The Turkish nut specialist Tadim is to set up a major presence in Emsdetten in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, having received support from Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI); the state’s economic development agency, NRW.INVEST; and the city of Emsdetten’s Service Center Wirtschaft.
 
Tadim will invest around seven million Euro over the next three years with 30 new jobs created immediately and a further 20 jobs planned in the run up to 2017.
 
The company, which originates from the Turkish industrial city of Gebze, will process and package nuts at the new location and manage its lines in Europe and North America. The majority of the investment will be spent on production, packaging, and logistics equipment.
 
Managing director of Tadim Deutschland GmbH, Mehmet Er is confident: “We hope to expand our market position in Europe significantly with this investment. We liked Emsdetten because of its central location and its proximity to major markets.”
 
“Many leading Turkish SMEs are poised to open branches in Europe. In 2013 alone, 18 Turkish companies came to North Rhine-Westphalia,” says Petra Wassner, managing director of NRW.INVEST.
 
GTAI and NRW.INVEST provided support to the Turkish investor and guided the company throughout the settlement process.
 
“Tadim’s investment in Germany is a significant move as the company not only plans to sell its products to its growing German customer base, but will also start local processing and distribution to neighbouring countries and North America”, says Daniel Lindel, Senior Manager Food & Nutrition at GTAI. “The decision demonstrates Germany’s attractiveness as a production location and the optimal logistics for serving international markets.”
