TEMSA Global, Turkey's largest bus manufacturer, has held talks with Dongfeng Motor Corp. about introducing the Chinese company's vehicles into Turkey.
In late July, a TEMSA delegation, led by the President Tamer Unlu, visited Dongfeng and held talks with Dongfeng's international business department, according to information released by Dongfeng.
During the talks, Unlu expressed hope that TEMSA can import Dongfeng's vehicles into Turkey, according to Dongfeng. The plans will start with Dongfeng's medium- and heavy-duty trucks and then expand to include passenger vehicles.
Additional details about the talks are not available.
Dongfeng, a major state-owned company headquartered in the central China city of Wuhan, is China's largest truckmaker. It operates joint ventures with global automakers including Honda Motor Co., Nissan Motor Co. and PSA/Citroen-Peugeot, and also produces its own vans and cars.
Aside from buses, TEMSA builds light trucks and cars as well as construction equipment in Turkey. It also distributes vehicles in Turkey for Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and Japanese construction equipment maker Komats.
