Here, our businesses are learning about lean production. With the consultancy they receive from here, they simplify their own production processes and achieve significant productivity increases. We have companies that increase their productivity by 50-70%. They can get it without any investment. In fact, this is also the first step in its digital transformation.
Let's make the following call from Kayseri here. Please follow the Model Factory projects. Let our businesses apply here. With KOSGEB, we pay up to 100 thousand liras for the training they receive here. In other words, the industrialist can learn lean production and apply it in their businesses without any expense, but it provides tremendous productivity increases.
Here we cut the ribbon of our Kayseri Model Factory. Currently, there are 8 Model Factories in Turkey. We are working hard to increase their number. Model Factory, in which a university is a stakeholder, is also in Kayseri. We have implemented a good example here in Kayseri. We are getting very good results. It does not only serve Kayseri.
