With the renewal of the licenses, MARTEKS gained the right to continue selling its high-quality yarns under the trademarks Com4®ring and Com4®rotor. As part of this renewal, MARTEKS also received the World Textile Award for highest productivity on the compact spinning machine. The prize is awarded annually by the World Textile Awards Organisation to outstanding international textile companies. The presentation took place at the company's headquarters in Kahramanmaras.

Licence package from Rieter

Customers who decide in favour of a Com4® yarn licence profit from supportive marketing activities from the Rieter Group. In various trade articles, seminars and on exhibition booths, Com4® is the centre of focus. In addition, Rieter actively promotes the licensed yarns and their suppliers and publishes a direct link to the licensee on the Rieter website.

MARTEKS places emphasis on flexibility

To further strengthen the pioneering position in the market, in recent years MARTEKS has invested in the production of core, slub and blended yarns. Research and development of new yarns is a factor for success at MARTEKS. Another success factor is the mastery and quality monitoring of every single process stage – from the fibre to the yarn. In this way, MARTEKS will meet the continuously rising market requirements.
The pioneering company MARTEKS, the first private spinning mill in Kahramanmaras, Turkey, was founded in 1972. Since 1999, the Balci family has led the company to success with great commitment and skill. The spinning and knitting capacity was consistently extended during those years.

Today, 65 tons of cotton and manmade fibres are spun daily in the spinning mill to high-quality ring and rotor yarns on 60 000 spindles and 4 500 rotors from Rieter. The daily production of the in-house circular knitting facility amounts to 15 tons.
