The Horizon Journey – Aydin Ercevik

Beginning his career in the steel business in 1980, Aydin Ercevik is an established veteran of the industry.  In 2012 he set up Horizon Supplies & Services Ltd., which went on to become an active part of the steel market in North Africa and is today one of BACB’s most loyal and valued clients.

Horizon has gained a reputation as a key player in buying and selling steel for the construction sector across North Africa. Aydin and his colleagues are experts in the sector and deal in steel products to aid the high levels of development across the region.

Horizon needed support to drive the business forward, and BACB was the perfect fit for them.

A Long-Standing Relationship with BACB

Aydin said:

Over the past 8 to 10 years the developing world financial situation has made doing business in the steel sector across Africa more difficult. We are under extreme pressure from a compliance perspective and are subjected to complex security checks.

We needed a banking partner that could help us navigate this complexity and BACB has never let us down. They are regulated by the UK authorities and have the local expertise to be able to make things move forward. We know exactly who we need to deal with and we have access to the whole team when we need their specialist advice.

BACB is the partner we need in order to ensure that we stay competitive, as they understand the geography and the sector in which we do business.
