In general, such firms are medium sized and active in sectors such as textile, machinery, metal, chemicals, plastics and food. 18.000 employees are working in the First Organized Industrial Zone and a monthly avarage of 35,000,000 kWh power and 120.000m tons of water is consumed.

 

Second Organized Industrial Zone: It has been established on a 450 hectare land and spaces have been allocated for 277 industries, with 274 active firms. There are 28.000 employees, and a monthly avarage of 80.000.000 kWh power and 200.000m tons of water is consumed.


Third Organized Industrial Zone:  It has been planned pn 540 hectares of land more than 275 industries have requested for allocation to act in this zone, but 249 lots are available. There are 27.500 employees are working and a monthly avarage 110.000.000 kWh power and 250.000 tons of water is consumed.

Fifth Organized Industrial Zone: It has been established on a 11.000.000m2 and it is four times larger of first four zones in terms of hectares of land. Albeit a demand of three times more than present land, only 350 of this demand will be met. The allocation of land is expected to completed in a short time period


Nizip Organized Industrial Zone: It established in 1991 and number of parcels is 33. Infrastructure works have almost been completed. When the zone becomes active completely, approximately 1.500 person will be employed.


Gaziantep-Kilis Organized Industrial Zone Project: Due to the fact that Fifth Organized Zone could not meet the needs of investment demand, establishment of ‘Polateli-Şahinbey Organized Industry Zone’ has been planned on a 35.000.000 m2 land. Gaziantep Chamber of Industry, Regional Directorate of Gaziantep Organized Industry Zone and Kilis Governorship brought forward the proposal of establishment of a new organized industry zone as a joined venture of Gaziantep and Kilis to Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology. It will be the firts project in terms of associated structure of organized industry zone and it is possibly will be consolidated by transmission of highway located in between Gaziantep-Hassa to a high standard double highway.
