These two products have been accepted in domestic and foreign markets with their high quality. It still continues to be preferred by the leading paint and ink manufacturers of our country and neighboring countries.
Dr. M. Konuray, his older brother, Yuk. Ins. Eng. After Teoman Konuray joined him in 1988, he accelerated his work and developed its product range by obtaining the distributorship rights of many important global raw material manufacturers. In this period, the name of the company was changed to “Konuray Kimya”. Dr. M.
