About Us

GIMAS was established in Odemis on the 3 of February 1976 by MSc Mechanical Engineer Samil Girgin. The workshop had a closed area of 144 sqm and the jobs were carried out by 5 workes with 1 drilling machine, 1 cutting machine and 2 welding machines. The first major job for Izmir Rafinery comprised of the manufacture and erection of a turbo generator building steel struaure. Due to the transportation of raw steel from Izmir and then after completion the re-transportation to the site near Izmir, the factory was moved to Menemen, Izmir. 

On the 22nd of February 1978 the new workshop in Menemen started with 800 sqm closed area and 4.000 sqm open area. There were 15 workers and the equipment were consisted of 3 drilling machines, 2 cutters, 5 welding machines, plate roller bending machine and sets of heat exchanger jigs. 

The main projects were heat exchangers and pressure vessels for Petkim Aliaga refinery. At the time inquiries from the cement plants for mobil cement stock silos introduced Gimas to the cement industry. This requests forced the company to expand its Menemen workshop 2.000 sqm closed area and increase the working force to 45 as well as new machinery such as lathes, plaines, sand blasting etc.

In 1990 a long them contract/partnership for Lightbrick machines was realised with Hebel Int. CmbH. and since Menemen factory could not be expanded any further, an additional new factory was established in Izmır Ataturk Organised Industrial Area, which has a closed area of 4.000 sqm, on the 22nf of December 1992. 

With the turn-key project for major sections of a new cement plant, Bati Soke Cement Factory, the workshop capacity was increased with two new 4.200 sqm factories neighbouring the existing Ataturk Organised Industrial Zone factory of the company.
