Borusan Mannesmann Boru

  • The leader in Turkey with a 25% market share and one of the leading steel pipe manufacturers in Europe
  • Partnership with the leading industrial company Salzgitter Mannesmann GmbH
  • The pioneer and leading company in Turkey in the special pipes market
  • Profitable growth strategy in high value added market segments
  • Increasing competitive strength in foreign markets by boosting sales in overseas export markets
  • The year 2011 was a record one for the Company in terms of pretax profits earned.
  • Record increases were achieved in the export sales volume and turnover of first quality goods.
  • The largest investment in Company history was completed.
  • An increase in petroleum and natural gas sector related customer and market penetration rates was achieved primarily in U.S. markets, as well as other regions.
  • The continued pipe sales to the American OCTG market was taken to a new level as a consequence of the strategic partnership established with Salzgitter.
  • New and important projects were secured in the North African and Middle Eastern natural gas line pipe sectors.
  • A striking performance and major success was manifested in terms of new product development and sales during 2011. Roughly 14% of the total revenues generated originated from the sale of products developed over the past three years.
  • The website of Borusan Mannesmann Boru was awarded third place in the domestic “Golden Spider Web Awards”, also known as Turkey’s “Web Oscars”.
  • The completion of the new investment bringing the Company’s total production capacity of 250,000 tons has strengthened BMB’s position in the large diameter line pipe market. This first-class outlay was designed to be the best of its kind in the world with regards to the technology utilized, production capacity, floor plan, production flexibility, plus its strategic location on the waterfront.
  • Great emphasis was given to new product development and sales, which have proven to be vital to sustained success, with major gains being recorded.
  • The decision to maintain stock on hand in the European market for ‘instant delivery’ was made in 2011. By retaining readily available stock and providing instantaneous delivery to customers we were able to gain an advantage in terms of the truck based sales and payment terms. Hence, during times when market conditions were stagnant and prices were falling we still had the opportunity to continue selling and increase profit margins.
  • In December our plant in Halkalı qualified for the ISO/TS 16949 Automotive Sector Quality Management Systems Certification.
  • Within the framework of the environmental policy that adheres to both national and international regulations a comprehensive Environmental Management System was established back in 2002 and the ISO 14001 certification was received.
  • Projects designed to minimize our ecological footprint were brought online. Today, all research and development initiatives are conducted with the clean production approach.
