Dostel was founded by Mr. Tarik Yucel in 1970 when it was started as a machine shop in Topkapi district of Istanbul. In 1974 Dostel continued operating in it’s own 1,800 square meter size manufacturing facility in Kartal, Istanbul. During the early 1980s it started manufacturing Jawa motorcycle, Skoda chassis and Beldesan bycycle parts which were quickly followed by all welded chassis parts for Isuzu and Ford OTOSAN commercial vehicles in 1986.
During the 1990s Dostel took large, important steps to secure a position amongst the leading companies in its line of business. Because of the new investments in equipment, in 1990 the most complicated and sensitive dies started production in Dostel’s own tool and die making department.
