Truma – More comfort on the move
Truma, the leading European RV component supplier and recipient of the award “Top 100” most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany, has entered the North American market and now offers “more comfort on the move” in US. In August 2013, Truma opened an office in Elkhart, Indiana:
825 East Jackson Blvd
Elkhart, IN 46516
1 (855) 55-TRUMA
With our office and warehouse in Elkhart, we are right in the heart of American RV business and close to important OEM customers.
The company was founded in 1949 and named after U.S. President Harry S. Truman. Through the Marshall Plan for economic recovery following the end of World War II, President Truman made it possible for Germany to become industrialized. That’s why in Truman’s honor, the company founder Philipp Kreis called his business Truma.
Truma GmbH & Co. KG, Germany
Almost every camper in Europe knows the Truma brand because we have been supplying convenient accessories for caravans and motorcaravans since the company was founded in 1949 by Philipp Kreis. We developed the “first officially recognised caravan heater” in 1961, therefore making it possible for the first time to consider winter camping.
Today, Truma is still an internationally successful family-run company based in Putzbrunn near Munich that develops, produces and markets products from one single source.
The Truma product range includes heating and air conditioning systems, through to hot water generators and maneuvering systems for caravans. Gas pressure regulators and power supply products round off our extensive product range. All of our products in all product areas are among the highest performing in the market. It is no coincidence that the trade press regularly votes Truma as the best accessory brand of the year.
Our search for innovative solutions continues. Approximately 500 Truma employees are enthusiastic campers themselves and not only develop products; they also use them. It is this passion and identification with the company that plays a major role in the Truma brand's success and allows us to look forward to a promising future.
