Services, open to all but tailored particularly to Japanese manufacturers, will include timely technical consultation, repairs, training and support for FA products. System proposals and engineering education will also be provided.

With the third largest population in Europe and a rapidly growing GDP, Turkey's economy is expected to see robust growth, particularly in the automotive and food industries, and the FA market is forecast to expand 10% yearly. Major Japanese manufacturers will be increasing their activities, raising demand for FA products and related service support.

Mitsubishi Electric started its FA business in Turkey in June 2013 with five locations and 42 employees. FA product support has been provided up to now through local distributors and the Europe FA Center in Poland. The establishment of this new domestic center is expected to realize significantly faster and stronger FA product services throughout the country.
