Hidromek expanding production capacity at Ankara facility
Hidromek is expanding production capacity in Turkey
Turkish construction equipment manufacturer Hidromek is expanding the capacity of its production facilities at its headquarters in Ankara. This follows on from developments to its factor in Izmir, which makes its backhoe loaders, as well as its assembly facility in Thailand.
The company has bought a site of 1 million m2 close to its existing facility, located in an industrial zone close to Turkish capital Ankara. The factory expansion forms part of Hidromek’s strategy to develop its profile in the global construction equipment market. This follows on from moves to develop its sales and the dealer network. The company is continuing its investments in new premises and production facilities. This latest factory expansion with new premises and production facilities will be dedicated to manufacturing of its HMK excavator range. The new plant will allow a doubling of its current capacity. Construction started in 2015 and the new plant is due to be operational in 2016.
