KALE Oto Radiators closely follow the development of all the industries for which they provide design and production services, and for many years they have upheld the principle of prioritising Research and Development activities with respect to the market demands of both domestic and overseas customers.

KALE is one of the pioneer organisations in Turkey to establish an R&D Center with the intention to pro-actively meet market and customer expectations as well as contributing to the national economy at the same time. They received their R&D Center Certificate in 2011, having completed all the necessary infrastructure works to establish it, by prioritising and attaining targets set over time by the Ministry of Industry and Technology.

With ever increasing business, they are rightly taking pride for continuously being an award winning company over the last 3 years.

To this end, successive awards have been achieved, firstly with their ‘New Generation High Power Multi-Purpose Tractor Cooling Module Development’ project in the R&D Management Category in 2016, and again in 2017 for the ‘National Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Cooling Module as R&D Management Example’.

All R&D activities, within the context of co-design, are undertaken in collaboration with both KALE’s suppliers and customers, together with The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), Universities and Test Research Centers abroad.

Finally, as announced in the 7th R&D Center Performance Awards Ceremony in November, 2019,organised by the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology, the KALE R&D Center was deservedly proud to be awarded the ‘First Prize’ for ‘Collaboration and Interaction Category’ during 2018. An award plaque was presented by Mr. Mustafa Varank, the Minister of Industry and Technology to Factory Manager Mr. Ibrahim Zengin and R&D Director Mr. Ahmet Perut, who represented the company at the ceremony.

In line with their fundamental principles, the KALE R&D Center will keep promoting and developing their continued success in research and development activities.
