Karat Power is Preferred Dijital Gen Agency Mini Planet for Digital Works
Briefly, Karat Power
With the effect of the developing market, it was opened for export in 1998 and exported its first battery to the Turkic Republics. In the same year, it established a warehouse of 4,050 m2 in Istanbul Tuzla Free Zone.
The company expanded its service scope in 1999 and became the sole distributor of Delphi Spare Parts in Turkey.
Karat Power, which focused only on distribution until 2000, decided to invest in battery production in 2000 and signed a technology license and brand agreement with Delphi in the same year. In this direction, the factory built in the Gebze Organized Industrial Zone started its operations in 2004. This breakthrough was followed by the first export from the factory. In the same year, an OES battery shipment agreement was signed with Ford, one of the world’s leading brands in the automotive industry, and the supply of Ford-labeled batteries was started. Brands such as Peugeot, Renault Trucks, Scania, Honda, Toyota, Temsa, Doğuş Otomotiv have followed this successful work and Karat Power has become an important OES supplier in the sector.
In 2005, the company included the small service equipment of the British Alba Diagnostics company into its product range, to its current product group in service equipment. In the same calendar year, a truck battery assembly line was established.
In June 2005, mutual negotiations with JCI started after Johnson Controls International (JCI), the world’s number 1 battery manufacturer, acquired the Delphi Battery Division. As a result of these negotiations, the Turkey distributorship of Varta, the world’s leading battery brand manufactured by JCI, was undertaken.
In 2007, the distribution of Holts brand car care products of Honeywell company and also Energizer and Optima brand batteries within JCI in 2007 started.
In 2008, the Carbon Zapp brand joined Karat Power’s product range in the field of service equipment, and in 2009, it started to be distributed as the sole distributor of TYC Lighting products in the Turkish market.
In order to focus on the rapidly increasing sales and OES demands in the Turkish battery industry with its strong brands, it ended its spare parts activities other than batteries and oil in 2011. In 2012, Safa Akü, which is also under JCI, and Comma Oil, the leading oil brand of England, started to be the distributor in Turkey.
Karat Power preferred Mini Planet, which attracts attention with its young and dynamic structure, as a solution partner in its digital works.
