After an ‘’Introductory Magal Cavo film”, a documentary of 6 minutes, Deniz Goker, Magal Cavo Sales and Marketing Manager, made a presentation in English , as a complementary piece to the movie.  Cavo’s history, the cooperation with Magal Engineering Group , the business scope with Ford, were thoroughly reflected.

Following the presentations , a plant tour took place. All the guests were split to two groups and the Cavo Plant was visited with the guidance of Operations Manager Berke Ercan , with explanations in English at each station to the guests who were equipped with headphone sets.

It was a clear observation that all the guests were impressed with the detailed planning of the organization.

After the plant tour,  Will Periam, Deputy General Manager of Ford Otosan, gave a speech about Ford Q1 certification and described that it is just as difficult to retain the Q1 Award Certification as to achieve it. Then, he handed the Q1 plaque and the Q1 flag to Kemal Amanoel, Magal Cavo joint Owner. A thunder of applause and cheering took place in the hall, as Kemal Amanoel raised the flag with Mr Periam.

Next , Kemal Amanoel thanked every member of Cavo family and Cavo friends for their support all through the process.

All the guests were invited to take a ‘’Family photo ‘’ with the flag and the plaque at the entrance of the Magal Cavo building. Following this, all had a celebration lunch with delicious Turkish food!
