YILDIRIM GROUP Opens Representative Office in Colombia

BOGOTA, COLOMBIA, March 1, 2012 — YILDIRIM GROUP OF COMPANIES has officially stepped foot on South America by opening a representative office in Bogotá, Colombia’s capital city.

In accordance with the company’s global expansion plans, Mr. Marco Orozco was appointed as the Country and Regional director to pursue entrepreneurial efforts in the region, principally in mining, coal & coke, port operations and shipping sectors.

Commenting on this brand-new challenge for the group, YILDIRIM Group CEO Dr. Alp Malazgirt singled out Colombia as an ideal country to explore new business opportunities. He said:

“While much of the globe was mired in an economic malaise, growth in Latin America, especially in Colombia has been spectacular. The country is rich in natural resources, its population well-educated, and the government is very pro-business. We are looking for opportunities which will combine our synergistic strengths and provide a comprehensive solution to our clients in Colombia”.

This representative office in Bogotá, Colombia is the eighth overseas office for the group. Future company plans call for opening other offices elsewhere on the globe.
