Silkar Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. was established in 1990 to offer its services in natural stone production, trade and installation.
Silkar granite factory was built in Bilecik Industrial Zone in 1994, the marble and mosaic factories built in 2001. Finally, after the establishment of the mosaics factory in China in 2008, Silkar has become one of the few enterprises in the world which engages in the production of granite, marble and mosaic all at the same time.
In 1994, Silkar took a major step, by branding all of its products as “AKDO” and entered the North American market. Developing new products by closely following the trend in the U.S., Silkar gained a new perspective in producing mosaics for other foreign markets as well.
With its ability to produce granite, marble and mosaics all together, Silkar continues to lead the natural stone sector with its strong international network and its brand “AKDO”.
About 35 countries, including the U.S., European countries, the Turkic Republics, the Far East, the Gulf States and North Africa, are using Silkar’s products under the AKDO brand today.
