Ziehl-Abegg Turkey in early June celebrated its 10th anniversary, using the occasion to highlight how it has increased sales figures by six times over the past 10 years. The company said it has successfully entered new markets and is positioned to win many new customers. While Ziehl-Abegg was originally focused in the field of ventilation, it today has market shares in the drive systems sector in Turkey, as well, the company said.

The 10th anniversary celebrations included over 100 guests, consisting of customers and employees. Board members from the principal company in Germany also attended the celebrations. Peter Fenkl, Chairman of Ziehl-Abegg SE, was among those that attended from Germany. He said he was pleased with the strong development of the Turkish subsidiary. “Turkey is an important national economy with high growth potential,” Fenkl said. “It’s great to see how successfully we are operating in this market. I would like to thank our Turkish colleagues for their great job.”

Taner Yönet, President of ISKID, the Turkish association for air and climate technology, also took part in the celebrations. Speaking on the occasion, Yönet emphasised how impressed he was by the history and success of Ziehl-Abegg, especially how the company survived two world wars and came to today. “Ziehl-Abegg is a company which cares about innovation to a strong degree,” Yönet said. “The inspiration from Nature can be clearly seen in all of its products. This fact makes Ziehl-Abegg a leading company in the market for fans. We´re thankful for its contributions in this area of the Turkish market.”

A prime example of this inspiration from Nature is the company’s new product, the ZAbluefin, which employs scientific knowledge from the depth of the sea to achieve up to 15% higher efficiency, the company said. The fan’s corrugated blades with tubercles (small humps) on the blade’s rear edge are inspired by the fins of the humpback whale, the company claimed. The result is a fan with optimum upstream flow angle and reduced flow separation on the blade surface, which diffuses sound output and reduces noise, the company added.
