In all our activities, we aim to obtain more value by consuming fewer resources. We work in order to reduce emissions and waste, and to ensure a resource efficient use of energy. All OYAK subsidiaries share this goal of efficiency and environmental responsibility.
As the innovation pioneer on the PVC additive market, research and development play a crucial role in the success of our company. Our R&D professionals and our technical staff are constantly developing new products, fine-tuning existing ones and improving our overall product range. This innovative knowledge and our global research findings are pooled at laboratories in Austria and Turkey. These, combined with our labs in different operation sites, allow us to develop new for-mulations and modify existing products in order to better serve our customers.
In addition to our own in-house research activities, we also work closely with leading universities, promoting the presence of our employees in the scientific community and fostering the global exchange of experiences among our staff.
