DHAKA, BANGLADESH — Alapala, one of the world’s leading companies in the field of mill equipment, signed an agreement to construct a flour mill with a capacity of 300 tonnes per day (wheat equivalent) for Sena Kalyan Sangstha’s production facility in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Alapala said it aims to complete the project of Sena Kalyan Sangstha, one of the largest holdings of South Asia and Bangladesh and an affiliate of the Bangladesh army, according to the plan in parallel with the agreement.

“Sena Kalyan Sangstha flour mill has a special place and importance for the people of Bangladesh,” said Görkem Alapala, chief executive officer. “Sena Kalyan, one of the largest conglomerates in the country, is working for its people and country and is a reference for the country. The facility produces the highest quality flour imported from different countries.

“It is an honor for us to undertake a project of a giant holding that operates in many fields, including cement, water plants, textile and technology. To make sure that Sena Kalyan Sangstha is able to grind the raw materials imported from countries with different production conditions such as Canada, Australia, Ukraine, Russia, Argentina and India in accordance with the standards, we need to perform the milling operation without compromising the flour quality and nutritional values in all stages rather than adopting standard processes, and we believe that we can do this.

“We will work to ensure that the Sena Kalyan Sangstha facility will be one of our reference projects in Bangladesh and South Asia.”

Founded in 1954 in Çorum, Turkey, Alapala is the oldest and most well-known company in the Alapala Group. The company said it has been established with the vision of leading the milling industry.

Exporting 95% of its production and being one of the “Top 500 Exporters of Turkey,” Alapala sets up turnkey plants in all capacities. The company has set up turnkey plants in over 100 countries on four continents, including developed industrial countries such as Germany, France, Italy and the United States.
