In the 1940 Mr. Sokrati Karacaoglu, Greek origin entrepreneur, founded 'Selale Kimya ' (" means waterfall in Turkish"), the first company to produce deionized / demineralized water via distillation.
In 1980, Chemical Engineer Cengiz Tuncel has taken over Selale Kimya and Selale started to produce Silver Nitrate, Lead Nitrate, Toilet Blocks, Car Air Fresheners first time in Turkey together with Water and Solvent Distillation.
He established Ataman Kimya Ltd. in 2006 for Chemicals Distributing, trading and import & export operations.
In 2020, the company was renamed ATAMAN Kimya A.S (INC.)
