Our service building, which has an architecture that can be a symbol of Afyonkarahisar, also attracts attention with its environmentalist aspect.
Afyonkarahisar Chamber of Commerce and Industry Service Building was built between 2011-2013 and was put into service in 2014. Afyonkarahisar Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which was built with an aesthetic and architectural planning that attracts attention in the region, instead of a flat structure like traditional architectural works, comes to the fore in Afyonkarahisar.
