness and requirements of our country in terms of insulation, annually 150 thousand tonnes of thermal insulation plaster, adhesive and top coatings as well as 385 thousand m3 EPS thermal insulation plates will be manufactured in our Kayseri Manufacturing Facility built on an open space of 104 thousand m2. With the strength gained from this modern facility, Betek will support our country to look to the future with confidence, reduce our external dependency and continue to serve our People, Construction Industry, Country and World.
