“We are the only company which produces roadblock in Turkey NATO project”
First of all, can we recognize you and your company?
I was born in 1968 in Sivas. When I settled in Istanbul at 6 years old and finished primary education, when I came to the middle two, I had to leave my school because of impossibilities and started my business life by selling shirt fabric in a textile firm in Mahmutpaşa. I finished my long working life by graduating from the Grand Bazaar.
Years have flowed like water. After I got married at age 25, I finished middle school and then liquor outside. Unfortunately, when I first got the university, I could not register because of my father’s death. I then registered the university again by winning the second time and the student process continues.
Stop Group in 2010 as our second company. The purpose of our establishment was to provide services to end users in the fence sector, and the developments in the past led us to become producers in the barrier group. Currently about mushrooms Roadlock barrier and one of Turkey’s most important manufacturers.
Every year we represent our country at fairs both in Turkey and abroad. We have exports to about 20 countries. The only company in Turkey that is a NATO project to produce and roadblocks. We are working with important institutions such as Roketsan, Havelsan and Land Forces in Turkey.

Where are you participating or participating in fairs or events in your home country or abroad?
We routinely participate in the biggest security fairs in Dubai and the UK in the world and we have reserved our places in the coming year. As exhibitors we will be at these fairs in the coming years. We are attending the Isaf Security Fair held in Istanbul and the Ankara Isaf Exclusive Security Fairs in Turkey. We will continue to be a participant in the coming years.
How do you think you differed from your competitors in the industry? Why should your customers choose you?
First of all, we produce the best quality product without cost. All of our products are of single quality, that is, the second type is equivalent to less expensive production of lower quality products. This comes at the beginning of our principles. We do not disrupt the products we have sold, without disrupting the technical services of the projects we have assembled. We offer periodic maintenance contracts to our customers, informing them about the routine maintenance that needs to be done with the products and providing trainings. This makes us strong in the customer wing.
Our customers are us; high customer satisfaction, without exception, we provide technical service to all customers, we use the best quality materials and choose the products we manufacture.
Are you referring to us from your references?
We are the only roadblock in Turkey producing that NATO project. The Kosovo NATO Project is the best example of this. At home, Roketsan and Havelsan are very important and strategic and are among our important references. Also; Kanal D, Isbak, Coca Cola, Akçansa, Istanbul district municipalities and so on. we have many valuable references.
How did the year 2017 pass in your company? What are your expectations from 2018?
Our year 2017 was a year that we were happy with our growth, we expanded our Kadomuz, we carried forward our R & D work. Growing up to 2017 in 2018, adding new products to our product range, further developing our foreign trade, strengthening our dealership system and passing our company to a completely corporate structure are our most important goals.
Finally, you want to add …
Our country is going through tough days … Believe in such a psychology, there is no point in anything. As a Stop Group family, we work harder on these difficult days by doing our part. We are trying to provide more human employment. I greet the beautiful people of the country with the hopes that these difficult days will be completed in a short time and that our country will return to their happy days away from the battlefield as soon as possible.
