Established in 1976, Petlas was the first tyre factory that had the ability to produce military aircraft tyres in Turkey. Today, they are still the only factory supplying the Turkish Air force and exporting F16 aircraft tyres world-wide.
Petlas has increased its production capacity and expanded to manufacture all tyre ranges – including PCR, TBR, OTR and most importantly agricultural tyres. Currently, Petlas is the exclusive agricultural OE supplier for Turkish Tractors, Erkunt, Basak, Tumosa, CNH, Hidromek and Massey Ferguson.
In 2005 Petlas was purchased by the Abdulkadir Ozcan Co Group. They are listed under the top 150 companies in Turkey and are the sole distributor of Toyo, Hankook and Maxxis in Turkey.
The company is also the largest distributor of Pirelli in Turkey. With 12 warehouses in Turkey and a network of more than 2,000 selling points, they are currently the largest tyre distributor in the Middle East.
Petlas tyres are being exported to more than 90 countries world-wide and with its ongoing research-development, advanced technology, increased production capcity and strong marketing orientation, it is increasing its market share daily.
