A North American stone supplier with Turkish roots
Through technology and dedication, the owners of Tru-Stone - a family run company - have achieved operating three factories in Turkey, while being based in Toronto, Canada. Discovering the most efficient methods in its operations has been key in giving the company an edge in its success.
Throughout the years of developing and expanding its machinery, production and market share with its first Turkish factory, Tru-Stone decided to take a dive into other operations in Turkey, where it now owns a total of three in Afyon and Bursa. “Since we are a Canadian company, one of the biggest obstacles we have had to overcome is to manage the operations of three factories from the other side of the world in Toronto, Canada,” said Bayramoglu. “With the help of cameras all over each factory, a reliable management team in each factory, the use of communication programs like skype and other online programs, daily reports on all machinery performances and frequent visits to the factories, we have proven, although difficult, that this was indeed possible.”
Production capacitiesDepending on the item, Tru-Stone can currently produce approximately 2 to 2.5 containers of finished products a day. “I can confidently say, we are among the most efficient manufacturers in the industry,” said Bayramoglu. “With countless hours of planning, trying and sometimes even failing, we have found the most efficient techniques to produce high-quality stones.”
In the near future, Tru-Stone plans to add another 120-blade gangsaw as well as an additional polishing machine.
