Inkol İnşaat Enerji Sanayi Ticaret A.Ş. commenced its investments on the sleeper factory on September 1, 2010, and began production in May 2011. The plant, which is one of Turkey’s most modern facilities, manufactures B70 type pre-stressed–pre-tensioned sleepers. These are the preferred choice on Turkish railways and are designed to suit both conventional and high-speed rail lines. The rapid growth in Turkish railway investments, and the anticipation that these investments will concentrate in the western part of the country in the near future, has driven the company to establish its plant and base for railway superstructure construction in Afyon. Afyon became a significant base for the railway superstructure works of Koloğlu Holding thanks to the sleeper plant located on an area of 100,000 square meters and the neighboring railway line construction workshop built beside the TCDD Afyon Çay station.

Following efforts to establish a high-capacity concrete sleeper factory in Turkey, SITAŞ (Sivas Beton Travers İmalat Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.Ş.) was established by Turkish and foreign private sector companies under the leadership of TCDD. The production plant was built on a 5,000-square meter indoor area over a land area of 20,000 square meters leased to SITAS by the TCDD. The foundation of the plant was laid on May 14, 2011 and test production began following completion of construction in June 2012. The company’s headquarters is located in Ankara. SITAŞ has been manufacturing since 2012. As the authority in the investment and operation of railways in Turkey, TCDD decided to invest in Sivas to attract foreign investors and transfer technology to promote the production of sleepers, which are required for modern railways in Turkey. Additionally, it published a letter of invitation, which included foreign manufacturers.
The decision was made to establish a partnership with the group led by the Koloğlu Holding, which submitted the most suitable offer. Sivas Travers Imalat Sanayi ve Tic. A. Ş. (SITAS) was subsequently founded on May 5, 2011. SITAS aims to provide defect-free products that comply with domestic and foreign legal regulations and standards in railway sleeper production, ensure continuous customer satisfaction by soliciting customer feedback, closely follow all technological and innovative developments related to its industry, and to create added value by combining these developments with its experience. The company also resolves to facilitate employee participation in the quality management system through regular training programs, gain repute as one of the most reliable suppliers within the sector, ensure continuity of the quality management system and continuously improve its efficiency. Since its foundation in 2011, our company proved that it is able to successfully implement the tasks it has undertaken in Turkey from public institutions and private sector organizations, thanks to its experience, trained technical staff, utilization of the state-of-the-art technology and machinery.
For this purpose, SITAS implements its corporate structure organization in accordance with the ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and the OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety System. The SITAS quality control laboratory management undertakes to ensure accurate and professional work; high-quality testing services; superior customer service throughout the sampling, testing and reporting processes, and consequent high customer satisfaction; and to act in accordance with the TS EN ISO/IEC 17025 principles. In the SITAS quality control laboratory, our primary goal is to continuously and accurately implement our quality policies. For this reason, all of our employees are informed and trained about our quality policy and procedures through regular training and internal audits. We have therefore established the “Sivas Travers İmalat Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. – Laboratory Quality Management System,” which meets the requirements of the TS EN ISO/IEC 17025 standards, and determined it as our main working principle.
In all units of the laboratory, the employees work in compliance with the requirements of the “Laboratory Quality Management System Documentation” in line with the designated quality policy. The goal of the Laboratory Quality Management is “to ensure that customer requests and expectations are punctually and accurately satisfied in accordance with standard testing methods.” The employees who work in the SITAS Quality Control Laboratory adhere to the principles of confidentiality, objectivity, continuity in testing reliability, and punctuality.
