Altinay Pipe Co. Ltd. was founded in Eskisehir, Turkey in 1964 by Necdet Altinay, then 23 years old, as a small meerschaum carving workshop. Altinay carved his first meerschaum pipe at 14 years of age. A master carver, Altinay has trained other carvers of repute, including Hüseyin Şekercioğlu, who trained under him in 1976.

Altinay sells pipes for export made by a number of carvers in their own workshop. They currently produce the Rattray's line of meerschaum pipes as well.
