Company: Having started its mining activities in the 1940s, Dereli Family has been operating in the mining industry for three generations. Company operations are located on Marmara Island through Dereli Mermer Granit Maden A.Ş. in the chipped calcite industry and Derbent Maden A.Ş. in the block marble industry. Our vision is to be a pioneer in the industry in occupational safety in respect of environmental awareness, production quality and reliability. If possible, the remnants from quarrying and processing are turned into small sculptures worked by upcoming artists.
