The history of EGESAN Company dates back to the year 1941 when our founder İlhan Egeli took his first step into the hardware business with his father, Nuri Egeli, in İstanbul Karaköy at the age of 14. Growing up in the abrasives market, the young Egeli developed an ambition to become a manufacturer in his homeland and serve to the rapidly growing Turkish manufacturing industry. It will take more than 30 years of hard work and expertise for the young Egeli to fulfill his ideal.
In 1973 Mr. Egeli founded EGESAN Grinding Wheels Co. to serve the abrasive needs of the leading manufacturing industries, with a wide range of product solutions. Since then, metal working and welding, construction, marine, automotive and aftermarket, core metal industries have been our primary areas of service.
10 years later Mr. Egeli established EGELİ Coated Abrasives Co., pioneering the local manufacturing of coated abrasives in Turkey in a modern production plant. Hence EGESAN Company became the first company in Turkey offering a wide range of abrasive solutions and serving numerous industries.
In August 2015 the company management has experienced a restructuring which brought about a big change in the company’s top management roles. Today EGESAN is managed by a group of professionals including executives from 2nd and 3rd generation Egeli family members.
Today EGESAN is operating with 150 personnel in two distinct manufacturing plants in Çerkezköy Industrial are 100km west of İstanbul with a large range of products in bonded and coated abrasives. The Company Headquarters are located in downtown İstanbul; hosting finance, purchasing, sales and marketing departments.
