Name of the Charitable Businessmen Removed from Faculty Signboard

Signboard of the faculty building constructed by Akman Holding in Ereğli caused a new crisis.

When the signboard of the Faculty building, which was had constructed by Charitable businessman Kemal Akman in 2005 at 3.2 million dollars in Ereğli, was changed, his son and the chairman of the board of directors Ali Akman made very strident statements.

Akman stated: we built a large 3000-person faculty building in Ereğli, but the signboard that carried my father’s name was removed. The signboard was hung when it was affiliated to Selçuk university. A short time after the school got affiliated to Necmettin Erbakan University, we saw that the signboard on which my father’s name was written was removed and instead a signboard on which Necmettin Erbakan education faculty was written was hund.

We are very sorry as the whole family. This was a charitable event made by our family. Anyway, the protocol of this was already signed. We will solve this problem by filing a lawsuit soon through our consultants, we will also carry this matter to the Turkish Grand National Assembly. Ali Akman continued: this event is as important as the Gezi Park events. There is a significant immorality here. The name of my father who had this building constructed is removed from the building and it is hung to an irrelevant other building.

It isn’t always possible to win in China

We have written in our earlier news that those who went early to China, the new world’s giant, earned great incomes.  However, it isn’t always possible to win in China. Sometimes you need to take the risk of losing. Just like the experiences of Ali Akman, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Akman Holding, who is one of the first Turkish investors who went to China…

Akman explained his China adventure that started in 1994: “We had the Chinese people drink fruit juice for years with our brand Golden. The business was progressing very good, so we also made investment in this country. At that period we made productions with a significant profit margin and we won. In 2001 we sold our shares and got our money’s worth. Afterwards we established a new establishment with a 10 million dollar investment in Yantai state of China. We sold it in September 2011 and left China.”

But why? Ali Akman responds: “Because we were late in selling the last company and we made loss”. Akman considers that approach to foreign capital has been negative in China in the last 5 years and doesn’t deem legal securities are sufficient:

“Companies to carry out business in China, especially those in our industry, should never make purchase by paying cash money. The profit margins for those to make investment decreased. Also the risk should be analyzed very well as the legal guarantee is very less. For example, a truck full of machines was stolen from our factory. Although we proved it with cameras, we couldn’t have the police take any action”.
In short, those who want to invest in China should better see the glass half empty.

A firm based in Ereğli, exports the fruit juices it produces to around 35 countries worldwide, especially USA, Germany and Canada

Kadir Şahin, General Manager of Ersu Fruit and Food Industry Co. Inc., stated that their factory, established in 1969, has been carrying out activities in the fruit juice industry under the structure of Akman Holding since 1984.

Şahin stated that they produced fruit juices in their factories based in Niğde, Antalya, Afyon and Ereğli district of Konya under the name of Ersu and Golden companies incorporated to the Holding, and also said that they produced natural spring water as well in another factory also based in Ereğli.

FRUIT JUICES EXPORTED TO 35 COUNTRIES

Şahin emphasized that more than 250 employees worked in these 5 factories and that this figure increased even more at periods when production becomes intense and added:

“We established our factories in fruit producing areas in order to ensure our products to be of high-quality. We produce several sorts of fruit juices such as apple, sour cherry, apricot and peach in these factories. Furthermore, in 2005 we started exporting pomegranate juice, which we started to produce for the first time. Pomegranate juice became very popular also abroad. Annually average 200 thousand tons of fruit is processed in our 4 factories that produce fruit juice. We send 50% of our products abroad. We export the fruit juices we produce to around 35 countries worldwide, especially USA, Germany and Canada”.

Şahin stated that they allocate a certain amount of budget for R&G activities every year and said that they exported the pomegranate concentrated fruit juice that they developed with these R&G studies for the first time and that there was a great demand for this product from abroad.

Şahin also stated that they were planning to increase the capacity of their factories and said: “The people in the area also benefits from our activities. We signed a contract for 30 thousand tons of tomato with the farmers in Ereğli for tomato paste production. As our production increases, so does the farmer’s income, and also our country gains due to the increased foreign exchange entry”.

Şahin added that they would offer the consumers a lemonade product that they will produce with hot filling technology and that doesn't contain any additives within April.
