Remembering our founders

Among with many celebrated events in 2019, the year has striken a sad note in Temel’s history. One of our founders, Hasan Fehmi Temel Kip, the person which our company was named after, has left for his final voyage. We miss him dearly and we thank him with all of our hearts for the many years of leadership. Temel brand will continue its growth as a full service engineering firm and is committed to building on the solid foundation laid down by its founders.
