Chairman's Message

Cahit Karakullukçu

The 21st century does not make us feel the absence of previous centuries in terms of bringing about changes that have profound effects on many aspects of our lives. The only difference is that the elapsed time not only increases the speed of changes, but also causes those changes to spread to a wide variety of areas.

As many thinkers expressed decades ago, today we can follow those changes that make our world look like a 'village'. As a result of the digital transformation, our computer screens have almost become windows opening to the world.  We have the means to travel to anywhere in the world to make business and come back in the following day. In short, this century leaves its mark with the speed it brings to our lives. Those who make and implement the changes, which we are experiencing, and those who can contribute to that change will be successful.

We will experience an age, in which people question especially economic systems and political resolutions more often. Therefore, the importance of international organizations such as United Nations will be increased. On the other hand, the movements that we are seeing even in some developed countries are further increasing the importance of nation states. Neoliberalism is called into question. Although we hope that differences in the level of transnational and interpersonal development will be minimized, we are moving away from a world where the majority can reach the minimum standard of living. We understand this from the annual reports on the global distribution of wealth.

With increasing environmental conscience, avoiding harming our world, which we have borrowed from future generations, should be our top priority the global increase in the demand for energy will also increase the need for sustainable and eco-friendly energy supply as we cannot tolerate any further contamination of our world. In a world that becomes a smaller place day by day, we have to understand that not only those around us, but also the most distant geographic issues concern us and that we have responsibilities in this area.

As I expressed at the beginning of my article, the astonishing increase in information and communications technology allows easier access for information. Therefore, it is easier to challenge the quality and prices of services provided. In light of above-mentioned issues, we must realize our projects with a high environment consciousness and in the most economical way without compromising on quality.

Such a future can be imagined that the consumption of petroleum and coal has been replaced by “renewable energy”. The importance of artificial intelligence has become more important in the justice system and in medical fields. The use of private cars and driving have disappeared, you just have to dial the address to which you will go. So accidents no longer exist...  The future takes shape based on your perspective on life, depending on the scenario in which you make your contribution and your investment. Today, like yesterday, we are the ones who determine the destiny of our lives, our jobs and our world.

Therefore, as KRK Holding, we must adopt the following values and keep working side by side in order to achieve the future we want, in order to achieve our goals of being a company with a high level of well- being and a company that adds value to a liveable environment.

Efficiency, leadership, team consciousness, self-development and performance evaluation are our main values to ensure a personal and corporate success. In an ever-increasing competitiveness, it is indispensable for us to follow the latest technological and circumstantial updates to keep up with new opportunities without delay. We will continue to keep our main objectives of “modern corporate governance” and “sustainable development” in the future. In order to attain these objectives; quality management, work ethic, team solidarity, transparency, environment consciousness and social responsibility will be the main principles of our group and all of its staff.
