Message From Our Founder

Ali Karabulut

Established in 1987 by Geological Engineer (MSc) Ali Karabulut, the company has exploration and mining sites in a number of regions Turkey.  The biggest among the company’s mining sites is in the Şile district of Istanbul, where clay and white ceramic sand, the main ceramic raw materials, are produced.  Sands from these mines are washed and turned into heat-resistant foundry sand and construction sand.  We also extract gas sand that is produced during the production of these raw materials. Other exploration sites are the coal, clay, and bentonite sites in the Korgun district of Çankırı.

Our company has supplied raw materials to a lot of ceramic factories, chiefly among them the Çanakkale, Kütahya, Ege, Toprak, and Hitit Ceramic Factories. In addition to our own production, we work with subcontractors to obtain certain products. Our company is one of the few raw material producers in the ceramics industry in Turkey. As a company which possesses environmental consciousness, we have been exemplary in our environmentally-conscious mining practices with the 30,000 pine and acacia trees planted in the mines we have built, after we have levelled and handed the sites over to the Forestry Department at the end of production.
