The Turkish city of Gaziantep, is the main carpet production center in the country, with close to 90 percent of the overall carpets in Turkey being manufactured in the city, said Cihan Dagci, vice chairman of Gaziantep Entrepreneurial Businessmen’s Association (GAPGIAD).
The GAPGIAD official was addressing the Kahramanmaras Leading Businessmen's Association (KALIDA) textiles committee members, who were visiting the GAPGIAD textile and carpet factory in the city, in order to understand the carpet manufacturing process in the factory and explore opportunities for investments.
The carpet production industry in Gaziantep has developed significantly, however there is a shortage in supply of yarn and other products, which is essential for manufacturing carpets in the city, he added.
Mr. Dagci stressed the importance of investing in research and development for the carpet industry to develop new products every year, in order to compete with international markets.
Another challenge faced by the city’s carpet sector is personnel shortage, the scarcity of qualified workers in the Gaziantep carpet industry, is the biggest obstacle that hinders growth in production, he added.
According to the GAPGIAD official, it is important for entrepreneurs to overcome such obstacles and increase production to compete in international markets, which are far more advanced in terms of innovations, research and development.
The main objective of the KALIDA textiles committee members’ visit was to study the carpet manufacturing industry of Gaziantep, in order to understand the production processes and explore possibilities of investing in the carpet sector of the city.
