Karel, the biggest company without a foreign partner in the communications electronics sector in Turkey, is an independent company in terms of licenses and know-how. Karel places a great emphasis on research and development activities and it has one of the most advanced, most systematic R&D centers with the highest level of know-how in its sector in Turkey.
 
Product development activities are performed at the R&D premises located in Bilkent Cyberpark. Long term competitiveness in the sector depends on the potential and competence on incorporation of the new technologies and integrating these technologies to the product systems. Developing rational technologies, translating these to marketable products and presenting them to the market are vital today, in times when the technology advances rapidly. Therefore, to have powerful R&D capabilities has always been Karel's first priority since its establishment.
 
Karel has been reserving 10% of its consolidated sales turnover generated by the production to R&D investments for many years. This ratio is much over the average in Turkey.
 
Karel R&D center, employing 149 employees of which 116 are engineers, has a well-deserved position in Turkey in terms of communications electronics, military electronics, and industrial electronics. Karel strengthens this experience in knowledge and equipment by selling designs and projects to companies such as Aselsan and Arçelik.
