My life started in 12 December 1938 in Bergama, and my commercial life started in 1956 with my grocery store. Since 1971, I worked as a grocery store owner for 15 years and after that with the offer of my beloved and respectful family member Mr. Yusuf Ürper, I took İsmail Arıkan with us and continued wholesale grocery product sales with Koll. company. In 1970s, commerce was much harder than current environment. We offered service vehicles to nearby groceries in our region. However, the roads were horrible and there was problem with fuel. No matter what the problem was, we loved our job, and it is hard for someone to fail if that person loves his/her job. We worked together for 4 years and ended our partnership. I was alone. Those years, there was famine in the country, most of the products cannot be found or supplied in limited amount. I was trying to satisfy more customers by dividing 1 kg tea package to 100 gr small packages. In 70s, while grocery store customers couldn’t find these products, we brought the service to their feet.

My thought from the first day of my work life was always the customer satisfaction. Because we were offering service to our customers to where they were. Our customers don’t need to leave their workplace, and spare time to supply what we offer to them. At the same time, with regular weekly visits, we consolidated our friendship. Can I person make his/her friend sad? Therefore, we reached these days with our friends and customers who are happy to work with us. In 90s, I believed that it is better to leave the work to new generation and I did that. But this does not mean I completely left commerce life. I still come to work every morning. Because I feel happy to breath this air in me.
I am extremely excited to see how our country is developing and growing. And we are still discussing how we can contribute to this positive direction, planning new investments, and making these investments with opportunities we have.

“Success is always there for honest, correct, and hardworking people”.
Love and respects…

Honorary President Naşit Ürper deceased in 01 October 2015.
