OUR HISTORY

Ekpen Tekstil was founded in 1994 in Denizli Turkey. Established as a raw circular knitted fabric producer we steadily grew and invested in dying and finishing with apparel production starting in 1998.

In 2000, Ekpen expanded its production capacity by 40% and in 2014 Ekpen’s production capacity grew to 1.5 million units a month. Ekpen is now known as one of the leading manufacturers in the Denizli region producing high quality workmanship. Today 72% of our total production is exported mostly to the EU market. We continue to make our fabrics in house with dying and finishing. We have become specialists in the design and production of jersey styles for new borns, children, mens and womens. We have GOTS and Oeko-Tex certification and 100% of Ekpen’s production is manufactured using BCI cotton.

In recent years we have expanded with offices in Izmir, London and Barcelona. Our main business development goals are to strengthen our European and American Markets. We are building our teams in all regions with new expert and creative minds to achieve these goals.

In March 2021 we moved into our new green production unit powered by renewable energy and harvesting rain water for production. We are making progress in achieving long lasting sustainable goals to become carbon neutral and building a circular supply chain of the future. We strongly believe in placing responsible manufacturing at the forefront of our future goals.
