Delcam launches new Turkish subsidiary during Ministerial visit
Delcam has launched a new subsidiary in Turkey, Delcam Turkiye, to help further increase the growth rate for the company’s CADCAM business in the country.
- (1888PressRelease) April 27, 2012 - The launch coincided with a visit to Istanbul by Delcam Chief Executive, Clive Martell, as part of a UK trade mission led by UK Trade and Investment Minister, Lord Green, and John Cridland, Director-General of the CBI.
Delcam Turkiye will be based in Istanbul and will be staffed by local experts in CADCAM technology. They will support Delcam’s existing resellers in Turkey and help to strengthen the company’s profile in the country.
"We enjoyed our most successful year so far in Turkey during 2011, with sales increasing by over 20%,” claimed Mr. Martell. "All the indications show that manufacturing in Turkey will continue to grow strongly over the coming years so we felt it was the right time to add a direct subsidiary. This will help to maximise our ability to take advantage of the many opportunities for our software in the country.”
The trade mission, which took place on 26th and 27th April, was the first one of its kind, focusing solely on mid-sized businesses keen to increase their exports. The mission sought to build links between UK and Turkish firms, and boost trade and investment between the two countries. Around 30 mid-sized UK businesses took part in the visit, where they met key figures from the Turkish Government and business community.
