Message of the Chairman
"Our goal is to rank among top 10 in Turkish economy"
Chairman Board of Directors
Turkish economy grows day by day with the recovery trend it entered. Communication means and equipment increase in number and alternatives offered to consumers reach to infinite numbers as a result of the globalization.
Globalization also acts as an intermediary in relaying a small movement experienced at a remote location in the world to our country and sector as a devastating wave.
Thus, it requires actors in the business world to be more alerted, dynamic and principled and makes it compulsory to deliver the best products and services to consumers with added values.
As Kiler Holding, we set our goal as ranking among the top 10 in all sectors we operated so far. We determined all of our management policies, strategies and business principles towards achievement of this target and we managed to become a Holding that puts its signature under important accomplishments in Turkey. We took our steps towards future with a far-sighted approach by taking lessons from our past.
We achieved a reliable and gradual growth by making substantial part of our investments with our equity capitals without ignoring the fragile nature of the Turkish economy and the global economy. Now there are different targets before us. We dream about becoming one of the top 10 organizations steering the Turkish economy, carrying out dynamic operations outside the borders of Turkey and add value to our country and people as we always do.
We will walk towards this target hand in hand with our employees, customers, suppliers and business partners.
Our beautiful country promises a happy and prosperous future for all of us. As long as we know how to work, produce and share as Turkish nation. We work by adding value and we live by sharing.
"Kiler Holding continues to grow consistently"
The foundation of Kiler Holding was laid by Hikmet Kiler and his sons Nahit, Vahit and Umit Kiler in 1983. Supermarkets that were opened in Bakirkoy and Avcilar in the food retailing sector that is the main business field of the family were followed by tens of others every year. Kiler Group that started production of the Kiler and Kilerim brand products offered to customers in the retail sector made investments in different areas of the food sector such as packed food production, production of meat and meat products, production of sugar, flour and bakery products.
Investments in the construction sector that were made in addition to the investments in retailing and food sectors accelerated the growth dynamics of the group. Operations that started with the construction services required by the group companies continued with many housing and office, shopping mall projects with different scales. Kiler Holding that started showing presence in the transportation sector with the transportation services provided for Kiler employees and customers accelerated its operations in this field with the investments made in Tourism, Energy, Health and Service sectors.
Kiler Holding operates in more than 10 sectors with 22 companies assembled under 4 main groups.
Short-term target of Kiler Holding is to maintain its growth by making investments in food, tourism and health sectors and rank among the top 10 companies of Turkey.

Humans Come Before Everything
Our employees, customers, suppliers and business partners are considered as human beings before everything else. Protecting and improving the human life, health, safety and happiness is in the essence of everything we do. This principle is the fundamental element shaping all of our investments, organization and operations from production to service.
Honesty and justice are the pillars of trade
Being honest in our business operations and approaching to our employees, business partners and customers with a fair attitude is one of the keys to our success. We are proud to see that all of our operations particularly including retailing operations allow us to show our honesty to the society multiple times every day.
Earnings increase as they are shared
Knowing how to share is more important than knowing how to earn. Therefore, Kiler Holding makes effort to do something in return to every single cent earned through social activities and projects that will increase the welfare of our citizens and country. Kiler executives know that economic growth cannot be achieved without social development. Organizations cannot maintain their presence without economic growth.
Continuous growth is essential
Learning is a never-ending process. Just like individuals, organizations should also learn new things and implement what they learnt on regular basis. For Kiler structured as an innovative organization that is open to learning in all positions starting from the top executives, achieving a continuous growth by integrating the requirements of the era is one of the main targets.
