"As our strategy, we aim to be in the first place in Turkey in the sectors we are interested in. We develop our product range and present it to the farmer's service with all the investments we have made in Başak and R & D studies. We are bringing more than a century of experience in the field of agricultural equipment’s to the Turkish farmer under the name BASAK AGRİ and we continue to be with them. We have our experience, our claims, our beliefs and our power.
Başak's new models have become the industry's one of the best. From this year we will continue our success in the tractor in the field of agricultural equipment too. With BAŞAK AGRI we will meet all the needs of the farmer with sowing machines, soil mills, feed mixers, balers and pre-loaders at the highest level. We will continue to expand our product range in agriculture equipment. We know very well how our farmers work under difficult conditions in the field, in the bondage, in the gardens and in the hills, and they are more than a century old, so we have to support them. "
Emphasizing that they were in the 35th position on the market when they bought Başak Tractor in 2012, Sami Konukoğlu shared the following information:
"Başak Tractor has made a big attack with the investments realized after participating in my organization and we have risen to the top 10 companies down from the 35th rank. We expanded the tractor power range from 50 HP to 110 HP. We aim to be among the top five companies in the tractor market with the conscious and dedicated work of Başak Family. Our production capacity is 10 thousand tractors per year and we aim to increase production, exports and hence employment by making domestic Başak as a 'World Brand' with our activities we carry out abroad.
