Schneider Electric 

 

Since the beginning of its journey in 1836, Schneider Electric has become a global expert in energy management. The journey started in the iron and steel industry, continued in the heavy machinery and shipbuilding sectors in the 19th century, and then switched to electric and automation management in the 20th century.

 

Schneider Electric is a global specialist in energy management and automation with operations in more than 100 countries. The company offers integrated solutions across multiple market segments, including leadership positions in non-residential and residential buildings, industrial and machine manufacturers, utilities and infrastructure, and data centers and networks. Schnieder is focused on ensuring safe, reliable, efficient, productive and green energy and the group, with its 170,000 employees, earned revenue of EUR 25 billion in 2014 through an active commitment to helping individuals and organizations make the most of their energy.

 

Schneider Electric has been active in Turkey for more than 160 years and its initial commercial activities were related to the supply of heavy industry products to the Ottoman Navy. The sales of Telemecanique started in 1975 with a single dealer. This was followed by the production of Merlin Gerin medium-voltage breakers in 1978 with a license granted to Emek. Investments in Turkey gained momentum when Telemecanique started its activities in Turkey in 1987 and when Merlin Gerin bought Emek in 1988, setting up a dealer network to sell low-voltage products. The medium-voltage factory in Kemalpaşa, İzmir, which was extended in 1997, became the company’s global production center in 1999. Metesan, bought by Lexel in 2000, was tied to Schneider Electric Turkey four years later, and its integration was completed in 2006. After acquiring PKS, a cable conduit producer, the company started to invest in its 73,000-square-meter factory in 2009, where it produces medium-voltage products and breakers. Following the new factory investment in Manisa, the company took over the medium-voltage distribution activities of Areva in the same year and set up the energy department, its fifth global business field. As of 2013, following a 1.5-year merger process, Schneider Electric incorporated Telvent, a real-time information technology solutions and information provider.

 

Schneider Electric carries out its activities in Turkey with around 2,000 employees, 200 dealers and partners, 18 sales offices and three production plants in Cigli-Izmir, Kocaeli-Gebze and Manisa, continuing to contribute to the Turkish economy and employment. The transformer factory in Kocaeli is Schneider Electric’s first "LEED Gold" certified building in the world, while its Manisa plant is the first "BREEAM-in-Use" certified factory in Turkey.

 

Schneider Electric is one of the largest electricity distributer, industrial controller and automation producers in the global power sector. It produces electric distribution equipment, process and machines, solar panels, power management, security and building management systems, control and safety systems, medium-voltage distribution equipment, automation and control product and its solutions in Turkey.
