Özmen Damper uses thinner dimensions of steel to shed 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs.) off its trailers, while boosting exports and market share. The hero of this success story? Extra-tough Hardox® 500 Tuf.
As the founder of a leading Turkish semitrailer and trailer body manufacturer, Musa Belgemen knows where to keep his focus for business success: a respected brand, long-lasting partnerships, and the drive to innovate and increase market share. Özmen Damper has redesigned its recycling tippers and dumpers using thinner dimensions of Hardox® wear plate, and has seen its export market share grow over the years.
“We dominate almost 70% of the market for recycling tippers in Turkey,” Belgemen says. “In particular, we export to countries such as France, England, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Serbia and Ukraine in Europe. Our export share across all products is 85%.”
