Being quite near to raw material resources with its area of 413 decares and 220 employees, Sönmez Çimento is the first cement factory of Turkey which was permitted to be built in Free Zones. Besides, the factory being only 4.5 km far from the port offers the best service to its customers by availing that advantage. Sönmez Çimento will further fortify its competitive advantage with the port project estimated to be completed in early 2016.
Target markets of Sönmez Çimento consist of all world’s market especially that of North Africa, West Africa and South America.
