Çolakoğlu’s involvement in the iron and steel business began with the steel trade business that our founder Mehmet Rüştü Çolakoğlu started in Karaköy, Istanbul, in 1945. The first meltshop was founded in Dilovası in 1968 to supply billets to the domestic market. Thereafter, Çolakoğlu enlarged its product line by starting production of wirerods in 1985 and production of reinforcing bars in 1990. With the hot stip mill investments, initiated in 2010, Çolakoğlu is one of the pioneers of Turkish iron and steel industry. Colakoğlu’s meltshop is among the most modern crude steel production plants in the World and enables to produce 2.5 million mt of billets or 3.5 million mt of slabs. Production is made with one of the largest electric arc furnaces in the world of 320 mt casting capacity. 3 million mt of Colakoğlu’s hot rolling mill capacity is currently in use. Its hot rolled coil production capacity may reach 4.5 million mt with additional investments. With its seven-stand line, Çolakoğlu’s facility is able to produce a wide range of materials from low carbon steels suitable for cold forming up to oil and gas pipes, in thicknesses of 1.1-25.4 mm and widths of 800-1,650 mm. Up to 2010 Çolakoğlu Metalurji’s production was focused on long products, namely, billets, reinforcing bars, wirerods and debars in coils. With its half century of experience in steel production, Colakoğlu has now added hot rolled coils to its product range and has started addressing higher value-added segments such as tube & pipes, automotive & wheels, agricultural tools, machinery and structural Steel industry. Espacially in the Automotive & wheels sector the firm covered itself so far by the Homologation proccess. The company maintains its position as one of the pioneers in steel industry and continues its mission by improving both itself and the sector. Aware of this fact, the company has been paying attention to continuous innovation and consistent success and hence widening its product range as well as its know-hows. Lifelong education, continuous research and regular process data tracking are perceived as key tools to achieve consistent success.
