Service Location – TurkeyTechnical Service
We are dedicated to first-class repairs, manufacturing, and service for steel plants. You benefit from top SMS quality and performance. All this contributes to the high reputation of SMS group as an international leader on our market.
The company was founded in late 2011 to provide services for all Turkish flat steel plants. Soon afterward, in 2012, it nickel-coated its first CC copper plates. There has been a continuous expansion of the program ever since. Included today are mill component repairs as well as refurbishment of segment roll cladding. Most recently, in the last two years, we have expanded our engineering and CAD capabilities to boost our OEM spare parts business.
Our team consists of 6 engineers who design and develop new mold coppers for the Turkish and European markets. We specifically target and serve owners of new slab casters, our key customers. Also in our range is the modification for existing mold copper to improve water flow and copper wear resistance. What you get from our technical expertise is better casting quality and a longer mold copper service life.
As an engineering and technology supplier for slab casters and complete steel plants, SMS group has a special focus on mold copper plate design, development, and manufacturing. We draw on more than 50 years of know-how in manufacturing nickel plate mold copper and refurbishing used copper plates by nickel (or nickel-cobalt) plating.

The SMS group service and manufacturing workshop is situated near Istanbul, in the ancient port city of Libyssa - today's Gebze.
It's an ideal location, right next to one of Turkey's largest steelworks, a major port, and an international airport.
Included in the facilities at SMS group Turkey (covering an area of approx. 3,300 m² ) are two broad-face box plating stations and one narrow-face plating station. Furthermore, we repair and refurbish water jackets, water boxes, rendering them clean and rust-free. Important here is refurbishing water jackets annualy to prevent cooling channel blockage and increase the service life.
