Truma, the leading European RV component supplier and recipient of the "Top 100" award for the most innovative SMEs in Germany, has entered the North American market and now offers "more comfort on the move" in the US. Truma opened an office in Elkhart, Indiana in August 2013. With our office and warehouse in Elkhart, we are right in the heart of the American RV business and close to important OEM customers.
The company was founded in 1949 in Germany and named after U.S. President Harry S. Truman. With the Marshall Plan for economic recovery after 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. 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, maneuvering assistants and gas supply in the RV. 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.
