BEKO, one of the largest home appliance brands in Europe , is finally in the Philippines.  Entering the Philippine market in July of 2015 and exclusively available in select SM Appliance Center Stores, BEKO provides an innovative and reliable range of kitchen and home appliances which make consumers daily lives easier.

The story of BEKO goes all the way back in 1950s, the time when the industrialization had just started to develop in Turkey.  Vehbi Koç the founder of the Koç Holding, was in search of a product that would provide foreign currency to Turkey.  Considering the conditions of Turkey in those years, he partnered with a factory named Bejerano to make an investment in a sauce and canning factory by making use of Bejerano's experience in this sector. As a result of this partnership, BEKO(which stands for the first two letters of Bejerano and Koç) was founded in 1954.  However, the company could not begin operating because of the situation in Turkey.

In those years, a new opportunity emerged: establishing dealership and sales of consumer durables. The name of the canning factory was changed to BEKO Ticaret A.S. and with this enterprise, Vehbi Koç initiated the first dealership system in Turkey and started to deliver Arçelik products to customers’ houses.

In 1977, BEKO Ticaret assigned the distribution rights of Arçelik to Atilim. Since 1983, BEKO has been operating in Turkey's white goods sector with its deep knowledge and experience.

In the 1990s, BEKO was designated as an export brand through the overseas activities of Koç Group.

By the year 2000, as a result of the restructuring process of the Koç Holding Durable Goods Group, BEKO dissociated from BEKO Ticaret A.S. and started to operate under the umbrella of Arçelik A.S by uniting with the Arçelik brand.Being the first Turkish white good brand offered for sale in abroad markets, BEKO has always embraced the goal of being a global brand.

BEKO has been the first choice of 280 million consumers in more than 100 countries by carrying on its Turkish market success in abroad. Today, BEKO branded products are sold every two seconds in the World.

The Arçelik Group, now one of the key players in the home appliance industry in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and one of the largest companies in its sector in Europe, has approximately 25,000 employees worldwide and 14 production facilities throughout the world including Turkey, Romania, Russia, China and South Africa.  The Group provides products and services in over 130 countries with sales and marketing offices located in 25 countries and under 10 different brands.

With nearly 60 years of experience in the industry, the Arçelik Group consistently contributes to achieving sustainability by pioneering social and environmental activities in the countries where it operates, in addition to creating economic value through employment, growth and added value.

Today Beko is the second largest brand in the white goods sector in Europe. In addition it has been the fastest growing brand in the European market for five consecutive years. In other words: One of our products is sold every two seconds somewhere in the world. Being the first Turkish white good brand offered for sale in abroad markets, BEKO has always embraced the goal of “Being a World Brand”.
