Research & Development

With a strong tradition of engineering innovation, Ak-Kim has produced an array of chemicals relying upon its own technology. The Company is the first in Turkey to produce various chemicals with importance to domestic industry, including but not limited to sodium metabisulphate, ammonium persulphate, potassium persulphate, monochloro acetic acid, dimethylacetamide, hydrogen peroxide and sodium percarbonate.  Production of these chemicals utilizes advanced technology and facilities designed and built by the Ak-Kim engineering team.

The fact that a country’s level of development is directly related to its position in the chemical industry means that considerable investment is required in the industry, especially in terms of R&D and innovation. With its innovative vision and leading approach, Ak-Kim has always been a company that improves its competitive advantage through R&D investments.

In 2011, Ak-Kim initiated a systematic review of its already existing R&D operations, and subsequently developed an R&D roadmap with a research conference held with the participation of all stakeholders. Within the scope of this road map, and with the vision of “becoming a leading R&D Center that generates know-how”.the Company invested a total of TL 5 million in a new R&D center building. In July 2013, the new R&D Center with a total area of 2,256 m², including 4 laboratories, offices, meeting rooms, conference rooms and lounges of various sizes was opened.

Following its application to the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, Ak-Kim received its “R&D Center” certificate on October 25th, 2013. With this certificate, Ak-Kim officially confirmed its position among the leading companies in Turkey in terms of R&D.

Current R&D Center operations are organized under the three main categories of Product Development, Process Development and General Chemistry Research. Ak-Kim aims to further improve its R&D operations in the close future. In line with this goal, Ak-Kim plans to develop new products for current industries, reduce costs and increase productivity by improving current processes, and offer integrated solutions to its customers that protect the environment better. In addition to creating added value for its customers, Ak-Kim also aims to produce "performance chemicals" designed for new industries, and to implement promising new and advanced technologies such as nanotechnology.
