As Turkey’s only integrated aluminum plant capable of aluminum from ore as well as handling production from mining to final product, Eti Alüminyum A.Ş. contributes significantly to the regional and national economy. Eti Alüminyum A.Ş., the only primary aluminum producer in Turkey, was taken over by Cengiz Holding in 2005 within the scope of privatization. The plant is still being renovated and has been almost rebuilt from scratch with an investment of USD 580 million since privatization. After almost facing closure during the privatization period, Eti Alüminyum A.Ş. today provides 10% of Turkey’s aluminum at its Konya Seydişehir facilities.
