Turkish fridge manufacturers should be considered inside the “White Goods” sector, which I explained in the article titled Turkish Appliance Manufacturers. I decided to write a separate article about Turkish fridge manufacturers due to the well-deserved reputation they have gained in the world and Europe over the decades.
Turkish fridge manufacturers are one of the important building blocks of the Turkish economy with their high added value, strong export volume, high competitiveness, and well-known (globally recognized) brands.
I am a huge fan of Beko, and this video shows the fridge I use at home.

Top Turkish Fridge Manufacturers
The number of Turkish fridge manufacturers is very limited due to the characteristics of the white goods industry, such as requiring high investment, being based on advanced technology, being highly competitive, and necessitating brand awareness for sales.
Below, I list the largest-scale ones among the 8 refrigerator manufacturers that are members of the Turkish White Goods Manufacturers Association.
Arçelik Inc, Istanbul
Arcelik is a technology and white-goods company that was founded in 1955. Arcelik fridges are noted for their low energy usage (A+ class) and quiet operation. The company sells high-quality, long-lasting residential coolers. In addition to the Arçelik brand, Beko refrigerators are well-known and preferred worldwide. Beko is the first Turkish white goods brand to be distributed outside of Turkey. A BEKO-branded product is estimated to be sold every two seconds somewhere in the world today. In addition to the Beko brand, Arçelik Inc. owns the Grundig brand, and Grudvig fridges are just as popular.
Vestel White Good Industry and Trade Inc., Manisa
Vestel, which produces on an area of 1.3 million square meters in Manisa, has 19,500 employees, and 2,300 of those employees are engineers. Vestel is one of the top 10 largest home appliance companies in Europe and has been Turkey’s export champion in this field for more than 20 years. Regal is a brand owned by Vestel.
BSH Home Appliances Industry and Trade, Inc., Tekirdag
The most important brand of the company is Profilo, and it has an important place among Turkish fridge manufacturers. Despite using high technology and quality materials, their fridge prices are slightly lower than those of their competitors.

The Location of Turkish Fridge Manufacturers
The graph below is from the Turkish Industrial Development Bank’s publication, White Goods Sectoral Outlook, 2018. As shown in the graph, Turkish fridge manufacturers are concentrated in western Turkey, notably Istanbul.
Turkish White Goods Industry
Turkey is Europe’s foremost and the world’s second-largest manufacturer of white goods. Because the white goods business is one of the most important sectors for brand exposure, company purchases and company collaborations are highly popular in this field around the world.
According to the Turkish White Goods Manufacturers Association, the Turkish white goods sector employs 60,000 people directly, and this number rises to 500,000 with the sub-industry and dealer network (source: Turkish Industrial Development Bank, White Goods Sectoral Outlook, 2018).
Turkish fridge manufacturers have influenced the worldwide cooling industry. Their dedication to quality and innovation has set them apart. These manufacturers have numerous options for consumers and businesses searching for reliable home fridges or powerful commercial refrigeration solutions.
