USO Otomotiv A.Ş., a company that has always been open to innovations for 40 years and also been investing for the future, will continue to develop in response to the needs of the time and to the rules of competition in new markets. Nearly half of our products are being exported. One of the most significant features of our sales, all of which is made to EU countries, is that most of our raw materials and input items came from domestic sources. This shows that we are using our country's resources quite well. Our restructured RD Department has sped up its original design process with the newly installed Fluid Mechanics Simulation Software and is increasing its patent applications. Preliminary research is now being executed for the installation of Acoustic Simulation and Testing Stands with the purpose of strengthening our technical infrastructure; the goal is to offer our customers "alternative solutions" and to add new technical patents to the national economy. In order to improve the exhaust systems produced under the registered "USO Egzoz" trademark and to meet the new generation European Emission Norms Euro 6 (on- and off-road) and Stage 4 (non-road), research and development programs have been launched in cooperation with foreign and domestic solution partners. In parallel with the Advanced Quality Control Systems applications, intense preparations are underway to add the automotive-specific ISO 16949 document beside the existing ISO 9001 certificate. In this direction, various training programs have been planned for operators, technicians and engineers. As in the past, USO Otomotiv A.Ş. keeps taking confident steps forward by preparing ahead for the new rules and conditions of competition.
