From the day we cast our very first iron in 1992, we have been nurturing a vision of a brighter future for both our sector and our planet. We're putting all our effort into making these dreams come true and realizing our vision of a “New Iron Age”. Harnessing the power of technology, we are constantly innovating in one of the world’s oldest lines of business. In 2016, we diversified our production journey that originated with casting by incorporating machining operations. The following year, in 2017, we founded Kutes Makine, effectively distinguishing it from Kutes Döküm and its machining operations. In 2022, we released our first GRI-approved sustainability report, setting an ambitious green production goal for 2033.
THE NEW IRON AGE
In 2023, through a decree by the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, our 207,000 m2 production facilities were officially declared a special industrial zone. This momentous decision stands as a pinnacle achievement in our pursuit of the “New Iron Age”. The same year, we finalized the construction of solar energy facilities with a total capacity of 26 MWp across Kırklareli and Edirne, culminating in the establishment of Kutes Enerji.
Situated within our production facilities in Çorlu, Tekirdağ, we hold a strategic position of being 35 km from the Çorlu commercial seaport, 100 km from İstanbul Airport, and 155 km from the borders of the European Union. This favorable geographic location allows us to harness the advantages between İstanbul and the European Union.
At Kutes Döküm, we boast a melting capacity of 16 tons per hour and run two horizontal molding lines, each accommodating 120 molds, resulting in a total casting capacity of 50,000 tons. Meanwhile, at Kutes Makine, we engage in production across 16 varied CNC machining workbenches, with a capacity of 100,000 hours powered by 60% renewable energy. Our services span 9 distinct sectors, spanning from automotive to agriculture, all backed by a comprehensive array of 12 quality certifications.
Within our cutting-edge production facilities, supported by a team of over 350 colleagues, we embark on a production journey driven by the vision of pioneering the “New Iron Age”. Anchored in the heart of our business is a deep commitment to sustainability, as we proactively and significantly contribute to the fight against climate change through digital transformation and the implementation of sustainable, environmentally conscious casting practices.
We embrace solar energy systems for renewable energy sources, setting an example in the casting industry for sustainability by reducing our carbon footprint.
