Turkish firm to invest in Ghana

A Turkish firm, Tanka Tem Mechanic that specialises in designing water and waste water treatment plants and equipment is to explore the possibility of doing business in Africa, especially Ghana.

According to the company after exploring the European and Asian markets, it was now the turn of the African continent to benefit from the expertise of Tanka Tem Mechanic.

The Administrative Manager of the company, Mr Ekrem Dagtekin, who disclosed this to the Daily Graphic at a business exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey, said Tanka Tem Mechanic had been in business since 2004 with a vision to create a company that could solve most of the world’s most difficult environmental problems relating to water treatment, reuse of waste water, fire fighting, among other challenges.

He said through significant investments in developing water and waste water technologies and fire fighting systems, the company was able to offer state-of-the-art water and waste water treatment capabilities that could be found in a lot of applications around the world.

On the decision to come to Africa, Mr Dagtekin said, “partnership is a key driving force as we strive to establish long term relationships with our customers, engineering firms, suppliers and representatives. We value these relationships and consider them our most important assets”.

“With thousands of water and waste water systems built for customers worldwide, we have established a reputation for design, engineering and manufacturing excellence”, he added.

Mr Dagtekin was of the view that optimising the performance of treatment chemicals and equipment could dramatically minimise overall costs and maximise return on investment and provide creative solutions to help meet most stringent water quality requirements.

He was happy that the company had maintained its challenging position within the industry regardless of the economic crises, trade barriers and drastic change that swept the world, and added that “since our establishment, we have been able to complete all our contracts in accordance with acknowledged international and local codes and standards with the help of our sizeable pool of equipment and capable personnel”.
