In 1987, Turac Dış Tic. Ltd. Sti. started to operate as an authorized dealer and hunting dealer of M.K.E. then, in 1999, it began to import materials and therefore entered into the global market actively.

In 2000, it completely changed its marketing policy in order to meet the demands of its large number of customers in a better way and to create a wider range of services, thus it carried its market volume to the wide horizons by shifting the sales density from retail to wholesale. In this respect, it focused on market activities at a wholesale store in Tandoğan / Çankaya. in 2008 Turac set up for the first time the Turkey’s largest domestic and national ammunition production plants and the storage spaces.

Within this framework, in 2009 in Çankırı Şabanözü it created STERLING and KAISER brands and produced first hunting cartridges through 13 separate buildings built on 440 acres of lands and 300 tons of explosive materials storage capacity with a total closed area of 7000 m2. In a similar way, it manufactured also blank cartridges with a brand of V.Sport in this facility. In the same year, by marketing high-quality products that it manufactured, the Turac Company started to export and to spread out all over the world.

In the same manner, within 2013 in the aforementioned region in the ammunition industry blazed a trail by establishing the first domestic and national special ammunition production plants in Turkey and in the Middle East. Subsequently, it was involved in the list of suppliers of government agency in 2013 by means of its high product quality and advanced manufacturing capacity, in addition to the projects and achievements it has achieved.

Insomuch that, Turac Company supplied pistol cartridges to the General Directorate of Security in 2013, and pistol cartridges and shotshells to the Gendarmerie General Command in 2018 and infantry rifle cartridges to the Turkish Armed Forces under the SSB (Presidency of Defense Industries) project in 2019. 

Since its foundation, Turac has been continuously striving to maximize its domestic contribution margin related to production inputs by supporting domestic and regional sub-industry and SMEs through its R & D and investments.

It has capacity to produce 140 million pistol cartridges, 230 million shotshells, 100 million blank cartridges and 45 million rifle cartridges per year.
