"We Don't Compromise from Our Quality"

İşman continued his wording as follows, ‘’ 'While manufacturing machines, Pro-SMH apply only materials and components that could meet premium quality standards. For this reason, more than 70% of the material in use are in supply from Germany and from other EU nations. Even for raw materials such as stainless steel, Pro-SMH prefers to work entirely with German and/or Western European manufacturers. The remaining parts of the machinery are either manufactured by us or supplied worldwide applied to the worldwide standards in quality.’’ said while reminding about their core brand promise on quality standards which they have never compromised of.

İşman said on the subject, “When we look at the growth level with Pro-SMH, a company established in a short time length, with our long years of expertise and industry know-how, customer satisfaction both in Turkey and around the globe is a reality that always make us happy. On the other hand, customers who are choosing European-origin machinery manufacturers as of their major preference in the same sector discipline growingly reporting issues with these and turning our route to our Pro-SMH technology because of their dissatisfaction. On-site service and assembly are of vital importance, especially during the pandemic period. We have seen that machinery could not be assembled or proper service advise or guidance despite giving assembly could not be serviced.’’ İşman, who was not willing to share more information on their competitors said the following,  “The most appropriate response formulated to our manufacturers that ‘Do not re-order machinery if you experience an issue.’ Especially our foreign competitors could not lodge their re-peated orders. What we do is to accept and handle all of their orders as Pro-SMH.’’ İşman said that the only occasional orders that foreign companies can access are amongst the customers that they cannot deliver on and the customers who may work with these brands for the first time.

"Our New and Repeat Orders Increased"

Our customers, who have adopted our quality and customer satisfaction principle, have always gained in profit and continuing in this path said İşman, "The increase in our customers who prefer the benefits attach to production with Pro-SMH quality in our sales recently has increased our clients whom we have been partnering in forming right strategies and providing solutions.

Many of our customers have made us proud by choosing our brand in their new investments.’’ Giving information about the companies they work with, İşman said, "Rimsa, based in Kahramanmaraş, placed an order for the second line after purchasing the first Slasher one, and we also supplied the 5th sizing machine to Şirikçioğlu, one of the leading denim manufacturers in Turkey, also based in Kahramanmaraş." İşman continued his speech by exemplifying new manufacturing lines order by Tüsa Denim facility as in their early preference of European machinery followed by an order to Pro-SMH,  “Our customers, who prefer European machinery, changing their direction and coming to us after experiencing issues and dissatisfaction with what they get. Kipaş Tekstil, one of the important textile manufacturers of our country, ranked amongst our customers whose major preference towards European machinery and replaced by Pro-SMH brand flashligtning a query on our mind as, ‘In what ways we can improve our services as of our clients directing their preference towards our machinery followed by their harming experience with our competitors?’ This could stand as motto that we should have been embedded in our strategy and marketing. Bursa-based company TKS preferred the technology and systems newly developed by our company for the modernization of 8 Sucker Muller sizing machines in its production line, while choosing Pro-SMH technology for its 9th machine investment next to 8 European origin machines. İşman said, “We are thankful to Şirikçioğlu, Kipaş, İşkur, Bossa, Saitex and Yağyemezler companies, which bought in machines from European manufacturers and remained them in their businesses, for preferring the Pro-SMH brand for their new rope opening investments.”

“Pro-SMH Brand Is The Best Machine In Its Field”

While strengthening their years of engineering experience with the R&D center they established, Pro-SMH has become the sought-after brand of investments. It is known that at the first investment level, inexperienced staff or management and countering issues in a short period, delivering of orders timely and without suffering from advertorial or promotional costs and so on are all the major considerations. Cüneyt İşman said that they worked hard to make the Pro-SMH brand a well-known and preferred brand in the sector, and that they have succeeded in achieving this, “Experienced producers do not hesitate to try out alternative ways in their investments. Because what we discuss here a technical team and accumulated experience and know-how to overcome issues thay may arise. In case of any problem, existing machinery are operational. This reality is quite different while discussing about investments made at the base level. Tos tay away from risks associate with new investments, manufacturers main preference will be the leading brands in the market. They are not willing to take risks. To avoid issues on our way, brand preference with the best solutions in a market in which they have capability. It looks more like an unspoken language and set of rules.

Recently, Pro-SMH has been the preferred brand for all investments made at the base level in Turkey. Bursa-based Bozdağ, Edo 2, Ezgin companies as well as Özege from Kayseri are some of our customers who prefer our machines in their investments.” said İşman and shared the following,  "It is not plausible to say  "I am the best". Customer preferences will guide you on that. If you are the preferred choice in the new investment of an investor, if your European or American competitors in established markets return their new orders after sales, you are better be off from the deal. We, as our customers, can say that,  Pro-SMH brand is the best one in its own field.” Continuing his explanations, İşman said, “We know that we need to work harder to ensure keeping trust of our customers, and to offering better and accurate solutions, and we should continue to work in this direction. Our interest in technology continues to increase. We will maintain our leading position in the sector with new R&D solutions.''
