The fact that there are many strong manufacturers in the production of raw materials used in the production of the fasteners and a strong sub-industry in mold production contribute to the improvement and service quality of the sector. Domestically manufactured heat treatment machines, coating plants, washing machines, threading machines, sorting machines serve Turkey’s fasteners industry.
Turkey’s fasteners market has a size of around 900,000 tons. This corresponds to about 1.6 million Euros in value. 100,000 tons of this capacity is provided by imports and fastener manufacturers of Turkey meet 800,000 tons of it.
