Our story has launched by our founder Ruşen Dündar.

It is Mr. Dündar’s success story who is aiming to solve common farmer problems…

Years before our establishment, Ruşen Dündar was a new mechanical engineer in his middle 20’s. He was a farmer son who likes both mechanics and farming. When he was a teenager, his family encourage him to leave the village for being well-educated person. In this way, Mr. Dündar left his village for getting better education.

He says “my father (r.i.p.) told me: “Be whatever you want. If you want to be a farmer, be a well-educated farmer”  

After his studies, he realized significant issue in his country’s common farming methods.

He has seen that all the crop residues get burned by farmers after harvesting season. Stubble burning was very common process in the country. After realizing it is disaster for soil, soil lives and crop yield. He made exhaustive researches and visited numerous technologically developed countries for finding a solution.

After his researches, he combined the advantage of being mechanical engineer and coming from a farmer family.

When he is done with his researches, he has established “Dündarlar Makina” (Toscano brand’s manufacturer company) with the support of his family. And he launched “Shredder machine” project! So, his dream manufacturing adventure is eventually started!

After sweaty months and sleepless nights, he successfully completed his dream “Shredder Project” with his team!

 When project is completed, he has received extremely positive feedbacks from farmers, politics and media platforms.  He and his team caused to save billions of lives and he became an inspirational leader for the industry. He has rewarded by many organizations and also past prime minister for his environment-friendly contributions.

And it was only the beginning, Toscano company’s success story started after accomplishing shredder project.

For first 15 years of company foundation, he has usually worked 12-14 hours a day.

He was the team leader of R&D department and he has given huge importance for continuous improvement. In this way, the company has brought numerous more innovations to agricultural machinery manufacturing sector until today. Succesfuly achieved projects assured farmers’ crops to be more fertile and created dozens of follower manufacturers.

His oldest son says “…I rarely remember those days, I rarely see his face because he was always late. Some busy nights he used to sleep in the company. However, I never complain about it. I’m thankful for him.”

Today, we produce for world farmers with over 300 precious team members and Mr. Dundar is still the chairman of executive team.
