Kemal Yener is one of the secret heroes of Sakarya that we lost in a traffic accident during the month we passed. The first encounter with Kemal Yener was during the work of the Sakarya Machine Manufacturers' Association (SAMİB). Kemal Yener was the leader of a company that was the leader of the industry in Turkey like MKS with its unconventional leadership personality and achievements. I was one of the few people who could tell the right person in person's face without hesitation. I saw that I spoke with the same frequency in a short time with him. It was nice to share a lot of things. I recognize myself as one of the luckiest men in the world.
Kemal Bey was almost a doyen of the industry. Most people on their market knew and respected him. This Kemal Yener.Onun life started in 1956 in the town of Ayancik in Sinop. In 1968, the school ended in his hometown. In 1969 he went to Istanbul to study and study.
While working here, he continued to work at Maçka Evening Art School outside working hours. He studied technical drawing at the school.

In 1980, Kemal YENER started to manufacture marble cutting and wiping machines by repairing an italian marble wiping machine. It produced the first domestic marble cutting and wiping machines in Turkey. He became a partner in Köseoğlu Marble factory in Sakarya in 1988.
