Founded in 1988, Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş. developed the high-quality concrete admixtures, ready-mixed mortars, and waterproofing materials that were in high demand within the construction market. It was in 1993 when Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş. first stepped into decorative coatings business as a result of its technological collaboration with DAW, the largest decorative coatings manufacturer in Europe. This collaboration served as a milestone for both Betek and the Turkish paint industry as it paved the way for the company’s brand Filli Boya to bring the technological richness of Europe’s paint products to Turkish consumers. Being the first Turkish paint company to engage in manufacturing with a European partner, Betek also opened the door for the first foreign capital flow into the Turkish paint industry.
Betek gained a reputation as a “leading and innovative brand known for top quality manufacturing” with its products appealing to consumers and changing the game in the paint industry. This helped to strengthen its place as market leader in 2001. Betek has always believed in the importance of brand investment and made sustainable investments in this regard while it was climbing to its leading position. And these efforts resulted in the creation of Filli Boya. 2003 was the year of the beginning of its heat insulation activities and in which it took over the role as leader in this sector resulting from its operations, considered also as part of its social responsibility to the future development of its native country Turkey. Operating in accordance with international environmental protection and environmental health standards, Betek Boya Kimya ve Sanayi A.Ş. actually took the first step towards its environmental work in 1993 by adhering to EU paint standards, and has been managing its manufacturing and R&D processes accordingly ever since.
