Karatay Municipality, which has added significant value to the district with its projects implemented in physical and infrastructure areas, continues its efforts to minimize costs.
In 2021, Karatay Municipality inaugurated the new Asphalt Plant and Asphalt Analysis Laboratory, aiming to provide the district with the fastest, most economical, and quality-compliant production of essential items such as interlocking pavers, curbstones, and concrete. Now, they have also established a Concrete Elements Factory.
The facility, established to reduce costs and achieve significant savings in interlocking pavers and curbstones, which are major expenses in infrastructure works, has started production. The facility, built on an area of 11,000 square meters, with 1,500 square meters of indoor space, is designed as reinforced prefabricated concrete. Thanks to this facility, Karatay Municipality is now producing interlocking pavers and curbstones on its own, which were previously procured from the private sector.
In addition to interlocking pavers and curbstones, the facility will also be able to produce lightweight concrete bricks, concrete bricks, and partial ready-mix concrete. Moreover, this production will have approximately a 20% price advantage compared to the market. The facility will have an annual average production capacity of 300,000 square meters of concrete pavers and an annual average production capacity of 325,000 meters of curbstones.
