About Us / History

Turkey's Leading Industrial Organization

GAMAK was founded in 1961 to fulfill the needs of the Turkish industry for locally produced critical component, the “Electric Motor”. Shortly after, we have started the production of the first electric motor made in Turkey and created an alternative to solve the problems of importing motors regarding cost, supply and spare parts. We have gained appreciation and recognition for our quality and continued to develop day by day.

In the last 60 years, besides Turkey, we have become one of the world's major electric motor manufacturers. Now, with the widest range of electric motors from 0,06 kW up to 3000 kW, we meet almost all electric motor requirements of the industry.

Being the leader of the market, we have transferred our experience from motor production to wind turbines. We have started to produce the first local generators for wind turbines at 5MW power level.

Milestones

Today, in our 60,000 sqm plant within our 330,000 sqm area, we continue to empower the Turkish industry with our nearly 1000 employee work force.
