Turcont’s roots lie to the year of 1973. The founder, Mr. Selami Yildirim, started his career in this industry in 1973 as a welder. After spending 7 years in Turkey, in 1980, he moved to Germany for working as welding foreman in a German company called Alois Lauer Stahl- Und Rohrleitungsbau GmbH.
He spent 6 years abroad, gained German engineering & production vision and expertise in the sector.
In 1986, Mr. Selami Yildirim came back to Turkey in order to establish a company with his brother. Until 2002, he worked with his brother as a company associate. In 2002, he decided to establish his own company named Kontek Hydraulics with only 3 employees in Karatay district of Konya.
Kontek Hydraulics served its clients in hydraulics pump sector as subcontractor by manufacturing spare parts of gear pumps, piston pumps, gearboxes, reducers and coupling parts etc.
Mr. Fatih Yildirim, who is middle son of Mr. Selami Yildirim, joined the company after he graduated from the university in 2004. He has Bachelor degree in Business Administration & Management from Istanbul University. At the beginning, Mr. Selami, did not allow his son to start at the company as a boss’ kid. He sent Mr. Fatih to work and learn the industry in different factories and foundries in Konya. Mr. Fatih gained experience in production and other business processes until 2007. After 2007, Mr. Fatih finally joined Kontek Hydraulics as sales and marketing specialist.
In 2011, Mr. Selami Yildirim left Managing Director position to his son, Mr. Fatih Yildirim, due to some financial difficulties the company had. The company had to move the smaller facilities with around 300 sqm. Until 2015, the company worked for domestic clients only in order to get rid of financial problems. Kontek Hydraulics under the management of Mr. Fatih Yildirim, proved itself with its quality works in domestic market, gained people’s trust again and found new opportunities to move forward by making new investments.
In 2015, first, the company moved to a bigger facility around 1.000 sqm. 2 CNC machining center and lathe investments were made and added to machine park.
