The new technical center - Kordsa Advanced Materials Inc Technical Center - strengthens Kordsa’s commitment to global innovation. The center will focus on developing cutting-edge materials specifically for the mobility, aviation, and space technology sectors.

It will house a team of specialized scientists and engineers dedicated to researching and developing next-generation materials. Their focus areas will include high-temperature resistant materials for jet engines, hypersonic flight systems, and hydrogen fuel cells. Additionally, the center will explore sustainable solutions for commercial aviation, interior and structural applications, alongside bio-based and recyclable materials for the mobility sector.

Kordsa's CEO İbrahim Özgür Yıldırım said: “Customer proximity is not limited to production facilities, but also in keeping up with cutting-edge technology and innovation. The way to create long-term partnerships with your customers lies in keeping pace with the industry, understanding evolving needs across geographies, and developing solutions for today and the future.”

With the goal of 'Innovate Everywhere', Kordsa has now established three technical centers on three continents within one year. In 2023, the Asia Pacific Technical Center was opened in Indonesia and the Sabancı Technology Center opened in Istanbul, Turkey.
