history

Necdet CoskunuzerInitially founded as a company to produce veneer edgebanding in Turkey in 1987. As the market for veneer decreased, we have moved to melamine edgebanding to meet with demands of our customers. Started with a small workshop in Bursa-Turkey with production of only veneer, TECE today produces melamine edgebanding at one of the highest capacity available in the Eastern Europe and Middle East. From a small workshop in the suburb of Bursa to 30,000 square meter factory; through the course of last quarter century, TECE has been growing steadily. Today, TECE is the only company in the world to produce ABS, PVC, melamine, PMMA, metal and veneer edgebandings under one roof.

Below you can find the developments of TECE in a chronically order:

1987 | An Edgebanding Company is Born

The workshop for producing veneer edgebanding was founded by Necdet Coskunuzer. The closed area of the workshop was about 100 square meters in Bursa, Turkey. Necdet Coskunuzer was educated for production of furniture. From age of 18 to 46, he was producing home furniture and commercial office furniture. When he moved from his home town of Ercis to Bursa, he needed edgebanding to cover the sides of his furniture. He could not find a good supplier for that product in Turkey where the furniture industry was very primitive at that time. Then, he decided that he would consider starting producing this product. With no availability of internet and limited knowledge of such production, he made much efforts and trials to start producing veneer edgebanding. Once all trials were set, the first rolls of pre-glued veneer edgebanding were produced and introduced to the market in 1987.

2003 | Tece decides to invest and produce melamine edgebanding

Melamine was the main product of Tece portfolio. Yet, being an only importer did not help our cause to grow. Thus, we had to make our own production so that we can serve customers who needed special color, lesser quantity, and fast delivery.

2004-2005 | TECE installed printing and impregnation lines.

The investment in melamine edgebanding production is greater than many think of. It seems to be a simple product; yet, the know-how, the technology that is inside of it is incredible. The time of installing a printing and impregnation line takes more than a year.
