Natural Stone ClusTR is created within the scope of Istanbul Mineral Exporters’ Association in 2016 with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Economy. It consists of 32 Turkish companies that put their forces together in order to sail together through the global natural stone market.
The project started with the analysis of the member companies followed by a series of educations. An international marketing strategy has been developed and potential markets have been selected for a period of 3 years. From the beginning of the project to today, our cluster members visited Italy, China, United States of America and Australia.
Our cluster aims not only to boost export volumes of its members, but also to contribute Turkey to reach its total exportation target of 500 billion USD until 2023. Its members provide global markets with the best quality Turkish natural stones, especially marble. We proudly trade block, slab, tile and cut-to-size marble products to many countries all around the world.
Natural Stone ClusTR will continue to investigate new potential markets and organize both trade missions and hosted buyer events.
