Successful implementation of a business idea.
Turkey is a sea-faring nation with a millennium of shipbuilding behind it. In a nondescript industrial building, typical of the more prosperous areas of Istanbul, innovative products have been created for the past five years: «Turbotsan » has been building boats made entirely from plastic. The original idea came to Burcin Yaslan, the owner of «Turbotsan», thanks to his exposure to inflatable Zodiac boats. He wanted his boat design to be sturdier than the German originals. The question, however, was which tools to use to weld the plastic and how could the critical weld quality be achieved? He who seeks shall find: Burcin Yaslan came across Tokgöz-Makina, and subsequently discovered the perfect tools for his application from Leister, which he could use to turn his dreams into reality. Leister sales partner for Turkey, Mahzar Tokgöz, carried out welding trials with Burcin Yaslan and introduced him to Leister’s innovative extrusion welding technology. Following this introduction to Leister, the first boat was successfully fabricated and floated.
