Since the beginning of our export business, we have been working to deliver our products to all over the world, to gain new customers and to meet our customers with quality equipment. As Özbil Tarım Makineleri LTD ŞTİ, we set foot in Toronto, Canada in June 2022. As a result of long online business meetings and e-mails, we took days to meet with many dealers in the Ontario Region. We held meetings with many companies in the Ontario Region in a total of 2 weeks.
We're not just left with the Ontario Territory. We also held a meeting with the Native American communities in the Saskatchewan Region, which we have been in talks with for about 2 years, about the dealership and production facility. At the meeting where we touched on the problems of the farmers in the region, we also made decisions to work on different designs for that region.
Although there are companies from different regions that we have negotiated with regarding the franchise agreement, we could not visit those regions due to our limited time, but it was included in our plans for the next period.
We also had the opportunity to meet with a few of our customers who bought our products from the regions we interviewed before. They wanted us to inform them that they were satisfied with the machines and when new products came out. They also stated that they are excited about the franchise.
The increase in demand for products from the regions we visited after a business trip to Canada strengthens dealership agreements. It also brings forward plans to establish an assembly plant or production line in the future.
As Ozbil Tarım Makineleri, our focus is on solutions to
solve the labor and time management problem of potato growers. We designed and manufactured
our 3-row potato harvester to make potato harvesting much faster. With our new
product, PHYP2100 model 3 row potato harvester, which we have been testing out
recently, our farmers will save much more cost and time in potato harvest. With
the hydraulic sliding 3-point hitch system, they will be able to continue on
their way without any problems on the highways by easily taking them to the
road position after the end of the harvest.
