Our Manifest (Declaration)
We are in favor of evaluating the development of national technology as a whole with the concepts of domestic and national. For this, we believe that it is essential for companies that design, manufacture and software Robotics and High Technology Production Systems to grow sustainably.
Looking at the pace of technological development and related industrial applications in the world, it will be seen that there is an important link between the development of the country’s industries and the production technology developed by that country. This is because production technology is the direct utilization of mental energy related to production. Therefore, the production systems to be used in a country must be indigenous and national in terms of human resources and production culture. Therefore, the “science and technology” policies implemented by states are also extremely important.
When businesses choose their production technologies, taking a stand in favor of domestic production and making it a national cause will lead to a narrowing of imports and a reduction in the current account deficit, as well as the training of skilled engineers and intermediate staff. In this way, the national consciousness in the domestic automobile and defense industry will be crowned with domestic robotic facilities and high-tech production systems to be established locally.
However, for this to happen, the problems faced by the sector as a whole need to be resolved urgently. It is not possible to achieve sustainable growth and international competition in the sector when there are many problems, including financial and administrative institutional weaknesses, high costs, unfair competition, employment problems, lack of incentives and cheap land supply.
In order to eliminate all these problems, Robot Integrators and High Technology System Manufacturers have decided to become one voice to solve their own problems and contribute to the development of national technology.
Companies representing the sector will unite to solve technological, economic, legal and administrative process problems, contribute to government incentives, create qualified employment, develop joint R&D activities and advanced engineering solutions. This will increase the market value and prestige of the sector and pave the way for the domestic supply of the country’s production investment needs.
ROBOT INTEGRATORS and HIGH-TECH SYSTEM MANUFACTURERS WILL DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY.
Founded in 2018 in Bursa, our association started its activities rapidly after holding its first general assembly. In 2019, our association reached 25 member companies and became a member of the Global Robot Cluster in 2020. After the establishment phase, which coincided with the pandemic process worldwide, it reached 40 member companies in 2021 and 52 members by mid-2023.
In 2022, the first steps were taken to both prepare young people studying at universities for the sector and to ensure the sustainability of the sector by establishing a structure called YOUNGLAB, which consists of young people and which we see as very important for the future of the sector.
In this period, we supported the WIN Eurasia Fair organized by HF Turkey for the first time and started promotional activities. We continue our efforts to make the Turkey Robotics and Automation Summit, which we organize as ROBODER, a meeting point.
At the end of 2022, with the decision taken at the end of the year, the appointment of the general secretary was realized with our representative office opened in Ankara. In this period, when new member activities were accelerated, ROBODER’s communication with Ankara-based state institutions started to strengthen. The application for full membership to the Turkish Machinery Federation was realized and other work was accelerated.
Global Robot Cluster, of which we became a member in 2020, and MAKFED, of which we became a full member in 2023, are important for the representation of our industry. We are proud to represent our members and our industry both nationally and internationally.
