Metallurgy and castings have a deep rooted history in Turkey. The very first metal was smelted in Anatolia nearly 9000 years ago to make raw copper beads, later to alloy it with arsenic, tin or zinc to produce warfare, household or personel goods. This later progressed into the making of first wrought iron.

This heritage was later on passed over to the future citizens of these lands, namely Romans, Byzantians, Selcukians and the Ottomans.

Starting from 1950’s, the private capital began to invest in foundries establishing modern facilities by which today the Turkish foundry industry can compete worldwide.

Towards the end of the last century, Turkey has became a major supplier of foundry products for Europe.
