How was the situation of your company and sector in 2015? Could you kindly tell us your investments if you have?
2015 was generally nice. Our factory produced full capacity. But unfortunately profit rate was so low. That is to say, we worked but did not earn money. We researched the reason of it and understood that customer wants high quality and ready for paying the differences of quality.
When we pursue cheap fason sewing, our competitors have already recovered their quality and technology. For this reason we decided to renovate our equipments. We recovered our ironing system. We purchased computer technology ironing presses.

Yes, I can say that we are so pleased with MALKAN. Because, MALKAN produce pressing machine according to our jackets form. Presses are so equipped. They have all programs, software and equipments which they need. Malkans team is so effective and companionable. They are with us whenever we need them. Qualities of materials are so good.

I would like to say that we purchased so effective ironing presses from Malkan.
