In 2015, Uzkar Makina started operating within the Darıca Small Industrial Site with a total of 3 personnel and two machines in 125m2 area. One of the machines is 4000mm long cylindrical grinding and the other is 500mm diameter turning table surface grinding capacity. Uzkar Makina became involved the manufacturing of sheet metal slitting knives with the facilities in its possession in 2015 and managed to get famous in this field. Initially, our firm manufactured the knives for the other subcontractors and then started to directly produce high-quality knives to the end user bearing our own signature and are still manufacturing.
In 2016, the company added 500mm diameter internal grinding machine and 1000mm length cylindrical grinding machine to its machine park. It has undertaken the subcontracting of both shaft and reel parts of roll form lines with its machine park growing one step further. The company has worked with many companies such as Çayırova Boru, Yücel Boru, Kardeşler Makina, Metes Makina, and Sönmezler Metal and still works with many of them. By mid-2016, hard chrome plating facility was established and started to serve many sectors such as machinery, shipyard, food, packaging, military, and hydraulic. Among the incorporated companies are Uzunlar Hidrolik, Sarılar Vinç, Kar Beton, Lifttek Hidrolik, Hidropnömak, Karadeniz Gemi, Kibsaş A.Ş, Beşiktaş Tershanesi, and Karadeniz Ereğli Demir Çelik. Hard chrome plating and cylindrical grinding services with competitive price policy continues in Dudullu, Ümraniye, Kartal, Tuzla, Pendik, Gebze, Dilovası, Kocaeli (Izmit), Sakarya, as well as other cities such as Istanbul, Siirt, Trabzon, Ankara, Konya, Antalya, Rize, Bursa, and Erzurum. Within this period, mostly both the manufacturing and maintenance of the work pieces such as miles, roller, metal slitting blades, rod, extruder heads, injection molds, resin tank, mixers, barrel, pressurized nitrogen cylinders, concrete cylinders for shipment, internal chromium coatings, and hydraulic shafts were performed.
At the beginning of 2017, due to the increasing machinery and increasing number of customers, our firm rented the second industrial area of 125m² in the same site by increasing the total area to 250m², and 1500 mm length WMW brand cylindrical grinding machine was added to the park. In the same year, the acceleration of the hydraulic sector increased more and the honing process of its own customers could not find subcontractors to the manufacturer of 2000mm length and 300mm diameter, therefore honing machine was also added to the park. Thanks to this machine, the hydraulic system has been able to manufacture the whole of its own. Towards the end of 2017, our firm wanted to enter the manufacturing sector instead of subcontracting operations and added the Tos Trencin Sn71 lathe, which can process 4000mm length, to our machine park.
In January 2018, we increased the production area to 600m² by renting two more workshops. Our company began to build its second chrome plating plant with 10000 Ampere rectifier support which can cover 7000mm length hard chrome. In the same period, we add the Schoudt brand cylindrical grinding machine capable of 1000mm length, Stanko cylindrical grinding machine capable of 4200mm length and Schoudt copy brand cylindrical grinding machine capable of 800mm length added to its park. Due to the market needs of the companies it serves as a subcontractor, nickel plating plant was established in the same year.
In January 2019, we founded Uzkar Creative Agency and started to work on leading the IT sector.
In April and May 2019, we moved to 1250m² factory site. We continue to serve with 800 m² indoor and 450 m² outdoor working area and more than 15 machines and 15 staff.
