Common Use Facility Projects

We establish ateliers and facilities with technical infrastructure and equipment to be utilized by businesses in the manufacturing industry, which could not have these opportunities by their own means.

Big Partnership of Small Industrials Project

The common use facility built under this project holds furniture and machinery workshops, metal analysis laboratory and auto troubleshooting system. Auto-troubleshooting system is also structured and offered as a mobile unit.

With the project the shortcomings in the machinery parks owned by small-scale tradesmen are remedied through the machinery provided at the common use facility. Business owners may bring their raw material and use a series of different machines in line with their needs, and when the cutting process is over, they complete manufacturing and assembly of the product at their workshop. There is also a painting unit with four different machines at the workshop.

Furthermore, through the training centre opened within the centre 25 people can simultaneously receive computerised technical training. The centre also offers business development consultancy and support to SMEs, 10 of which are supported in a longer term as part of the role model programme.

To ensure the sustainability of the shared facility, the needs of the potential beneficiaries are to be better met. For this, diagnostic analyses with 50 small businesses have been carried out. Manuals on business plan development and provision of services are drafted in the light of the data acquired through this analysis. Manuals covering various topics from marketing to pricing, human resources planning and costs are developed for every service unit including workshops, laboratories, auto troubleshooting systems and training centre.

Strengthening the Infrastructure for Furniture Production Project (MOBITEK)

The Project fills in the gap in the production support and business development services, which are required by SMEs to transform their very own unique designs into products. The Project aims at enhancing competitiveness, productivity, marketing skills and product development capacity of SMEs, and it targets offering services to over 1500 SMEs situated in Kayseri, operating at various stages of the furniture manufacturing sector.

To respond to the high demand for solid wood furniture, SMEs of the region do need several training sessions and guidance on many topics, which include marketing and foreign trade.

Improvement of the Shared Industrial Infrastructure of the Pistachio Processing Sector Project

Under the project, a shared processing facility of 6,500 square meters is established to reflect the pistachio potential of Siirt on the economy, and pistachio producers in the region, both wholesalers and retailers, are expected to benefit from this facility directly or indirectly. Through this installation, it is aimed to improve processing capacity and technology, product variety, marketing opportunities by enhancing the quality and increasing the local amount of processed pistachios. The facility will be capable of processing both raw and dried pistachios.

There are storage units, social areas and a training area in addition to the production lines in the facility. Producers may get the pistachios back after processing, or they may prefer to put their processed pistachios directly on the market, with a single brand and unique label.

Through a series of marketing plans and activities Siirt's pistachio brand highlighting the unique features of its variety is established. All local pistachio producers are invited to utilise this new brand.

Production quality is increased when pistachios are processed with state of the art machinery, and aflatoxin formation is prevented when correct processing and storage conditions are secured. Pistachios go through cleaning, drying, peeling, roasting and salting processes and later, through physical, chemical and microbiological analyses; and then, they are packaged in line with the expectations of domestic and international markets.

As well as improving capacities and skills of managers and employees of the Centre through a variety of courses, an SME training programme is also offered on marketing, sales, production, storage techniques and quality, food safety, environment, occupational safety, operation, institutionalisation and foreign trade.

Bovine Leather Processing in Uşak

Leather industry is one of the economical values, influencing   the economy of Uşak province. On the other hand, for the integration of the sector to the regional and international value chain, transformation to modern production methods is a necessity, since small cattle leather cannot be processed year-round and its market value is relatively low.

Whereas bovine leather has a wider market. Therefore focusing on bovine leather processing will not only strengthen the employment conditions in Uşak, but it will also increase the market share of the province. In brief, the main purpose of the Project is to contribute to the social-economic development of Uşak province by improving the competitiveness of SMEs operated in the leather sector.

As a beneficiary, Uşak Leather (Combined) Organized Industrial Zone (OIZ), has started works for the establishment of a common use facility, covering the cost of the construction from its own budget.  The facility will provide with machines and equipments that SMEs cannot afford to buy. These machines and equipments which are suitable for bovine leather processing will only be used for the production of semi products.

Within the scope of the project, a cluster will also be established for the stakeholders of the  leather sector. This cluster will among others facilitate the participation in both national and international networks.
