Efe Glass Lighting sector, which says "Artist spirits touch fire with love", is among our important companies that manufacture glass. In this issue, we discussed glass manufacturing and the company's goals with Efe Glass General Manager Hami Eyilik.
Can you briefly tell us about your company?
Founded in 1991, our company operates in Istanbul Küçükköy with a daily production capacity of 25 tons and a closed production facility of 10,000 square feet and nearly 300 employees. In addition to lighting and glassware glass manufacturing, we carry out special manufacturing in line with customer demands.
Efe glass is among our established companies with a history of 28 years. Can you evaluate the point of glass processing from the past to the present?
Historically, glass has had its own artistic approach for centuries. This is actually the most important factor that connects our company to the sector. It is necessary not to stray from these values. Following technological developments and applying them in our production area contributes to our response to customer demands more quickly.
Lighting also stands out as a whole of glass and light. Do you think our country has reached the desired level as a design?
There are glass and ceramic departments academically in our country. Lighting design is usually a course under building physics and an area to specialize in. There are certified trainings organized by some institutions, but frankly, I don't think that's enough. In order to reach the desired levels by design, it is necessary to be in the kitchen of this business and to cooperate more with glass manufacturers.

There are Glass and Ceramics departments in universities. How do you rate these episodes?
There are glass and ceramic departments academically in our country. In order to reach the desired levels by design, it is necessary to be in the kitchen of this business and to cooperate more with glass manufacturers.
