NORCROSS, GA -- Yurtbay Seramik, one of Turkey’s leading producers of ceramic tile materials, currently exports its comprehensive product ranges to more than 50 countries spanning the globe. One of the firm’s major export markets is the United States. To optimize the firm’s Turkey/America connection, it was recently announced that Semih Susleyen has been appointed general manager of Yurtbay Seramik USA.

For more than a decade, Susleyen had been Sales Manager at Ege Seramik, another Turkish ceramic tile producer. “Yurtbay has given me an excellent opportunity,” he said. “Our company’s mission statement is very straightforward. We want to create quality, reliable and aesthetic surface solutions reflecting our ‘advanced nature’ using advanced technology and innovative designs. In doing so, we plan on adding value to our distributors by offering them high value-added products and excellent service.”

Yurtbay Seramik USA has recently established its new American headquarters in Norcross, GA. Susleyen stated that this roughly 4,000-square-foot facility is configured to include both office and warehouse space. “We intend to use the warehouse specifically for sampling purposes,” he said. “Yurtbay has already developed a very streamlined Turkey/America shipping program; we don’t think there will be any problems whatsoever continuing that.”

The new Yurtbay Seramik USA location will be fully operational sometime this October, Susleyen added. “We’re looking forward to building our brand and our sales, and in doing so, helping our distributor-partners strengthen relationships with current customers, bring in new clientele,” he said. “In doing all of this, we will continue to recognize greater profits.”
