R&D Centre Definition
While continuing its sales and marketing activities in order to maintain its leading position in the international arena, Yünsa continues its modernization and improvement works that improve the product quality and reduce the industrial cost.
 
In this context, our company aims to increase our competitive power in the world, to consolidate its leading position in textile export and to develop high value added and innovative products in order to increase our share in exports. In line with this goal, the R&D Centre was established in 2010 in order to carry out projects in coordination with universities and research centres, to create an innovation culture, and to lead the development and learning of new technologies. Studies are carried out in accordance with the Law No. 5746 on Supporting Research, Development and Design Activities. Since 2010, approximately 2% of the company turnover has been allıcated to R&D activities. Until today, approximately 38 Million TL has been invested in R&D studies. Almost 300 new products have been developed and a total of 262 projects have been realized with the support of European Union and with our own resources.
