We started our business in 1996 with Artemis petroleum in Turkey.
The chairman of Elsek group, Mr. Osman Erdinc Elsek has been in several business sectors as a partner of petroleum trade, transportation, solar and wind energy technology and construction business since it started.
He ceased his businesses in USA and Germany when the world crisis started. He started to invest in West Africa and now he is investing in East and Central Africa.
After 9 months he invested in Angola and Atlantic coast of Congo . He suddenly faced problems with unstable economy in these countries. The foreign currency policy changed in one day and the countries were not stable for foreign investment.
He investigated all over Africa and found that Kenya is the most stable country for investment for foreigners. He found Mombasa port as the biggest entry to East and Central Africa ,which could be used for light and medium sized industry to establish and supply East and Central Africa. He never thought about the heavy industry until the energy problems were solved.
