The foundations of our company were laid in 1971 in Elazığ when the deceased elder of our family Suphi Aşçı established the city's first and only spare parts company under the name of Aşin Ticaret. Our brand, born in Anatolia, has grown rapidly and moved from Elazığ to Istanbul in 1976. Entered the market as a retailer, our Company started foreign trade in the early 1980s after gaining sufficient experience, and strengthened its position as a wholesaler in the industry. Our company took the name Motor AŞİN in 1981, and became an important spare part supplier especially for bus companies in the 1980s.
We started our journey in a small store in Elazig, with our team of 300 people and our product portfolio of 1.5 million, we provide spare parts for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and heavy vehicles in 70 countries on 4 continents. Our Headquarters and Warehouse are in Istanbul İkitelli, we have 4 branches in Istanbul Anatolian Side, Ankara, Izmir and Gaziantep.
Our deceased elder Suphi Aşçı, with a great vision and courage, translated the trust and reputation that our family had established with İmren Restaurant in Muş in the 1960s, into a completely different area, and established Aşin Ticaret in Elazığ in 1971. As Elazığ's first and only spare parts company, we have supplied and sold spare parts for heavy vehicles for more than 20 years.
The biggest step in our journey from Aşin Ticaret to Motor Aşin was taken in 1976 when our deceased founder Suphi Aşçı and our Chairman Ramazan Aşçı turned our route from Elazığ to Istanbul. The seeds of our brand were planted in Anatolia, and then we moved to Anadolu Bus Terminal in Topkapı.
After our company has gained a position in the industry with its fast and determined steps, in 1981 we took our current name reflecting better what we do. Same year, as we needed more office space for our growing business, we bought a new place in Çapa and moved our office here.
We expanded our sphere of influence and activity without compromising our "commercial ethics” and “we value people” understanding, inherited from our elders when our brand was established.
1995 was one of the turning points of our company. With the new generation of the Aşçı Family in charge, both the company sales volume and the success rate gradually increased. Then, we expanded our headquarters in Çapa.
Our growth steps in the early 1990s continued with the opening of our Headquarters in İkitelli in 1999.
