BVS CRANES RINGS THE BELL IN “BORSA ISTANBUL” AS THE FIRST CRANE MANUFACTURER AT THE TURKISH STOCK EXCHANGE
The bell ringing ceremony of BVS Bülbüloğlu Crane Industry, the first company in the crane industry to go public, was postponed due to the earthquake in February, and was held on July 17, 2023.
Borsa İstanbul General Manager Korkmaz Ergun, BVS Chairman Önder Bülbüloğlu, Tera Investment Managers and distingushed guests attended the gong ceremony.
BVS Chairman Önder Bülbüloğlu started his speech by remembering those who lost their lives in the earthquake disaster on 6 February and condolences to all of Turkey. Önder Bülbüloğlu stated that they held the bell ringing ceremony, which they postponed due to the earthquake, with a bittersweet joy.
“Our passion for industry, which started 37 years ago in a workshop smaller than 200 square meters, has made us the indisputably largest company in the sector with more than 400 employees operating in production areas of 100 thousand square meters today. While exports accounted for 45 percent of our orders in 2022, this rate increased to 57 percent in the first 6 months of 2023. Not only in our country, but also from Australia to Iceland, from Russia to Kenya, from Bolivia to New Zealand, from Norway to Spain with our cranes working in 92 countries on 6 continents, with our sales organizations in 24 countries. We are rapidly progressing towards becoming a global brand with our own offices in Germany and USA.”
Bülbüloğlu emphasized that he is proud of the interest shown by the investors in the public offering, that the demand from individual investors is 220.9 times the final allocation amount, and 130.5 times the demand in all categories in total, “403,568 investors participated in our public offering and distribution was made to 373,600 of these investors” he said.
BVS used the funds obtained from the public offering in its 3rd factory investment, which was completed in Ankara and started operating in July 2023, and to further strengthen its working capital. The investment will increase production capacity by 50% and employment by 30%. Bülbüloğlu said, “As with our innovative products and patents that reduce Turkey’s dependence on imported products and strengthen export power, we have become the first crane company to realize this by being a leader in Turkish crane industry in public offering. We believe it will further consolidate our strength as well as being a more stable and transparent company ”
BVS CRANES continues to serve its customers by optimizing speed, efficiency and reducing downtimes considerably in the mining and metallurgical industries besides its environmentally responsible approach.
These 2 overhead cranes, specially designed to highest working class 5m, with 65/35 tons + 10 tons capacity, 32 meters bridge span, 15 meters lifting height, one container revolver hoist, one 8 cubic meters grab hoist and one monorail operate in a 275 meter long train station.
Trains carry the remains of a preliminary copper production in closed top containers to this facility. The Cranes which are designed to work in heavy duty conditions for very long periods handle materials containing cobalt, nickel, zinc and copper for further processing and purification in a secondary process.
All the mentioned elements, especially Cobalt, are very strategic today and it is extremely important to supply international customers needs in times of high demand.
The metallurgy plant has chosen BVS CRANES to achieve higher speeds and very limited downtimes, relying on the material and service quality of BVS. BVS CRANES has a proven past track record in similar applications in the copper, gold, aluminum and steel industries not only in Europe but also in Central Asia, Africa and Australia.
Prior to implementing this system, the customer used a conventional bulk transit system to transport material. The system, consisting of a rotating frame with open top containers mounted on a hopper, is fed to a conveyor belt by a reach stacker. This system was temporary, slow, and inefficient.
If we look at traditional bulk handling operations, a terminal receives raw materials by truck or train. It is then stocked and stored in specialized storage facilities, often via buckets or conveyor systems. Throughout the handling process, there are often multiple drop points that result in loss of mass, deterioration of quality and contamination of local environments. Then there will be a domino effect, for example dust pollution from open stocks or open top containers will cause respiratory diseases for local people. Lost and poor quality goods will eventually cause the profit not to be as high as it should be.
Following the increase in demand, the metallurgy plant had to consider another form of transport and equipment as their existing systems could not meet the high volume levels required.
The customer was looking for a solution that was reliable, quick to install and cost-effective, could be integrated into existing transport processes, had minimal environmental impact and had zero commodity loss when handled. As stated by the plant’s engineering team, cycle times have dropped from 15-20 minutes on a traditional system to less than 3 minutes now.
BVS Cranes is determined to increase its presence in the mining industry in international markets with technologies not only increasing productivity and at the same time developing environmentally sensitive solutions.
