MEVKA provided technical support to SMEs for the first time
In addition to the various financial support programs implemented in TR 52 Konya-Karaman Region under the coordination of the Ministry of Industry and Technology, education, culture, tourism, etc. Mevlana Development Agency, which implements technical support programs for public institutions and non-governmental organizations within the scope of reporting and feasibility studies in areas, has implemented a technical support program for SMEs for the first time since its establishment.
In this context, five different projects submitted to the agency by Anıl Yatağanlı Agricultural Machinery, Hidoks Elevator, Mehmet Konsan Makine, Mesa Makine and Akdeniz Glass on institutionalization, lean production and energy efficiency were entitled to receive support.
It is aimed to carry out reporting studies on family constitution, institutionalization and energy efficiency by the companies that are entitled to receive support with the projects that Mevlana Development Agency has allocated approximately 500 thousand TL.
Making statements about the projects they support after the signatures, MEVKA Secretary General İhsan Bostancı said, “Agencies are supported by different support mechanisms such as financial support, guided project support, feasibility support and technical support, which they implement in line with regional and national development goals in the regions they are responsible for. They are the coordinating organizations that carry out activities to contribute to the competitiveness of the region in the national and international arena, production, export, employment and promotion. We, as an institution, have implemented many projects using various arguments since the day we were founded to contribute to the development of our region in every field. Within the scope of our technical support programs for the social and human development of our region in a wide range of fields such as education, culture, tourism, infrastructure, consultancy, we aimed to support a total of 647 projects, including 555 projects in Konya and 92 projects in Karaman, and aimed at the technical development of our region. The budget transferred by our agency to such projects carried out by public institutions and organizations and non-governmental organizations in our region is 9 million TL.
In our technical support program, which we announced recently, we aimed to contribute to the consultancy and reporting activities that our companies need in the national and international competitive environment by including our SMEs in the scope of support for the first time, unlike the programs we have implemented so far. One of the issues to be addressed within the scope of the projects to be implemented with the support of our agency is the lean production issue, which we have been working on in recent years as an agency and which we impose the obligation to carry out activities in this regard to the successful project owners within the scope of our financial support program announced in 2019. We, as an institution, attach great importance to the lean production, which we define as the whole system that aims to improve the value offered by purifying and simplifying the product and service creation process from waste and thus increasing the profitability of the company in order to increase the competitiveness of our SMEs by preventing the loss of labor, time and cost. In today's global competitive environment, businesses are increasingly
