Pointing to the importance of the added value of the companies, Varank said, "We can measure the added value of this company as follows. Turkey's export value per kilogram is around 1 euro, but the export value of this company in molds is 58 dollars per kilogram and 5.8 dollars in plastic parts. Therefore, how to create added value? We say that those who want to see our company should visit MTN. Our company was established in 1997, but it is completing its new investment now. You know, there is a debate there, too. There are those who claim that a company established in 1997 cannot make new investments. Those who want to see it too, how new investments are made. They can see it here too." he said.
WE ARE WORKING WITH GREAT EFFORT
Minister Varank said, "We are working hard to make our country a country that develops and grows by creating added value with value-added production and shares its prosperity with all its people. Our biggest supporters here are our entrepreneurs and their devoted colleagues. I thank them. I wish good luck to our city, our country and our economy." used the expressions.

We don't just open factories, we develop production technologies. MTN company is a company that can develop its own technology, which will set an example for the world in the fields of both molding and plastic parts. It is one of the important brands of Turkey that grows by producing. This piece you see in my hand goes to TESLA. We are Turkey's "Why did we start the Automobile Project? Let's catch the transformation in the automotive industry ourselves, let's create a brand whose intellectual property rights belong to us, we want the industry to work for us and our brand." said.
