The only capital of our founder Arif Göçmen
was his strength and his iron mastery
Journey of GöçMakSan started in 1960 in a small workshop established by Arif Göçmen in Ankara. The foundation
of this structure was laid by his hard work and patience. The only capital of our founder Arif Göçmen was his strength and his iron
mastery. Being one of the famous iron masters of the time, Arif Göçmen was selling
construction hand tools he made in his 30 square meter forge work iron workshop.
He expanded his business by doing his work good and became famous
thanks to his hard work and strength.
GöçMakSan grew in his lead and even though he is not with us anymore, it is taking firm steps forward in the path he had set.
Arif Göçmen showed us that what bends the iron is not the brute force but the backbone. He left us the value of hard work and wisdom of
patience as his legacy. Throughout the years GöçMakSan gained very important experiences and broke many grounds in Turkey.
Our investment power and financing improved. We have constructed a quintessence facility with unique equipment pool and technological background.
We knew no competition, we only competed against ourselves and we became a company
that sells machinery to all the world. At the point we have achieved, our most important capital is our hard work
and our biggest strength is our prestige.
