Azelis entered into the Turkish market by acquiring Tara Kimya in 2007 serving the Coatings, Chemicals and Plastic Additives markets. Azelis Turkey continued to expand into life sciences and two years later also covered the Food & Nutrition and Personal Care market segments. Our growth continued by adding Pharma & Health in 2014 and Homecare & Industrial Cleaning in 2016.

In 2022 Azelis acquired 100% of the shares of Tunçkaya, a prominent distributor of food ingredients and additives in Turkey. This acquisition further strengthens our position in the fast-growing and attractive Turkish market for food, as well as in the broader life sciences market. Tunçkaya’s portfolio of products complements the Group’s lateral value chain for the domestic market, thereby further expanding its expertise and product offering to customers.

Azelis Turkey’s primary objective is consistent growth in the demanding and highly competitive specialty chemicals market in Turkey. We provide a diverse range of products and innovative services to our customers. Our in-depth local knowledge is supported by a global structure and value-added services including high-level technical support and tailored solutions.

Our office is in Istanbul and warehouses are located in the major commercial hubs of Turkey to cover the geographical span of the country and provide the best services to our customers.
