In the earthquake that affected 11 provinces based in Kahramanmaraş that affected Turkey, Ekinciler Demir Çelik Sanayi A.Ş., located in Hatay Iskenderun, one of the affected regions, suspended production. The company, which fully supports the region and its personnel, started to produce at full capacity by starting scrap purchases after damage assessment studies.
Other factories in the region have also been put into operation, and it was heard that Yazıcı Demir Çelik has started production. The fact that the producer Ekinciler Demir Çelik, one of the most important companies in the region where it is located, started to produce at full capacity made the sector happy. While Iskenderun is recovering rapidly as the heart of the iron and steel sector, the demand for iron is expected to increase in the second half of March with the acceleration of restoration works.
