Turkey’s largest conglomerate archive protected by OxyReduct
Published on 10 January 2009
With a valuable collection of documents, objects and works of art the Koç Corporation wanted to ensure that they were protected from the risk of fire. OxyReduct creates a fire-free environment and thus offered Koç Corporation the ultimate form of fire protection.
Founded by Vehbi Koç in 1917, the Koç Corporation has grown to be Turkey's largest holding group with over 100 separate corporations operating in 100 countries. In 2004 the group had a turnover of $16.6 billion with interests as diverse as the manufacture of cars, food, TVs and washing machines and the operation of petrol stations, supermarkets and retail outlets.
A purpose built 5,000m³ archive was built in the basement of Koç's new corporate complex in Istanbul to house the main collection. A second archive area was also built for Koctas, one of the first corporations in the Koç Group.
