As Desird Design R&D, we were established in 2008, with 100% domestic capital, in Istanbul with the goal of R&D and design in the field of electronics. As of 2012, our export-oriented activities were started in Antalya Technology Development Center. As of 2018, production continued by expanding our production facilities in Antalya Free Zone, a privileged area for leading exporting manufacturers. We continued our work by strengthening our R&D infrastructure by establishing our new Aspendos R&D Facility in 2019. The products obtained by the ongoing and delivered projects are currently being used in 66 countries. We are proud to be on TOBB's "100 Fastest Growing Companies" list for 5 (five) years in a row.
