Truma – The company at a glanceInternational success through innovation and passion

Almost every camper in Europe knows Truma. We have been marketing accessories for caravans and motor homes since Philipp Kreis established the company in 1949. In over 65 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. It also helps that many of our employees are also passionate campers: they not only develop products, they also use them. It is precisely this passion and identification that makes Truma successful.

What Truma stands for


Truma has been the leading specialist for caravan accessories for more than 65 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 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.

Product quality

Truma products are the most effective on the market – they are very reliable and extremely efficient. This explains why the trade press regularly rates Truma as the best accessory brand for heaters and manoeuvring systems.

Service quality

No matter whether you contact the help line or the Service Centre in Putzbrunn: all service staff are able to put themselves in the customer’s shoes and provide them with competent assistance. Truma service technicians with their service vehicles, travelling throughout Germany guarantee fast on-site help.

Customer proximity

No matter where you are: an extensive sales network of specialist dealerships and Service Partners ensures that you receive professional advice and can obtain spare parts, retrofit products and practical accessories regardless of your location. In more than 30 countries.


A friendly and informal working atmosphere and a social company culture are very important for Truma. This produces a strong feeling of identification among all of our employees – in production and in administration.


Caravanning and a passion for nature belong together. Therefore, environmentally conscious, sustainable action is firmly rooted in our company culture.
