Truma – The company at a glance

International success through innovation and passion

Truma Company

What Truma stands for

Truma UK was founded in April 1997, originally based in Burton-On-Trent, we have since relocated to Dove Valley Business Park, an accessible development off the A50 between Derby and Stoke. Truma UK is now an established branch of the Truma group, and products are transported across the network of UK dealers and manufacturers from Truma UK’s Head Office. Truma’s many years of experience working with caravans, motor homes, commercial vehicles and boats are reflected in high levels of technical expertise and high quality products. The large on-site warehouse allows Truma products to be packaged, picked and stored via one central division, offering prompt delivery and rapid distribution to all parts of the UK.

Truma GmbH & Co. KG

Truma has been marketing accessories for caravans and motor homes in Germany since Philipp Kreis established the company in 1949. In 75 years, Truma has developed into a successful international company that is still family-owned.

Back then, it all started with a gas lamp, which the company founder assembled himself in his living room. These days, Truma is a system supplier of heaters, air conditioning systems, hot water generators, manoeuvring assistants and gas supply in the caravan. Since the introduction of the Truma iNet System, digital networking has also become matter of course in everyday camping – and the search for innovative ideas continues every day.


Truma Product Quality

Truma has been the leading specialist for caravan accessories for 75 years. In 1961, we developed the “first officially recognized caravan heater”, which made winter camping possible for the first time. Camping would just not be the same without Truma products.


Truma Competence Truma has developed many innovations, thus setting new standards – for example the first liquid gas heater and the first manoeuvring assistant for caravans. Thanks to our practical research and development, we continuously introduce new and further developed products to the market.
