Germany’s advanced automotive industry and heavy vehicular traffic make up the chief reason for SAFKAR’s centering its after-sales service network in Düsseldorf.
Starting the mass production of ceiling type air-conditioners for the passenger cars of the Turkish Railways (TCDD) recently, SAFKAR is looking to expand its market share with the center established in Düsseldorf in line with its growth targets in Europe.
