In 2016, ARMA started manufacturing in a new 7,000m² facility in Hadimkoy, Istanbul to capture growing business opportunities, grow market share and boost capability for new projects. The move saw ARMA grow from 70 to 100 employees while two automatic production lines for clamp manufacturing were installed and stamping manufacturing was supported with three new eccentric presses. A tensile strength testing machine and camera controlled dimension measurement machine were set up, while an X-ray coating thickness measurement device is coming soon to the quality control department. In addition, two new CNC EDM Machines and a CNC Milling machine were installed to the tooling shop to boost flexibility of part and mould production.

It serves OEMs directly including Daimler, Ford, MAN, Otokar, Karsan, Isuzu, Turk Traktor, Arcelik, Vestel, Candy Hoover and Simfer. The company has also increased its number of Tier-1 customers in the past two years.
