As setting off its journey with the idea of chemical sector is not just consists of “detergent”, Rasyonel Kimya from İzmir developed 200 kinds of products for the needs of the industry and added 2 thousand companies to its portfolio.
Fatih Altun, an entrepreneur from Izmir, develops special ‘technical chemical’ products to detect and eliminate the problems of industrialists’ production machines on-site with the 200 types of products he has developed. Producing many products such as stain and germ remover in textile, electronic card cleaner sprays and rinsing agents for industrial dishwashers, Altun produced a product called “Graffitti” which erases the graffiti on trains for the State Railways.
As the Chairman of the Board of Rasyonel Kimya that established in Izmir Atatürk Organized Industrial Zone, Fatih Altun said that they have developed new products for new problems that are stated to them and he said: “We are providing services to 2 thousand companies including the giant companies of Izmir”. Since imported machinery are used in industry In Turkey and companies have external dependency for their care, Altun says that for different machines used in different sectors cannot be protected by standard products.
Costs are reduced
Altun says, “In order to prevent the damage to the machines bought at great prices in the industry, the effects of the chemicals must be known. If damage can be avoided, the industrialist does not have to bring parts from abroad for that machine. And so, large amount of imports are prevented. If factories that have their machine maintenance made by local companies, the costs decrease by 70 percent. ”
PUBLIC PROPERTIES GET DAMAGED
Their latest product is called “Graffitti” is for graffiti and paintings on the trains of the State Railways. Altun says; ”Young people can apply to such graffiti to express themselves. However, these writings, which are seen as art, can sometimes damage public properties. We have developed such product that can remove theses graffiti without damaging the paint under the graffiti. They were very impressed when we made this presentation.”
THE SECTOR WILL GROW FAST
While going from factory to factory with the sales team consisting of chemists, Altun says, “Unfortunately, the technical chemical industry in Turkey is experiencing the challenges of multi-source development and factory owners do not have enough knowledge about it. There may also be those who think our friends will sell detergents and they do not want to meet them. So if the industrialists introduce more professional companies in this field, the annual average of 100-150 million dollar market sector in Turkey will grow even more.”
