After several weeks of having to restrict its operations due to the coronavirus crisis, Truma is now resuming production with a small team to support OEMs and dealers.
Truma’s CEO Alexander Wottrich said: “We are in continual contact with manufacturers and dealers, evaluating the current situation and gradually adapting in line with new developments.”
In order to resume production, Truma has implemented an extensive range of measures and hygiene standards, including an obligation for all employees to wear a mask: “This enables us to satisfy all the requirements of the Robert Koch Institute and protect our workforce as best as possible,” explained Alexander Wottrich.
“Due to the fact that appropriate personal protective equipment is not always available in the health and care sector, we are donating a large proportion of the masks we receive, first of all several thousand pieces to nursing homes in the Munich area and healthcare institutions. We hope that we will soon receive more masks, since demand in the care sector is still very high,” he added.
Truma Service team is working from home so that it can continue to operate despite restricted operations and be there for its customers.
Truma has been marketing accessories for caravans and motorhomes in Germany since Philipp Kreis established the company in 1949. In 70 years, Truma has developed into a successful international company that is still family-owned.
The Truma business 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.
