Schott has been present in Turkey since 1988 and currently has around 700 employees at its two sites in Çerkezköy and Bolu.

Schott Çerkezköy has collaborated with Turkey’s most prominent white goods manufacturers for two decades.

The factory’s value-added glass solutions reach 40 million households worldwide, as they are exported to 14 different countries, mainly in Western and Central Europe.

The factory stands out among its competitors for its exemplary work in terms of safety; the site was the first to earn a safe production certificate for its occupational safety procedures at the start of the pandemic.

Mesut Tahtaci, Schott Marketing, Sales, and R&D Director, said: “For 20 years, our Çerkezköy site, which covers around 34,000m2, has been an important pillar in our global flat glass business.

"There is also a new factory being built, which will be complementing the current production in Bolu: Once it starts operating, it will increase our capacity there by 50% in the next few years."

A new factory will be starting operations in Bolu in spring 2022, which will increase the manufacturing volume at the site by 50%.
