The foundations of our company were laid in 1984, when our current Chairman of the Board, Hasan BİLGİÇ started selling wood coatings in a small retail store in Ankara, Siteler with strong encouragement from his father, Mehmet BİLGİÇ. As a customer-oriented coatings retail store with high quality service, Kubilay Boya has achieved continuous growth and became a rising power in the wood coatings market in Ankara in the 1990s.
Kubilay Boya has demonstrated examples of successful crisis management in local and global economic crises happened since 1994. Although crises are difficult times in which many of our competitors chose to discontinue their sales, we stood by our business partners nonstop, no matter how uncertain the future is. Those who say what we can do in this uncertain environment, if they know how to see, there is definitely a light at the end of a tunnel. It is crucial to react quickly to developments and changes, and the KUBİLAY BOYA FAMILY has always come out of all these crises stronger by doing so.
In 2001, Kubilay Boya partnered with a coating manufacturer and started production in İzmir. In 5 years of successful partnership, together they became one of the major manufacturers in Turkish wood coatings market.
Thereafter, a decision to build a new facility was made due to insufficient capacity, however, this decision ended the partnership between the two companies. Therefore, in October 2005, Kubilay Boya started production in its own facility in Aliağa Organized Industrial Zone and KUBİLAY branded products entered into the market.
Kubilay Boya Family is now the leader in Turkish wood coatings market with its own stores located in major furniture production cities including Ankara, İnegöl, Antalya, Samsun, Kayseri and İstanbul. Kubilay Boya, continuously puts effort into providing highest quality products to its business partners with the advantage of carrying out both production and sales activities.
Thanks to our own sales centers and a widespread dealer network, our products are now the trendsetters, they are followed and even imitated in the market.
Our company, which aims to reach the quality and service standards of Western countries as a necessity of dynamically changing economic conditions of global economy, has taken important steps towards becoming a world-class company by co-operating with multi-national companies.
