The plant, which was built in 1968 by Akdeniz Gübre Sanayi A.Ş, a Kuwait-Turkish partnership, started production in 1972 and was largely modified as a result of the rehabilitation that was put into practice between 1984 and 1987. After incorporating in Tekfen Holding in 1990, first, and later merging with Toros Tarım in 2005, trade name of Akdeniz Gübre was changed to “Toros Tarım Mersin Production Plant”.
