“By expanding our business in this way, we're gaining access to an important market in Europe – one that continues to show good opportunities for economic growth and investment and great future potential despite the current political situation,”” remarked Dr. Gerd Bergmann, Managing Director of the parent company Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH. “This investment also creates an opportunity to launch new business from Istanbul and out into the neighboring countries of the region. The establishment of our own affiliate in Turkey means that we can offer our suppliers greater sales prospects and, with our own active team of staff, make our presence known throughout the region. It has brought The NRC Group one step closer to its goal of becoming a leading distributor with pan-European distributor footing.”

Rüstü Barkay, who for many years has maintained close and amiable contact with The NRC Group's company headquarters in Hamburg, is deeply committed to this new opportunity: “We have succeeded in building an internationally experienced team of qualified professionals, and it is our pride to represent The NRC Group in Turkey – to market the products of well-known manufacturers here and to develop new product lines.”
