COMPANY

Telateks A.S. was founded in 1940 by Mr. Emin Ustunel, a pioneer in the manufacture of haircloth interlining. What started as a small textile business more than 70 years ago has evolved into an internationally recognized textile company with clients in more than 20 countries. Telateks serves the needs of many different industries that require textile products. While interlinings for garments account for a major part of our business, our company is also rapidly growing in other textile sectors like technical textiles. Through our Metyx Composites divison, we deliver high-performance composite materials to many industries including wind energy industry, marine, automotive and transportation, to name just a few.

 

Seventy years of textile expertise has made us a leading supplier of high-end textile fabrics engineered with the latest technological advances in the industry. We pride ourselves on the first-rate quality and unwavering reliability of our products, as well as the top-notch, personalized customer service our clients have come to expect from us.
