Founded in 1895, the fragrance and cologne company Rebul will open eight stores abroad by the end of this year, according to Kerim Muderrisoglu, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Rebul Sirketler Grubu. The company opened the first store abroad in Belgium in 2017 before it launched 21 stores in seven countries. “The number of stores will reach 29 abroad by the end of this year,” said Muderrisoglu. Rebul has recently set up a new plant with nine production lines in Cerkezkoy, where it has additionally employed 120 people. “A laboratory area of 1,000 square meters has been allocated for a new R&D center, to which we will allocate 1.5% of our turnover,” he added. Rebul aims to double its exports compared to last year.
