Brasil-based WEG, manufacturer and supplier of electric motors, inaugurated a new facility in Kocaeli, Türkiye.
"We have been present in the Turkish market for years thanks to our partners, and we recognize that the region offers great potential for our motion drive solutions. We are positioned right in the center of the location of our main customers with export opportunities to countries close to Türkiye," said WEG Türkiye Executive Managing Director Marco Antonio Campos, adding, “The expansion will greatly benefit the local community, creating jobs, development, and opportunities for local suppliers."
WEG's 7,000 square meter facility, which has been operational since August 2022, will continue to provide technical support for customers and to assemble products designed with eco-friendly features.
This investment will reduce timeto- market not only in the local area, but also in the surrounding countries including the Middle East, Eastern Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia markets. In addition, WEG will be able to expand its market coverage for low and medium-voltage electric motors.
