Elkem Foundry attended biannual ANKIROS

Foundry ankrios 2016

The exhibition was held between September 29 – October 1, 2016 in Istanbul. From Elkem, David Wilkinson and Oddvar Knustad participated.

In co-operation with our distributor for the Turkish market, Ekspert Mumessellik Ltd, we had the opportunity to exhibit our products and services and have technical discussions with our customers.

During the three days, there were more than 16,000 participants from 77 countries. However, for us the main focus during the exhibition was the Turkish iron foundry market.

The Turkish foundry industry has become 10th in the world, and moved up to 2nd in Europe.

In recent years, there have been increasing demands and investments in the industry which has resulted in higher demand for our products with ongoing sales growth.

Elkem is already well known in the Turkish foundry industry as a supplier of the highest quality products and services, and we are also regarded as an innovative partner.

There was a lot of interest shown in our “Automated Tundish Ladle” treatment process and several follow-up visits have been arranged at the customer’s request.

Several customers are considering production of solution strengthened ferritic ductile iron (SSF) which is a new material for them, so they were very appreciative of the advice that Elkem can provide based on our experience and R&D work.

With the excellent support of Ekspert Mumessellik Ltd, this was a successful exhibition for Elkem and we look forward to continued progress in this market.
