After its first quarry in 1993, which is a Granite quarry named Rosalin, Silkar became a company that has a significant amount of Turkey’s natural stone reserves with its other quarries. In chronogical order, these quarries are Dark Olive in Sivas; Tawny Beige, Emperador Light and Cafe Latte Dark in Bursa and last but not least, Nebula
Gray in Sivas. The mosaic production facility, in operation since 2008 in China, is focused on the production of labor-intensive mosaic models to achieve the highest cost efficiency without comprimising the quality. In 1994, Silkar took a major step, by branding all of its products as "AKDO" and entered the North American market. Developing new products by closely following the trends in the U.S., Silkar gained a new perspective in producing mosaics for other foreign markets as well. With its ability to produce marble, mosaics and laminated stone panels all together, Silkar continues to lead the natural stone sector with its strong international network and its brand "AKDO". About 35 countries, including the U.S., European countries, the Turkic Republics, the Far East, the Gulf States and North Africa, are using Silkar's products under the AKDO brand today.
