Sunel Tobacco Company has been a leading company since 1925. Its the first company that started using mechanization. At first zig-zag chambers and then tonga machines were being used. Before all of the technologies that are being used at the moment, the processing volume was 15-20 tons per day with 1500-2000 workers.
This facility is one of the most modern premises of the world in Oriental Type tobacco processing. Sunel has visited all of the existing facilities and in a very short period of 11 months and this facility was completed by getting the best parts of existing ones together.
