While we first took part in the lighting sector with our energy-saving lamps, we focused our efforts on efficient and environmentally friendly LED lighting, seeing that the future of lighting intersects with LED.
We are aware that success comes from experience, hard work, investment in technology, quality products and customer satisfaction, and we have adopted this as our company's life philosophy. We have produced our products at world standards in line with the wishes of our valued business partners, with our factory that we have established in China. We have provided our business partners with the advantage of being the most competitive companies in the market by offering affordable products to our customers without sacrificing quality. The rapid growth of our company in a short time turned into stability over time, enabling us to be among the respected and reliable organizations of the lighting industry.
In 2017, we acquired HBS Tarım Company and HARNEK Agriculture Companies. We started to produce healthy agricultural products by using organic products with good agriculture certificate and natural resources in the best way on 1100 decares of land with 50,000 trees.
In 2018, we established our 3000 square meter regional directorate and Forlife Plaza on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. We have prepared a large Showroom where we display all lighting products interactively. In addition, with our production facility established on an area of 3600 square meters, we carried our identity as a manufacturer, which we started in China, to Turkey.
By restoring a 1000 square meter waterfront mansion, the Pearl of Istanbul, overlooking the Bosphorus, we realized our world-class real estate investment project with YALI Gayrimenkul in 2018.
We would like to thank you, our esteemed friends, who have cooperated with us in this process, and wish you a successful year 2020 for the entire industry.
