Why is The Name of Our Company Makik? It is Nostalgia!
The reason, why I write the post is our holiday travel to Lisbon. We have visited a canned fish shop having nostalgic decoration.
Original name of our family company was:
Mekik-Masura Makik Fabrikası ve Teneke Matbaası Ümit Fikret Külçe ve Nevit Besalet Külçe Varisleri – Külçeler Kollektif Şirketi
which was established in 1955 as “tin plate” printing line apart from “wooden bobbin” manufacturing business.
Address: 1561 sok. no:38 Bornova-Izmir
The list of Turkish “tin plate printing” companies based on years.
As 1967, our company was sixth financially strong printing line company (AAA) in Turkey.
Factory equipment was sold all to other parties due to financial problems at the end in 1983 and closed in 1987 officially.
