Turkey: NGK on the Bosporus
NGK already had a presence in Turkey for years through importers. In 2009 the company then founded its own Turkish office. It lies in Istanbul in the Levent district.
For NGK, Turkey represents an important key market. The population has grown significantly since the 1980s. More than 76,6 million people live there and the motorisation rate is continually growing. In addition, many automobile manufacturers are represented by their own production here.

The surface area of Turkey is 783,562 km². The average age is 27 years old and thus 15 years less than Germany's. For this reason, the motorisation rate is still relatively low.
The road network is extensive and has a total length of over 413,000 km. The motorway network, which is currently only about 1,800 km long should develop further in the coming years. The inland goods transport and passenger transportation take place almost exclusively on the roads.
