Tony Mongiovi, TEMSA's NE Regional Manager, said: "All of us at TEMSA are excited about this coach for many reasons. It's a privilege to work with a company that has a reputation for quality like A Yankee Line. Their commitment to providing superior service is evident in the way they designed and specified this coach. We at TEMSA are proud of the fact that we got to 'show off' our versatility, and in the midst of a worldwide slowdown, it's great to see an operator like A Yankee Line investing in the future of luxury motorcoach transportation."
"Our TS35 model is among the essential players in the US motor coach/travel segment and it stands out in the market as a very comfortable product available in dimensions ideal for smaller customer segments as well as for its robustness and low operating cost. Our alliance with A Yankee Line, one of the most powerful players in the market since 2013, is very valuable to us. Today, we are once again pleased because they have chosen TEMSA," added Mongiovi.
Key factors that make TEMSA a successful actor worldwide is our ability to quickly adapt to our customers' needs with our robust R&D center and technological advancements and our capacity to launch tailor-made products in the market. We are on a fast-growth track in the US market and have been continuously renewing our product range. With the success we have achieved, we have set new goals for the upcoming period. Our electric vehicles are ready for mass production, and we will see them soon on the roads in different parts of the US," said Fatih Kozan, Country Director, TEMSA North America.
