KASKTAŞ is proud of its lengthy history and is a well-established company, development of which dates back to 1957, coinciding with the foundation of its parent company, ENKA İnşaat ve Sanayi A.Ş., which is currently one of the world’s top general contracting companies. Originally known as ENKA Piling Group, KASKTAŞ’s debut was heralded by the successful completion of its first contract, the construction of the İstinye Bridges on piled foundations. In 1975, after years of rapid growth, the ENKA Piling Group was renamed KASKTAŞ.
Since its inception, KASKTAŞ was conceived to compete and succeed in the international arena. Thanks to its fully owned equipment and its successful management and experienced staff, KASKTAŞ has distinguished itself domestically and internationally by closely following developments in geotechnical engineering and advancing its know-how and capabilities accordingly. Today KASKTAŞ is not only the leading geotechnical engineering company in Turkey, it is a leader in its foreign markets as well.

Its initial contracts were in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries, and later it expanded its project experience into the CIS and Russia. Since early in the new millennium, KASKTAŞ has further expanded into Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine, Bosnia Herzegovina, Libya, Djibouti, Albania and Algeria.
