The Company was established in 1996 and has been serving its customers with a constant focus on quality and customer satisfaction.Northern Cyprus enjoys a typical Eastern Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and short mild winters. The northern coastline, which borders the Girne (Kyrenia) mountain range, is accepted as one of the most beautiful areas in the world in which to live.
