The Turkish Science, Industry and Technology Ministry has awarded Best R&D Center Of The Year at the Private Sector R&D Centres Summit and Exhibition to Kordsa Global. The company also was ranked the top R&D center in the textile category for the third time.

Kordsa Global CEO, Cenk Alper, said, “Our R&D efforts are backed up by our 42-year history. The R&D Center collaborates with universities both in Turkey and abroad to maintain its technology leadership. Technology licensing is one of our main subjects since our ‘open innovation’ concept is the baseline for our R&D approach. Today, our opponents are willing to construct their products using Kordsa Global technology.

“These days, we are working on a more economic business model. We will export technology not only to our own partners but also to our competitors. We believe this to be an important step for Kordsa and Turkey.”

CTO İbrahim Yıldırım said, “Kordsa Global R&D Center’s priority is efficiency. Ranking the first R&D Center among many is an indication of our consistent and stable operations. The center employs 78 brilliant minds, which helps develop our technology across Turkey and throughout the world.”
