FARIBAULT, Minn. — TEMSA Global and CH Bus Sales, Inc. recently signed an agreement to extend their exclusive distributor partnership.
Since February 2010, CH Bus Sales has been the exclusive distributor of TEMSA motorcoaches in the U.S., and more recently in Canada, offering sales, service, and after-sales support. Until recently, CH Bus Sales offered two mid-size models to U.S. operators, the TEMSA TS 30 and TEMSA TS 35; now with the newly introduced full-size coach, the TEMSA TS 45, CH is able to offer a more diverse product offering to the U.S. market.
Dincer Celik, general manager at TEMSA Global, said, “We are pleased with the progress CH Bus Sales has made in this market the last few years and look forward to a long term relationship.” TEMSA and CH are the only providers of integral monocoque manufactured coaches in three different lengths, 30-, 35-, and 45-feet.
TEMSA Global, one of Turkey’s leading automotive companies, manufactures and distributes buses and coaches with its own brand in domestic and international markets. TEMSA Global has a total annual production capacity of 11,500 vehicles in one shift at its Adana Production Plant, comprised of 4,000 buses and coaches, and 7,500 light trucks.
TEMSA sells its products to 64 countries in addition to Turkey. In France alone, more than 3,000 TEMSA branded buses are on the roads. The company’s major markets in Europe include Germany, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Lithuania and the Benelux region; meanwhile, TEMSA strengthens its market share in the U.S. through increased product diversification.
In addition to distributing TEMSA coaches, CH Bus Sales offers full service after-sales support, warranty assistance, and parts availability. Administrative headquarters are based out of Faribault, Minn., with full-service facilities and customer delivery locations in Orlando, Fla.; Las Vegas, Nev.; and Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. The company looks to expand to other locations in the Northeast and West Coast next year. Bob Foley, president and CEO of CH Bus Sales, said, “TEMSA manufactures affordable but great quality products. It has been a privilege to work with them these past few years.” CH Bus Sales is focused on providing high-quality and reliable products and support to U.S. operators.
