A Sensitive Company to Human Health and Environment: Tekno Metal Coating
We asked our interviewing questions to Mertkan ZABCI who said “In all stages of our production, the inspection and quality control system is used. With our technical team who has professionalized in its branch and equipped laboratory, we follow the quality and offer our customers”.
Could you give information about the structuring and activities of your company?
Tekno Metal Kaplama San. Tic. A.Ş. is a dynamic company, operating within the body of the Tecde Group, proceeding rapidly in the manner of being corporate.
As Tekno Metal Kaplama, we were established in partnership with Çetin Bolt in 2004 in the İkitelli OIS for performing Electrolytic Zinc Coating. Over the years, upon the development and diversification of coating, in 2017, we moved to our plant in Hadımköy where we are at the moment. We offer services of preparation of PLC operated robotic surface and electrolytic acid zinc coating and electrolytic alkali zinc coating with our fully automatic zinc coating facilities. Besides, there is a zinc-nickel coating from alloyed coatings providing high corrosion resistance within the bod of our fully automatic alkali zinc coating line.
The daily production capacity of our company is 75 tons and we work in 6 days of the week.
With the Magni Zinc Lamella coating facility which we put in use at the beginning of this year, our company continues its development and growth.
With which product groups do you ensure your brand recognition?
We have been offering service with electrolytic acid zinc coating and electrolytic alkali zinc coating that we apply to fasteners for 14 years.
We have been considered one of the important companies in the industry by including the Magni zinc lamella coating which provides resistance to the salt test exceeding 1.000 hours, also preferred by the TESLA Company.
What do you want to say about the quality policy and sustainability approach of your brand?
As Tekno Metal Coating, in all stages of our production, the inspection and quality control system is used. With our technical team who has professionalized in its branch and equipped laboratory, we follow the quality and offer our customers.
Tekno Metal Coating owns the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System certificate. Besides, our company has applied for the IATF 16949:2016 Automotive Quality Management System certificate which is required in the automotive industry in particular. Regarding this, it will have the other of the most important elements of quality in production within a short time. Also, our company performs Cr+3 coating which is sensitive to human health and environment in conformity with ROHS criteria (WEE).
What are your competitive advantages to guarantee the success of your products?
Our organic bond with Çetin Bolt which is one of the leaders of the fasteners industry is our biggest advantage. Making 80% of our production for the Tecde Group companies both relieves us financially in tough market conditions and necessitates us conforming with the developing technology and offering the ultimate standardized quality.
Which criteria do you prioritize when creating an investment plan?
Primarily, we prioritize the yields of technology and the demands of the industry. Our Magni zinc lamella coating and fully automatic zinc-nickel coating facility investments made this year are an example for this.
Which fairs do you plan to attend/did you attend at home and abroad?
We plan to attend the Industrial Coating Technologies Fair in 2019, the Fastener and Fixing Technologies Fair in 2020 within the country and the Magni Anti-Corrosion Coatings – Fastener Fair abroad.
