Japanese engine maker Yanmar said it has opened a subsidiary in Turkey to meet anticipated demand for backup power amidst the country’s scaling up of construction investments.
“Investment in construction, including infrastructure improvements and construction of large scale housing projects, continues to grow in Turkey as the country looks towards the 100th anniversary of its founding in 2023,” Yanmar said.
“This construction rush is expected to significantly increase demand for regular use generators which can provide efficient power generation, as well as for emergency generators which can be used as backup power sources in the event of an emergency,” Yanmar said.
“Going forward, sales of regular use and emergency generators for use in newly constructed buildings, will allow the company to contribute to the construction of reliable and safe infrastructure in the region. “
The company said its Yanmar Turkey Makine AS business will “further develop business both in Turkey and surrounding regions”.
