Long-term support cements relationship

2007 Mar 03

Cement and aggregates are valuable commodities around the booming city of Ankara where construction activity can be seen in all directions. The need for raw materials combined with high transport costs has driven Turkish quarries to be ultra-efficient and productive. M&C visits a long standing Atlas Copco customer that represents the best practices of modern drilling in Turkey.

A leading example of the trend towards high quality and productivity in Turkish quarrying is the family construction business Çiftay. The company was founded in 1987, but the family’s involvement with rock excavation, and close association with Atlas Copco, goes back many more years.

Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
