Turkish cement producer Kurtalan Cimento expects a turnover of 75m new Turkish lira (Euro 46.8m) for 2005, compared to 60 mln lira (Euro 37.4m) in 2004, it was reported on June 19, 2005.  The factory has increased its daily cement production to 3000t from 2700t in 2004. The company expects to produce 850,000t of cement in 2005. The increase was due to a higher demand on the domestic market and exports to Iraq, the company general director Gultekin Aksuyek said.  Kurtalan Cimento exported 300,000t of cement to Iraq in 2004 and 150,000t in the first six months of 2005.
