Kastamonu Entegre is one of the two large groups belonging to Hayat Holding,
a Turkish company whose origins date back to 1937.
The group was founded over 50 years ago, with the aim of producing for the chipboard sector in Istanbul.
The activity, which began in 1971 in the first chipboard factory in Kastamonu, now boasts production plants in 6 different countries: Turkey, Romania, Italy, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Russia.
The production of materials for the furniture sector (raw and decorative chipboard panels, flooring, tops and doors) procures its raw materials from sustainable and certified sources and, in the Italian case, 100% recycled. Its environmental and sustainability approaches are considered prerequisites for investment and growth policies.
By adopting an integrative approach to the "environment" not only from the point of view of the product but also with regard to all processes from the supply of materials to the production stages, Kastamonu Entegre is making sure that production in all its production plants is carried out in a way that is appropriate to the environment and nature, from the emission of gas to the management of energy, solid and liquid residues, according to the standards approved in these sectors.
Hayat Holding, one of the main Turkish companies with its exports to 101 countries, produces in 8 countries with 41 companies, 32 brands and 29 production plants with more than 14,000 employees in sectors such as wood panel industry, FMCG, energy, port administration, construction and trade.
Established in 1937, the company has always attached great importance to development and innovation. Always respectful of the environment and consumers' rights, it establishes its sales, marketing and service strategies giving priority to customer needs.
