History[edit]

TEMSA (Termomekanik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş.) Global was founded in 1968 by Sabancı Holding to supply steel to the construction industry. Manufacture of coaches began in 1984 with licensing and distribution agreements from Mitsubishi Motors. Service bus products were introduced in 1987.

The products have their own bodywork and include Mitsubishi Fuso, MAN, DAF, Cummins and Caterpillar engines and parts that meet the European emission standards (Euro4, Euro5).

Since 2000, a full range of coaches has been developed for Western European markets, utilizing MAN engines and axles and ZF transmissions. TEMSA became independent and flexible in using different engines with its own developments and started carrying out tailor-made production. A subsidiary, TEMSA Europe, has been established in Belgium and several rep offices have been established in 46 different countries of the world (Germany, France, Italy, Spain,...), under the management of Temsa Europe. Temsa has obtained over 7% of market share in its segment in Europe. Of the 1,000 buses produced every year, 75% are exported.

Temsa is represented by three models in the US.[2] The TS 30, TS 35 and TS 45 are motor coaches of 30, 35 and 45 ft respectively.

TEMSA AR-GE ve Teknoloji Merkezi (Temsa Research & Development Center) is a branch of TEMSA Global that is responsible of new vehicle production and technology development. In June 2019, TEMSA was purchased by True Value Capital Partners of Switzerland.[3]
