ESKISEHIR CHAMBER OF INDUSTRY
On 1st November 1968, the Industrial Chamber of Eskisehir separated from the Trade and Industrial Chamber of Eskisehir in order to work as a separate chamber, to deal with the problems of the industry and to accelerate the industrialization in the province.
Since the first day of its foundation, the Industry Chamber of Eskisehir has conveyed the problems of the regional industry to the public attention, presented solutions and became one of the leading chambers with its efforts to point out the importance of the industry.
The number of members of the Industry Chamber of Eskisehir was in the first years 85 and has reached in 1999 a number of 416 from various sectors. Today, 416 member companies continue their works in 21 different professional committees. The Chamber Council conforms of 2 members of these committees and the Council appoints the Board of Directors.
The first president of our Chamber Council was Husnu Yercil. He was at office until 1974. Then, Kazim Alanya was at office until 1979. Since 1979, Mesut Erez is the president of the Council.
