The HOPPECKE Batterien GmbH & Co. KG and Erikoğlu Emaye Bakır Tel San. A. Ş. announced an exclusive partnership at CeMAT Eurasia.

In March 2019, the intralogistics industry met in Istanbul at CeMAT Euroasia to find out about new products and developments in the market. For HOPPECKE and Erikoğlu Holding, the fair was the ideal platform for announcing the exclusive partnership between the traditional companies, introducing themselves to the industry and having initial discussions with potential customers.

In future, HOPPECKE and Erikoğlu Holding will work together exclusively in Turkey and offer customers the HOPPECKE product portfolio of the Motive division. Both family-owned companies presented themselves at CeMAT together at a joint stand.

After this successful trade fair appearance, the evaluation of the discussions with potential Turkish end customers is in full swing. The first orders have already been received. At the same time, our partner is busy making organisational preparations so that things can really get going soon. The area for a proper storage of the cells and a place for the local assembly of the batteries with a recharging station is currently being set up. Already in November last year we welcomed employees of our new partner at a technical training in Hoppecke.

Erikoğlu Holding was founded in 1932 in Dinizli by Ahmet Nuri Erikoğlu and is today one of the leading and most successful companies in Turkey in the field of copper processing. In addition, it is a reliable supply chain partner for many global companies such as NASA, BOEING and TESLA.

With the strategic partnership with HOPPECKE, the company wants to open up new business areas and take advantage of the opportunities and challenges in the constantly growing energy market in Turkey together with HOPPECKE.  

Fred Gadalla, Head of Export at Hoppecke Motive Power: "We are delighted to have found a strong partner in the growth market of Turkey in Erikoğlu Holding. The broad and innovative product portfolio of HOPPECKE in combination with the strong position of Erikoğlu allows us to participate in the growth together". HOPPECKE, the expert for industrial batteries and energy systems, is the right partner for Erikoğlu Holding to serve the Turkish market. Since 1927, HOPPECKE has been supplying energy solutions "Made in Germany" for a wide variety of industries and customers. The company has set itself the vision of making electrical energy available to everyone and everywhere and is constantly working to fulfil this vision. This is also due to the partnership with the Turkish Erikoğlu Holding.

Both companies are looking forward to future cooperation and new business contacts in Turkey, which will secure the long-term success of both companies.
