What once started humbly in 1940s with Cafer Bayegan's burlap and canvas trade which matured into plastics, combined with Hacı Zulfikar Zulfikari's coffee beans and parafin trade which matured to chemicals, constitute the backbone of the company's activities. The merging of these two distinguished trading families created BAYEGAN A.S. which now is being succesfully managed by the third generation of family members.
The scope of activities enhanced to include construction with the addition of Mehmet Ali Bayegan after his graduation from Istanbul Technical University. Being the Turkish National Chess champion in 1964, Mehmet Ali bey was renowned for his dilligence, ethics and honesty in the business community.
Mehmet Ali bey handed over the reins to his sons Ercument, Nejat and Ercument's wife Rüya in 2000 as third generation share holders and took on the Honorary Chairman position up until his last days in 2005.
With the expanding foreign trade capabilities in Turkey during the 2000s, BAYEGAN opened up new lines of business in addition to petrochemicals as well as new geographies to present these products in.
BAYEGAN looks strongly forward to the future with its 20 international offices, global trade activities, and numerous international business partners.
