Board Chairman and CEO's Message

İlknur Aktaş
Board Chairman

Dear Shareholders of Aktaş Holding; 

With an understanding of “keeping the values alive”, Aktaş Holding has grown step by step since 1938 and continues to fill us with pride thanks to its each and every kind of detail in this 80-year-tale. 

As of 2018, this old and rooted plane tree, by whose foundation we are excited, grounds on change and transformation, reveals a strong vision and keeps working for corporate culture constantly. 

Of course, business world goes through a rapid change just like each and every area of our lives. 

And this change feels its presence on both levels of management and operation just to keep companies work and exist in the future. 

This deep-seated company, whose foundations were laid by late Sait Aktaş in a small workshop, has successfully come to these days with the help of Şahap Aktaş’s strong vision, entrepreneurial spirit and hard-working character.

As of April 2018, in the 80th year of our company, I am happy and excited to take on such an important mission as Chief Executive Officer. This is a relay race, without any doubt, and we will go on doing our best to carry the flag forward. 

The important point for our company is the sustainable success and a view for creating values. Our works for being the better and ultimately perfect will continue. As known, there are so few family businesses that end up with 3rd generation leaders. And we will continue our journey with the awareness of this important responsibility and also a dynamic structure. 

Aktaş Holding has already had the potential to do much better with its available human resources. 

In fact, our success is based on these competent human resources, which primarily leads us to invest in human labor.

On the other hand, we have focused on our social responsibilities in our 80th year. We aim to realize our corporate social responsibility works that add values to our society under the leadership of Aktaş Educational Foundation. 

To sum, we will work with the same determination to meet the expectations of tomorrow at its best through developing right strategies and setting the world on fire like how we did in the past. 

On this wise, I celebrate 80th year of Aktaş Holding and give my love and respect to everybody.

Dear Shareholders of Aktaş Holding;

Aktaş Holding’s understanding of corporateness dating back to years ago, its innovative and high-quality works, its company tradition prioritizing the values and most importantly, its vision actually summarizes the final point it reached in the sector today …

While being a part of the 80th anniversary of this great company that carries out activities all around the world and successfully represents our country, I wish our company to see many more 80 years. 

For sure, Aktaş Holding has high targets for the future. And I believe it is worth mentioning that for our company to attain its existing targets, every member of this large family has to assume some responsibilities.

Hence, Aktaş Holding’s management and organizational structure has sustainably and already kept pace with the current conditions, thanks to its established history. 

The important point here is to keep our corporate tradition while catching the change and to contribute to better positioning of this great plane tree in the future.

In this process, our basic priority shall be to act with an innovative and futurist point of view in order to construct Aktaş Holding’s future with sustainable works.

Such that, when we consider our day, family owned companies are among the most important cogs of the wheel of economy in our country, as in the entire world.

For sustainability of the family-owned companies, it is very important that the corporate structure is based on sound foundations and this strucure is supported by sustainable works … 

We will keep on creating value for our company to preserve its sustainable success in the future as it does today and to reach the future generations.

While keeping on investing in information and technology in particular, we aim to keep our concrete steps to make contribuion to our company’s brand value in the global scale.

In this regard, I would like to emphasize that the digital transformation works currently ongoing in our company will continue in the same pace in the following processes as well.

In short, it is our greatest expectation that Aktaş Holding will keep on growing and developing. In order to meet this expectation, we need to decisively continue the works to make contributions to our company’s progress. 

I believe that as a result of these works, we will see Aktaş Holding, which is one of the sources of pride of our country in the world thanks to its successful works carried out so far, in much better positions in the future.

To this end, we need to keep on producing and working hard. Because it is our job to produce …
