Pimas was established in 1963 to manufacture PVC pipes.

The pipes used for carrying potable water, irrigation and sanitation until then were made of asbestos or iron. These pipes were hard to lay, carry and repair, adverse to human health and, easily lost their functions. It was possible to bring potable water to villages in very fast manner after PIMAS started to manufacture PVC based pipes in Turkey. By this means, thousands of villages accessed potable water. It was then possible to install sanitation systems in buildings in a shorter period of time and, most importantly, in a healthy manner. This caused a revolution in the agriculture industry. Springer irrigation systems superseding conventional irrigation systems allowed the transfer of more amount of water in an effortless manner. With the ability to provide not more than sufficient amount of water, this system increased productivity and, the plants hard to be irrigated such as bananas and citrus fruits were irrigated more easily and protected from frost. After all these developments, Pimas started to be known as the name of PVC pipes.

It was 1970 when Turkey experienced an energy crisis along with the rest of the world. However, the urbanization continued to increase the number of houses constructed. Such materials used in construction changed quickly and, old types of woodwork iron joinery rotted away within a few years, vulnerable to cold, heat and rain, frequently requiring paint and maintenance were no longer a solution got the needs of the developing cities. And the solution has come, once again, from PIMAS. After the launch of R&D activities at the end of the 70’s, PIMAS introduced in 1982 the first PVC Window System in Turkey: PIMAPEN.

Offering a solution to the energy problem due to its outstanding insulation features, Pimapen provided the users with a whole new level of comfort leaving dust, dirt and air pollution outside. It was long lasting, pain-maintenance free and affordable. This new product made of recyclable materials offered sound insulation and, it was an ideal product for environment since it prevented trees from being wasted unnecessarily.

PIMAS manufactured its own windows until 1988, grown quickly due to its networks of manufacturers and dealers and, became a giant sector where thousands of people were employed. Pimas attracted new investments to the sector with all respective organizations and developments providing an opportunity for the employment of more than 100,000 people, creating a new sector called Pen Sector named after Pimapen.

The Camoda Glazing Systems launched by PIMAS in 2007 protect the locations where they are used from the adverse effects of weather conditions and, provide an aesthetic look without compromising the view. Its movable units suitable for opening in every direction transform the natural environments into enclosed living spaces.

All dealers for PIMAPEN and CAMODA with a number of sales points located in many places throughout Turkey are responsible for and conscious of being a leader with productions and applications under such conditions supervised by PIMAS.
