TEMSA GLOBAL A.S. was founded in 1968 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.
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 different countries of the world (Germany, France, Italy, Spain,...), under the management of Temsa Europe. Temsa has obtained 7% of market share in its segment in Europe.
Of the 1000 buses produced every year, 75% are exported.
TEMSA AR-GE ve Teknoloji (Temsa Research&Development Center) is a branch of TEMSA Global that is responsible of new vehicle production and technology development.
