The first seeds of today’s SANKO have been planted in 1904 with the acquisition of a few modest hand-looms. After five generations in the textile industry, the same determination and perseverance of those early days is still apparent. At the beginning of the 1990’s, SANKO diversified its operations and thanks to sound management decisions, became the giant Holding company that it is today. SANKO Holding is home to over 14.000 employees with internationally renowned companies in textiles, energy production, construction and construction machinery, packaging, finance, IT, shopping-mall investment and management, health and education.
All SANKO companies pursue a goal of being industry leaders in their respective fields with their vision and production quality. This vision entails constant growth and progress in production techniques and production quality with an emphasis on increasing the group’s contribution to exports and employment.
The motto of the founder of the Group Mr. Sani Konukoğlu, “The trick of the trade is honesty has been the source of inspiration for SANKO Holding’s success.
