Distinguished Colleagues,

In our country, the foundations of our climatization, cooling, and air conditioning industry were laid in the 1950s. It has a history that cannot be underestimated, exceeding 70 years. Production and industrialization steps were also taken in our industry, which was initially import-dependent. The number of our companies has increased with the introduction of various air conditioning technologies in different practices. ISKID was established in 1992 to follow the industry's strategic development with our esteemed founders' vision. Today, our association has successfully served our industry for nearly 30 years, with over 110 members and up to 90% representation power. This power belongs to all our members.

With the active participation of our member companies and their valuable representatives, our commissions carry out studies that will contribute to the industry's technical development, maintaining relations with the public and universities, developing cooperation, and contributing to the development of international activities foreign trade.

In today's world, where integrated design and IoT play an active role in our lives, we focus on the companies' solidarity by taking strength from each other and strengthening their weak muscles. On this occasion, we attach great importance to our URGE (Supporting The Development Of International Competitiveness) Project. We make our best effort to carry out collective activities within the project's framework and effectively use government support.

As we have emphasized in our Air Conditioning Assembly Industry Strategy Document studies, we attach great importance to the message: "Become Corporate, carry out R&D, Export". We would like to emphasize that this motto will be the focus of our new period's works. In fact, we think that the "institutionalization" concept is the basis of all other successful works. In this context, we will increase the number of companies that reach economies of scale. We will support and encourage the formation and strengthening of plain structures that work in a planned manner, form strategies, make quick and effective decisions, and establish institutional decision-making mechanisms in our companies.

"Green Economy" breakthroughs, which we cannot ignore for the environment, the industry, and the society, will be another issue of focus in our management process. At this stage, we need to identify with the realities of life and build the future correctly. This understanding should be emphasized to the entire construction ecosystem, especially from the investor to the contractor, from the tenant to the public representatives. Energy-efficient air conditioning systems should be encouraged in our industry. People should be directed to environmentally friendly solutions such as natural ventilation. To this end, we will follow and support the activities that will reduce energy consumption.

We will support and encourage young representatives in our industry for the sake of sustainability. We tried to keep our average age as young as possible in our 15th Board of Directors. We believe that we will succeed by striking a magical balance between experience and dynamism.

As it has always been, our communication and coordination with industrial associations will continue. We will continue to increase our efforts towards our common goals under the light of "In unity, there is strength."

In our working period, which includes 2022, the year we will celebrate ISKID's 30th anniversary, and 2023, the year we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey, we will strengthen the respected position of our industry that it deserves. We announce to valuable industry representatives that we will respect the trust of our Founders and Former Presidents of ISKID. Our confidence for the commission members and association employees, who work devotedly in this period, is without end. We will succeed together.

I wish good luck to all of us.

Regards,

Ayk Serdar DİDONYAN
