Our History

From 1955 to the Present: ÖZEL TEKSTIL

ÖZEL TEKSTIL was established in Kayseri by Mehmet Özel as “Özel Manifatura.”

The business began selling fabric with a focus on manufacturing and wholesale.


Kayseri’s first multi-storey store concept, “Özel Manifatura Store,” was opened.


A wholesale fabric sales store was opened in Sultanhamam, the center of textile trade in Istanbul.


Fabric production began with the investment in a weaving plant in Bursa.


The “ÖZEL TEKSTIL” brand was registered. A new generation joined the management.


An integrated facility with a closed area of 12,500 square meters was put into operation in the İnegöl Organized Industrial Zone with the investment in a dyeing plant.


The first steps of the digitalization process were taken with investments in ERP and weaving automation.


The Bobbin/Yarn dyeing plant was launched. At the same time, new top dyeing machines were put into operation, and a sample dyeing line was launched. All top dyeing and yarn dyeing units began to be managed by an automation system.


With new investments, the capacity of the Weaving operation was increased by 50%. Jacquard weaving units and looms, new sample machines, and new warp preparation lines were launched.


Digitalization investments continued, and a significant investment was made with the automation of the dye preparation and input process in the dyeing plant.


As part of sustainability goals, investments to meet the electric energy needs from green energy led to the operation of a Solar Energy Plant (SEP). A technology renewal investment aiming at water and energy saving was made in the dyeing plant.


Drawing strength from a dynamic, innovative, environmentally friendly, experienced, and competent workforce; ÖZEL TEKSTIL has achieved its current corporate structure with foreign and local design consultants, jacquard and dobby weaving looms, an integrated production facility with a closed area of 12,500 m2, and a monthly capacity of 1.25 million meters.


ÖZEL TEKSTIL, along with its continuously growing employment structure and increasing commercial successes, has carried out numerous social responsibility projects related to the environment and society, such as the Özel Tekstil Forest and student scholarships. Continuing sustainability goals and social responsibility projects without interruption is one of the fundamental principles of ÖZEL TEKSTIL.
