Silkar.. A Leading Turkish Natural Stone Company


Turkey being a land of natural stones, has some reputable companies operating in this sector. Some of these companies have local production from local quarries. On the other hand they also import from abroad and supply finished decoration products for the construction sector.

SİLKAR is among the leading companies among this group. They belong to the SİLKAR Group of Companies which has a high reputation in the Turkish commercial sector.

Silkar Mining Joint-stock Co., affliated to Silkar Holding Co. was founded in 1990, for natural stone production, trade, and application. The company dealt with export, internal trade, and application services within its first years and in 1994 their Granite Processing Plant began operation. Since then, with the help of additional investments on the plant, production capacity of the Granite Plant has raised from 35.000 sqm/year to 300.000 sqm/year.

Silkar Mining Co. has been the first company of its sector to have ISO 9002 Quality System Certificate and within that same year, it began production of tumbled stones and mosaics. In time, because R&D was taken seriously, Silkar Mining Co. has become one of the best mosaic product producers in the world.

The group started another company called AKDO  in the USA to have more efficiency in the international markets.

AKDO has been importing the very best natural stone slabs, tiles and handcrafted mosaics for nearly two decades.

AKDO offers an incredible collection of natural stone tiles, slabs, mosaics and specialty stone in an unrivaled variety of colors and patterns. While the core business of the company is natural stone, they have recently expanded their collection to include porcelain tile, glass mosaic, and semi-precious stone… all chosen for their durability and ability to complement natural stone in many environments.

The company’s products are ideally suited for aesthetic-focused interiors, including residential, hospitality, and commercial environs. AKDO distributes to-the-trade only, and their products can be found at over 800 of the finest retail and architectural showrooms across the country
