The cooperation agreement between Tosyalı Holding, the leading Turkish private sector producer of flat steel and steel piping, and Toyo Kohan, a leading company in steel products produced with advanced technology of Japan and the world, was signed in February 2012.

Tosyalı-Toyo Çelik A.Ş. is Turkey’s first advanced technology and high added-value flat steel producer, and its foundations were laid in January 2015 as a result of about three years of preparation work.

The facility was established in a space of 250,000 square meters in the Osmaniye Organized Zone with a total investment cost of $650 million, and it began trial production in December 2016 and immediately after pasted to serial production.

A significant portion of the products imported with this investment, which aims to remove Turkey’s external dependence in advance-technology steel products, is met domestically and contributes to the reduction of the current deficit. 

Tin, galvanized sheet, painted sheet, cold rolled sheet, and acid-oil roll production is completed at the facilities where about 800 people work with a rolling capacity of 1.2 million tons. The products used in a wide array from the packaging industry to electrical home appliances, from information products to the construction sector, from appliances to automotive don’t meet the needs of just Turkey but of a wide geography stretching from Europe to the Caucasus and from the Middle East to North Africa.
