Founders of Elginkan Community are the Elginkan Family, which is one of the rooted families of Manisa province. The decedent Ahmet Elginkan, who is the member of a family, which migrated from Bulgaria to the homeland and has a commercial tradition, and the deceased Ümmehan Elginkan, whose family roots go back to Sarukhanids, led their children Ekrem and Cahit Elginkan getting a start in business together. Elginkan Community proceeds to the future today with the common sense, awareness and values inherited from their families.

"Esteemed Managers of Our Community,

My children,

I believe that you will have very important and accurate contributions for our Community in the meeting you will hold today. On this opportunity, I would like to remind you a belief of mine and my advice.

Do not waste anything. Waste is forbidden.

This belief of mine has a great share in principles lying at the bottom of our Community. This Community, which is growing with efforts of beliefs of all of us, and which has become holy for me, will become a Foundation and provide further contributions to our country.

I wish success in your works and give my love.."
