Message from the Founder

MEF Educational Institutions started to serve our country’s economic, social and cultural environment in 1972.

From the first day of our establishment, we have taken rapid steps toward achieving sustainable productivity and sustainable growth within the framework of our mission statement.

Our affiliated companies, of which there were 18 in 1996, are joined together under the umbrella of Arıkanlı Holding. Today, we have a total of 29 companies, 21  in Turkey and abroad, operating to produce a variety of goods and services. Together with our 17,500 employees, we take pride in making a contribution, however small, to the country's employment and to the State Treasury.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my business colleagues of every rank, everyone who has worked or continues to work at Arıkanlı Holding and its affiliates, for their dedicated efforts.

I also extend my gratitude to our general public for their interest in the goods and services produced by Arıkanlı Holding, and to all of the enterprises that we have worked with for their support.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. İbrahim ARIKAN
