KANCA began production of hand tools in the early 1960s as a family owned company with a workforce of just 20. A short time later, as the quality of the products was well accepted by the market, the range expanded to cover a very extensive spectrum of hand tools.
Starting from 1980s, the demand from the automotive industry had lead the way to further increase the production capacity of forged parts and supply higher quality parts to local OEMs, those times Fiat, Mercedes, Iveco, Ford and Renault.
Having all the necessary facilities such as product and tool design, production, forging, heat treatment and machining under the same roof, KANCA has proven to be a single point of supply, expending with further customers like VW Group,BMW, Toyota, TRW, Delphi, Bosch, ZF, Scania and many others, those rely upon the renowned quality of KANCA.
Working 30 years at this location, it was no more possible to enlarge physically and in 2004, KANCA constructed at the east border of Istanbul, a brand new 55.000 m2 forging plant, of that 25.000 m2 closed. This new location was inside of TAYSAD industrial area.
In 2009, warm forging has been established, proving parts to the diesel industry, which brought a new and alternative perspective to KANCA, with relatively smaller parts but enormous volumes.
It was time in 2010, to gather the engineering competence in metal forming, machining, metallurgy and design, under the same roof. KANCA established the first Research and Development centre in hot forging field in Turkey.
Short time later, increased KANCA its production capacity with new investments, implementing automations, installing modern laboratory and inspection equipment. So today through modern QA techniques and the certifications according to IATF 16949, ISO 14001, KANCA is one the leading forging companies in Turkey
