In recent years the company has been pleased to be able to regularly record a number of orders from Turkey. Turkish wire rope manufacturers in particular have purchased machinery and equipment from SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH in Magdeburg. In Turkish wire rope works there are now more than twenty SKET stranding machines including tubular high-speed stranding machines, cage-type stranding machines and double-twist bunching machines producing wire rope in a variety of constructions. The reputation which SKET machines enjoy in Turkey and which is enhanced on a daily basis has recently led to another order being placed with SKET.
Messrs Has Celik in Kayseri, a long time customer, has placed an order for yet more stranding machines in Magdeburg. In the third and fourth quarters of this year a total of eight high-speed tubular stranding machines of various sizes and machine configurations will be supplied by SKET to Kayseri. The contract has a value of in excess of three million Euros.
And stranding machines produced by SKET are now also working in Turkish cable works. A tandem tubular stranding machine type SRW 630 has recently been supplied.
Because of the importance of the Turkish market to SKET, SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH will be participating this year in the Istanbul Wire Fair – TEL Fair 2015 – from the 26.03.2015 to the 28.03.2015 where we shall be exhibiting on our own stand. We particularly look forward to welcoming not only our Turkish customers but also customers from other countries at this, for us new, exhibition.
