Kıvanç Group, established in 1980, entered the protective clothing sector as a pioneer in Turkey. Today being an integrated player in the protective clothing sector (producing FR yarns, fabrics, protective clothing and owning a laboratory) enables Kıvanç Group to not only dominate the Turkish market but to also very proudly serve more than 55 countries worldwide. Since 2004, we have been an official manufacturer partner of PBI Performance Products Inc. Due to our vertical structure we can adapt to any requirement from our customers with short delivery times always ensuring the maximum quality for the final product.
Many people around the world are protected by our garments – from firefighters in Turkey, Germany, Malaysia and Poland, to workers at leading companies in the oil and gas industry, power distribution, military, police and more.
Akatek (a subsidiary of Kıvanç Group) is located in Antalya with a 20,000m2 factory area with an annual capacity of 1000 tons. They take fibers and produce technical yarns and fabrics (mostly flame resistant).
Research and Development
Kıvanç Group established the first heat laboratory for personal protective garments in Turkey, and the second investment of a physical test laboratory followed. In our heat and physical test laboratory, raw materials (fabrics, accessories etc.) and finished products (protective garments) are tested in accordance with EN and ISO standards. It also serves for research and development purposes, new products are developed and all controls are performed before CE certification. These controls enhance product reliability and expedite the required processes.
Thanks to the traceability system, we carefully record each step starting from the raw material till the final product is complete using ERP software, barcode system, label system, and all to ISO 9001.
The Traceability system enables us to trace every single step from the raw material to the end product, so we can quickly identify the source of potential customer dissatisfaction and take all necessary steps without delay.
Product Liability Insurance
Since the very first day the company was formed, our priority has been the safety of our users. As a pioneer in Turkey, with the aim of securing the loss of life and property of our customers and users, Kıvanç Group is the first personal protective clothing manufacturer, having ‘Product and Third Party Liability Insurance’.
The cost of damages that may arise from the incidents to be encountered by the people using our garments due to material and faulty workmanship have been guaranteed within this insurance.
