Akferal makes significant investment in water treatment



Akferal aims to increase its market share with the acquisition of the water treatment business of Dostel Group.

Established in 2013 when Turkey’s leading chemical company Ak-Kim Kimya and Feralco -the second largest water treatment chemicals and coagulant producer in Europe- joined forces, Akferal aims to increase its market share with the acquisition of the water treatment chemicals business of Dostel Group.

With the acquisition completed on Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014, Akferal now expands its product portfolio and owns two facilities of Dostel in Gebze and Osmaniye. Thus, Akferal includes aluminum sulphates to its product range and gains the capability to offer customers a complete range of inorganic coagulants.

This acquisition will contribute greatly to the development of water chemicals industry in Turkey and ensure that Akferal takes another step towards becoming a significant regional leader in the industry.
