Staff and service at the heart of success

by Tom Blacker, Milling and Grain

s we know, Turkey is a developing


country. What we might not know is
that it accounts for over 20 percent
of worlds flour trade in exports.
Now supported by Konya Borsa, a
new local market trading board, it
is well positioned to accelerate both
the means and ease of the countys
business operations for all customers,
both domestic and international.
As a major manufacturer and supplier working within the Turkish
milling industry and meeting the needs of customers around
the world, Molino is one of Turkeys major drivers in milling
development.
Molino was formed in 1964 by industry stalwart Dr Omer Lutfi
Alaybeyi, the son of Salim Alaybeyi who had established an original
company in the 1950s which focused on wheat merchandising and
bakery activities. After graduating from university in France in 1953,
Dr Omer turned his attention to the production of milling machines
and their ancillary equipment manufacture.
Today, the company has over 54,000 square meters of open factory
area and a massive 30,000 square meters under cover.
Our company successfully executes all steps from research
and development to the establishment of turn-key factories.
We are a leading company in our sector and we operated with
professionally throughout and follow-up with dedicated after
sales service, says todays Vice President Salim Alaybeyi, the
son of Dr Omer Lutfi.
Molino supplies all the equipment a miller needs to operate flour
and semolina mills, grain silos, seed cleaning units, pulse sieving
and packing plants, pneumatic and mechanic conveying systems, etc.
Our company defines its basic principles in all activities as low
cost and high quality flour production, he says.
Customers come from a range of countries besides Turkey; from
France to Syria, Morocco to Eygpt, from the Dominican Republic
to India, especially Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Russia, Ukraine, UAE,
Germany, Greece and Yemen.
In April this year, Professor Dr Hikmet Boyacioglu MAGs Turkish
editor and I met with Salim Alaybeyi, Ahmet Yalcinkaya and
Abdullah Ghandoura at the Molino headquarters in Konya, Turkey.
This was my first visit for three years and it was great to return and
discover what has changed.

The importance of quality staff

Staff are extremely important to Molino and our operations, says


Salim Alaybeyi.
With over 250 staff, Molino has the flexibility to operate around
customer needs.
Our staff are innovative and lead the way for technological solutions
that are taken up around the world, all from the heart of Anatolia, he
says.
International guests would have seen the prestige and heritage of this
companys traditional culture from the Konya region of Turkey when
visiting its exhibition booth at IDMA 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey, there
were local dance troupes and an Anatolian theme to their castle-like
exhibition stand and where ai (tea) was provided to all.
In our conversation, Ahmet and Abdullah described how they had both
recently returned from three months of business visits in Eastern Africa.
This had been an inspiring time and very positive for their machinery
and services across many countries and industries.
They are the people who believe and display the way that Molino
pride themselves on co-operating closely with customers. Customers
expectations are surpassed because they provide so much more than just
their machinery.
From Molinos research and development, to its wide know-how
and advice all goes hand-in-hand with its success and all round care.
The company is able to provide a general yet wide range of individual
consultancy services. Whether it is on matters of access to finance,
maintenance and upkeep of the mill or turnkey project, market
knowledge or education and access.
Whether it be logistics or project management, Molino focuses on
providing a service to its customers from start to finish. For example,
its staff speak many of the worlds major languages. In fact, their first
machinery sale was to France in 1981 by their founder, Dr Omer Lutfi
Alaybeyi.
As reported by this magazine in a 2013, Dr Omer is an innovator. He
was able to combine his vision with business. Serving the flour milling
industry has now grown to incorporate serving other milling industry
needs such as silos, seed cleaning, pulse sieving, packaging, pneumatic
and mechanical conveying.
With a 30,000m space of factory floor in Turkey, and ISO9001 and
ISO14001 quality management systems, Molino is a supplier that is of
recognised international standing. A new website (www.molino.com.tr),
set out to provide a user-friendly experience whilst keeping the values
and unique position of Molino clearly identified.
