As one of the world’s giants in the iron and steel industry with 25 manufacturing sites on three different continents, Tosyalı Holding dates back to 1952, when Şerif Tosyalı, the father, began manufacturing hand-work stove-pipes and boiler-buckets with his three sons in a 9-meter-squared shop in İskenderun. In 1988 these three young and hardworking brothers, Fuat, Ayhan and Fatih Tosyalı learned this profession from their father, sweating blood while taming the hammer, and took over the workshop and founded Tosyalı Metal Trade. 1993 marked a milestone for the three brothers who followed the same path with their father in trade.
Strengthening their presence in the market the same year, the Tosyalı brothers rolled up their sleeves to turn the Tosyalı Demir Çelik Industry Inc.’s investment idea into reality. Building the first factory of the group on the İskenderun Organized Industrial Site took a year and it commenced production in 1994. Steel manufacturing in the factory’s rolling plant had begun, and after a year angle iron was also included in the manufacturing portfolio.
In 2011, the Company ranked 25th in the ISO 500 list with its exports made under the Tosçelik brand. With its investments made with the motto ‘Turkey’s global steelmaker’ and export volume increasing every year, the Company continues to rank among the top 20 companies in every edition of ISO-500 list, climbing up steadily. In 2012 the pipe and profile plant started production in Osmaniye Organized Industrial Zone. The plant is Turkey’s largest and Europe’s second largest manufacturer of ERW pipes and has the largest indoor space under a single roof, in Europe. In 2013, the plant joined the Turquality Brand Incentive Program, the first and only branding program in the world, under the brand of Tosçelik. The company is in its second 5th year under the Turquality program and maintains efforts to keep Tosçelik among the world’s leading brands. In 2014, Tosçelik became one of the main suppliers for the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project (TANAP), one of the world’s leading projects. In the TANAP Project, Tosçelik supplied approximately 470 km of the 1850 km long line, which is approximately one third of the total need. ERW pipe and profile plant was commissioned in 2016 in Dilovası / Gebze. In 2016, Tosçelik ranked 90th out of the top 1000 companies among 61,000 exporters and was awarded ‘the Company with the Largest Export Breakthrough’ at the TIM’s (Exporters Council of Turkey) ‘Export Champions’ ceremony. Tosçelik opened its R&D Center in Osmaniye in 2017, making a difference in the sector since the very first day it was founded with an aim to produce strongly innovative, value-added products, As the first in its region, the R&D Center is also the home base of the research and development activities in all production facilities of the Group.
With awareness of its responsibilities in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency, Tosçelik established a solar power plant in 2017 on the roof of the Tosçelik pipe and profile facility in Osmaniye Organized Region. Through this investment, it has the potential to become the ERW pipe manufacturer with world’s lowest carbon footprint. With a rooftop area spanning 200,000 m², the plant has become one of the top five roof-type solar power plants in Europe and the largest in the world.
Exporting products to 135 countries, Tosçelik continues its activities that shape the industry, and its local and international investments that will contribute to the country, people, and nature.
