Fortified by its new plant, Askaynak sets its sights on new objectives


Company Profile Company Profile an equal share joint-venture between the Eczacıbaşı Group and the Lincoln Electric Company Established in 1974, Askaynak is a joint-venture with Lincoln Electric, the world leader in the design, development and manufacturing of arc welding products, robotic welding systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment. The relationship between Askaynak and Lincoln Electric dates back to 1992, when Askaynak became the exclusive distributor in Turkey for Lincoln Electric-branded welding machinery and equipment. In 1998, this agreement was transformed into a full-fledged partnership with Lincoln Electric's acquisition of a 50 percent stake in the company. Through this partnership, Askaynak has developed valuable links with Lincoln Electric's global activities, which include manufacturing operations, joint-ventures and alliances in 21 countries, and a network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 160 countries. Askaynak's strength in the highly competitive Turkish market reflects the accurate positioning of its two main product lines: ASKAYNAK and KOBATEK. ASKAYNAK products primarily comprise stick electrodes and solid GMA and SA welding wires for the manufacturing industry, while the KOBATEK product line mainly carries welding products for protective maintenance and repair welding applications.
