Schulman for picking the Çerkezköy Organized Industrial Zone as the preferred location for its new mill. Turkey is currently the second largest plastics producer in Europe, while at the same time ranking as the second largest plastics importer globally.

Schulman’s investment is set to serve a wide range of sectors including automotive, personal care, and construction, and will also ship to the Middle East and North Africa in addition to Turkey. As such, we attach strategic importance to sectors that reduce Turkey's import
dependency while at the same time boosting exports.
