Committed to Excellence…

Izmir continues to be one of the most important centers in the world for manufacturing and trade. It has a rich history of 8,500 years and today has a population of nearly 4,5 million. The city of Gaziemir, which was only a small village with a population of 40,000 when the Aegean Free Zone started in 1990, is one of the fastest developing and prospering cities in Turkey today, with a population of nearly 150,000 people.

Today there are 18 free zones in Turkey, with a total annual trade volume of $20 billion USD, making up 5% of Turkey’s foreign trade.

The Aegean Free Zone is one of the largest free zones and export bases in Turkey, with an annual trade volume of $2.5 billion USD and employment of 21,000 people.

Companies operating in the Aegean Free Zone support the culture of innovation in our country and contribute to the economy by helping to turn new ideas into businesses. This is best demonstrated by looking at the export and trade volume.

In Turkey, the average value for exports has been realized at $1.33 USD per kilogram in the last three years. Increasing this rate is extremely challenging as it requires investment in technology-intensive sectors. However, at the Aegean Free Zone, the average export value was $8.92 USD per kilogram in the last three years.

We take pride in our past accomplishments, which are the best predictor of future achievements. Our aim is to further this success so that ESBAS continues to prosper for many more years to come, continuing the vision of Kaya Tuncer, the founder of the Aegean Free Zone.

All of us will continue to perform our best to get the highest possible results in order to reach this goal. We are committed to achieving excellence. Our principles of Courage, Perseverance, Integrity, Commitment, Innovation and Respect will always lead us on the right path.

I would like to express my gratitude to our shareholders, business partners and all current and potential users of our Zone for their confidence, as well as all ESBAŞ employees for their commitment and effort.
