Establishment of Second Hand Shelving Systems Sector

At the Tuzla Birmes Industrial Area, a second-hand industrial market was established and then turned into a store. Among the products purchased and sold archive shelf systems (steel shelf systems) were also available. But, at that time, warehouse shelf systems were considered only as a pile of iron, and it was quite difficult to sell. However, after several large-scale sales, they decided to focus on warehouse shelf systems. Thus, they became the founders of the 2nd hand warehouse shelf systems sector in our country.
