Mankind invented glass centuries ago and since that day, we have become indispensable in every field from daily life to art and from the food industry to automotive. ÖZYILDIRIM GLASS COMPANY was founded by Cafer Özyıldırım in 1978 and joined the long-established range of glass and glassmaking. SİM Glass Industry, which started its commercial life in Dolapdere Istanbul, has been growing continuously on the way to produce automobile glass since then, and continues to meet the glass needs of various industries such as security, decoration and marine.
With the steps taken in 1996 for being a corporate and industrial company, we decided to continue with the brand SİMGLASS®. In order to produce windshields for the automobile industry, we took our first steps for being a facility. By combining the market experience, we have gained with years of experience with our manufacturing power and, moved the current place of SIMGLASS® among the strong brands of the industry. With the glass bending furnaces that we started operating in the future, we started to serve not only for the automotive industry, but also for mega yacht and ship projects. With our knowledge and experience, we are proud of reaching the leading position of Turkey in the field of curved glass with the architectural solutions we produce by overcoming all the obstacles that are considered insurmountable.
By closely following the developments in the market and the demands of the market, at the beginning of the 2000's, we increased our capacity in the laminated line to produce "High Security Glass". Thus, we have reached the ability to produce laminated glass up to 4 mm - 150 mm. The glasses we produce have always been a medallion of success for us, in the buildings and vehicles they are used in.
Today, as SİMGLASS®, we produce "Bullet-Resistant Glass in European Standards". These bullet resistant glasses we produce, have been reported and documented by international certification bodies for all SG classes from BR1 to B7. Bullet resistant glasses bearing the signature of SİMGLASS®, have been used safely in the security industry for more than 15 years. SİMGLASS®'s logo, travels all over the country on the vehicles of Turkey's leading financial companies. The glasses we produced are used in the American consulate and in many consulates in Istanbul. The security cabins of our police organization, the various vehicles in the inventory of our Armed Forces, add power to the strength of our country with the bullet resistant glasses produced by SİMGLASS®.
