NEWS AND MARKETS What role does Turkey play for your company in drive technology and engineering? Turkey is an important site for us as a supplier of drive and automation solutions. Therefore, we have had a dedicated branch there since 1999. Even though the country had to face economic and political challenges in the last years, it is still able to offer a relatively stable economic situation. Especially the area of engineering is growing continually. We think that the country came out of the global economic crisis relatively well as well. Our branch in Turkey is also not only a contact for Turkish companies, but also for customers and potential customers in adjacent countries, serving the entire region beyond country borders. In addition to the delivery and integration of our components, Turkey and the surrounding region also have a demand for our services. Turkey imports more machines than it exports, and the region is an important sales market for many of our customers. Of course we need to be on site there. Norbert Scholz, managing director sales and technology, Baumüller Nürnberg GmbH, Nuremberg, Germany Turkey has long played an important role for us. Already in 1999 we expanded our entrepreneurial commitment to Turkey. For more than one year, we have now been represented in the country with a separate company. I believe that this was a good step that was important to us. With its stable political situation and location, Turkey is an attractive growth market with good future perspectives. Especially in the area of automation – one of our important business fields – Turkey offers diverse potentials. As the gate to the Middle East, the country is also the ideal starting point for further business in this region. A third important point in times of lack of specialists is the good labour market situation with qualified workers in Turkey. 30 of them are already active for us in Turkey. Frank Schlüter, Senior Business Development Manager, Lenze SE, Aerzen, Germany Turkey has been subject to a change from domestic market production towards export-oriented production in the last ten years. Turkish machines are in great demand in the adjacent countries, as well as on the Russian and African markets, due to their cost-efficient local production costs and good quality. The growth was above-average and led to a concurrent increase of the demand to the Turkish machine manufacturers and thus their demand for high-technology components – which is a great opportunity for our high-quality products. We have made our sales ready and offer a competent contact for all the important regions and applications. We expect that the country will in future be among our top 15 export markets. The demand for mobile and industrial applications is relatively balanced. We supply manufacturers of tool machines, presses and bending machines, we well as thus for municipal vehicles, construction machines and other vehicle manufactures. Turkey is also interesting because of its geographic location as the gate to Asia, the Turkic states and because of its outstanding political relationships with Russia and the other GUS states.

Unaffected by current economic fluctuations, Turkey is an extremely appealing market for machine manufacturers and suppliers. Across Europe, this industry sector already is in 6 th place. Machinery production in Turkish industry has more than doubled over the past 10 years. Due to the high need for construction and building materials machinery as well as the expansion of production capacities in the automotive, electrical and plastics industries, machinery and plant production are among the most dynamic industry sectors in Turkey. Increasingly, foreign markets also support this industry sector. Since 2001, machinery exports have increased by almost 23 % on average per year and are valued at more than $ 13 bn today. Bosch Rexroth is closely linked to Turkish industry through local production capacities and develops drive and control solutions tailored to regional requirements.
