ABOUT AKDO

WHO IS AKDO?

AKDO is a company built on a foundation of love, family and dedication. Twenty-five years ago, our CEO, Hakki Akbulak was looking for a way to stay connected with his brother, who at the time, was an ocean apart in Turkey. The pair decided that by founding a business together, they would remain connected in every aspect of their lives on a daily basis. As a natural born entrepreneur, Hakki asked himself, “what does Turkey have that America needs?” The answer, in short, was this: beautiful, abundant, natural stone.

As a result, AKDO was born, along with our “brother company” Silkar, a joint enterprise that today is comprised of multiple quarries, factories, ateliers, and a vast distribution network in the luxury tile and stone markets. The AKDO Family is much larger than it once was, and includes a group of passionate and caring employees, suppliers, dealers, consultants and customers.

VERTICAL INTEGRATION & PRODUCTION

With exclusive rights to numerous quarries and our own production, we are in a unique position to control the quality of our product down to the last detail. Through our factory, we offer both comprehensive technical support and a highly trained staff of professional architects who are ready to help you with even the most challenging building requirements.

Additionally, our manufacturing standards go far beyond just aesthetics; careful attention is paid to environmentally responsible production, and Silkar’s factories are considered to be some of the best in the world. The factories have strict quality control, ensuring each product meets our customer’s expectations. Finally, all of our offerings are designed with beauty in mind, and are handmade by highly trained artisans. This is what we like to call “The AKDO Advantage.”
