FUTURE. MOBILITY. TOGETHER.
Harnessing collaborative intelligence to build the future of mobility.
At Farplas, we are passionate about creating a truly collaborative and creative culture where innovation thrives. We operate with a design-thinking and customer-focused view with a thorough understanding of key market and technology trends. We aim to remain a true partner to our customers and offer them system solutions and services tailored to their applications and goals.
Our R&D and Advanced Projects teams collaborate with technology institutions, industry partners, start-ups, and customers to develop next-generation high-performance, lightweight, sustainable products, curricular economy, and production technologies. We are eager to take the driving experience to the next level by enhancing functionality, design, safety, affordability, and sustainability. We also have dedicated teams focused on digital transformation to achieve operational excellence. Our data analytics teams work on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and image processing solutions built on our internally developed data architecture supported with fully integrated digital plant infrastructure.
Farplas is one of the pioneers in establishing significant R&D activity among Turkish automotive suppliers. We currently have four R&D centers at Fark Holding, two of which are government-certified R&D centers at Farplas. Our first R&D center obtained its authorization from Turkiye’s Ministry of Industry and Technology in 2009, much earlier than many industry players and even OEMs in Turkiye. In addition, we received the “Best R&D Centers Performance Award” in the automotive supplier industry in 2012 from the Ministry of Industry and Technology. Fark Labs, our second R&D center, qualified for its government license in 2019. Having received several awards from our customers over the years, all of our R&D centers continue to work as the leading innovation centers of Turkiye.
Our R&D projects funded by national and international institutions exceed industry averages. We are an active member of several projects and lead one project in Horizon 2020, the EU’s flagship research and innovation program.
