Because we believe that Turkish society deserves the best of everything, we identify and implement corporate responsibility projects that will contribute to the social welfare of our society.
As societies can only develop with solid education, we furnish and refurbish schools. We thus improve the physical environment in schools that instruct students from diverse social groups, which has a great impact not only in the transmission of knowledge in a classroom setting, but also in the creation of happy social atmospheres conducive to learning.
Moreover, we contributed to extracurricular activities within an academic setting by refurbishing the chambers of Istanbul Technical University’s Electronics Engineering Club.
We care about keeping our employee turnover low. We show appreciation to our employers with an average eight-year-long employment term and by providing training programs.
We contribute to the local economy with Bürosit Supplier Industry Development Program. We offer know-how assistance to our suppliers in their accreditation processes and in technology and method adaptation, such as Lean Production.
As a value added brand from Turkey, we export our products to 35 countries in four continents. We export 35% of our production with our reseller network within 11 countries outside Turkey. We play an active role in the professional organizations to which we belong such as Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry, OMSIAD, DOSAB, Istanbul Exporters’ Association, KALDER, KOSGEB and TOBB. As a member of EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management), we continue to evaluate and improve our own performance.
