While the Ata Group of companies has today moved into many different business sectors, its roots can be traced back to 1969 and the establishment of Seri İnşaat. The philosophies of the Group arise from this auspicious birth, principles that are in action today in all Group companies. Initially, Seri İnşaat, as one of the three shareholders of Ata İnşaat, took on the daunting task of constructing the Atatürk Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant, a US$ 1.25 billion project within the Southeastern Anatolian Project (GAP). Stunning contemporaries in the field, this enormous project was completed in approximately 50 months, shattering world records and setting the foundation for other enormous construction projects by the Group.
The Group reaches into many diversified business sectors such as: construction, finance, technology, food, tourism and foreign trade. Diversification of this type immunizes the Group against possible fluctuations in market conditions. The Group has become increasingly more involved in retail businesses, including fast food, with exclusive representation rights for Burger King USA in Turkey.
Thirty years of exemplary service in all the arenas of trade that have been addressed by the Group have set the tone for the march into the future. The Group is at the forefront of this drive to bring together the past, present and future business culture of Turkey.
