These fabrics are the main raw material of both overalls and masks during the epidemic period.
We got the information from our company. We previously opened factories of different companies operating in the nonwoven sector. Turkey has a very important potential in this sense, the capacity is really high. It has become an important player in the nonwoven industry both in its region and in the international arena.
Our Bayteks company also manufactures in an area that requires very sensitive production, such as operating rooms that we call medical textiles. We visited the production facilities. Medical textile production is carried out, just like a pharmaceutical factory. The fact that there are productions that we can call medium high technology in Kilis makes us very pleased. In the upcoming period, we will both attract investments to Kilis and do our best as the Ministry of Industry and Technology to bring high-tech productions.
