Turkey’s leading steel cable producer Çelik Halat celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. The first R&D center in the Turkish steel wire and cable sector, Çelik Halat contributes to the Turkish economy by exporting its value-added products, which directly result from its R&D investment, to 45 countries across the globe.
Çelik Halat ve Tel Sanayii A.Ş., one of the leading specialized players in its sector, was founded in 1962 to supply the high-carbon steel wire and meet the cable demand in Turkey. Today, the company’s world-class products predominantly aim at export markets and are becoming increasingly popular in industrialized countries across the globe. After initially producing approximately 4,500 tons of single and multi-strand wire rope, galvanized wire and spring wire, Çelik Halat has responded to evolving market conditions and expanded its product range with the addition of pre-stressed concrete strands. The company is expected to maintain its growth trend in coming years due to new investments already in the project phase. A wide range of sectors—from automotive to household appliances, mining, forestry, agriculture and construction—employ its wire rope, galvanized wire, industrial spring wire and patented wire products.
Among the company’s products, steel wire rope holds a special significance, so much so that the company is actually named after that particular product. The high quality and performance of its steel wire rope earned Çelik Halat its reputation as a popular and reliable brand outside Turkey. Today, Çelik Halat exports products to 45 countries across the globe, primarily in Northern America and Europe.
Long certified with the TSE EN ISO 9001 Quality Management System Standard, Çelik Halat also holds Lloyd’s Register quality system certification and the API monogram license from the American Petroleum Institute. The company’s course of steady growth continues with its new products and its customer-focused business approach. www.celikhalat.com.tr
