About Us

The foundations of MERINOS were laid in 1970 with two rug looms under the leadership of Mehmet Erdemoğlu. At the point that we have reached today we are a firm that has been a world leader in area carpets. We have attained this success on behalf of our country together with all our employees, our procurers, our dealers, and our entire public. This success has been a source of pride for our country.

This achievement of Merinos is not limited only to its own firm. Together and in unity and solidarity with all our colleagues in our province of Gaziantep, we have converted Gaziantep, thus our country, into the center of the world when it comes to area carpets. I would like to mention a few figures to you. 25% of the total area carpets produced in the world is produced in Gaziantep. As Turkey, we are producing   30% of it. Gaziantep’s carpet export for 2010 will take place as 1,000,000,000 (one billion) USD. We believe together with all the colleagues that this figure will exceed 3,000,000,000 (three billion) USD in the forthcoming five years.

Merinos has undertaken a role of a school. The personnel we have trained worked  in many firms in Gaziantep and have contributed and are continuing to contribute to our city to become a world center in area carpets.

Merinos is not only in the carpet sector. It started to endeavor in the furniture  sector in 2004 and continues to grow in that sector fast. We believe that we will attain the same success that we have reached in area carpets together with all our colleagues in the furniture  sector.

In addition,  our firm has taken over Dinarsu from the Dinçkök group and became the leader of Turkey in the field of wall-to-wall carpet and it continues to progress in perseverance and determination to have a say in the world.

Our firm made a blanket and home textiles  investment  in our province of Uşak with  50% to 50% partnership two years ago. Thanks to this investment, we have attained a position that we are producing 35% of the blankets manufactured in Turkey in our own facilities. Our investments and our growth are ongoing in this company of us as well.

In addition,  our firm established large carpet  production  facilities  in  Russia's province of Rostov two years ago. Our new investments are in progress and we presently have Russia's biggest carpet facilities.

We have 15 companies belonging to our Group. We have brought together these companies of us under roof of a holding. Our institution operates as the ERDEMOĞLU HOLDING.

They are the MERINOS values and philosophy that carried us toward success in this journey that started with two rug looms in 1970. The founder of the Merinos values and philosophy is Mehmet Erdemoğlu, our father.
