Karsan Crosses Continents!
A Strategic Partnership by
Karsan for the North America Market!
Karsan’s Authorized Distributor in Canada
is the Leading Expert Damera Corporation in the Bus Market!
Offering public transport solutions suited to the needs of the modern era in line with its vision to be one step ahead in the future of mobility, Karsan continues to take rapid strides. Supporting the transformation of the transportation infrastructure of several European cities with its electric product range and recording a lasting success, Karsan has taken an important step for the North America market as well. Within this scope, Karsan partnered with Damera Corp., the leading bus supplier and maintenance services provider in Canada. With the agreement, Damera Bus Sales Canada Corporation, a subsidiary of Mississauga Bus Group of Companies, a long-established company in the region, started to sell Karsan products and provide after-sales services with its widespread network as Karsan’s distributor in Canada. Karsan’s CEO Okan Baş said the following about the partnership, “We continue our global partnerships in North America with Canada in line with our corporate strategy. In this context, we signed a distributorship agreement with Damera. Right on the back of it, in August, we delivered our e-JEST buses, which we had showcased at ACT, the leading transportation technologies fair in the USA, to Damera. e-JEST is currently touring North America drawing great interest from potential customers. We also delivered our Autonomous e-ATAK bus, another member of our electric product family, to Michigan State University in the US to serve in its campus. Autonomous e-ATAK is expected to work as a full-time shuttle service carrying students, lecturers and other staff to and from the campus. With the introduction of the Karsan e-JEST buses, we aim to have our electrical product range make a true impact in the North American market in the coming period, and we continue our work at full speed.”
Providing public transportation solutions with its modern and technological product range, Karsan takes its export-oriented activities to North America. Keeping its product range up-to-date to become a global leader and recording significant success in sales with its electric buses in Europe, Karsan partnered with Damera Bus Sales Canada Corp., one of the leading bus companies in Canada. As part of the partnership, Damera, a subsidiary of Mississauga Bus Group of Companies, an experienced bus and transportation organization, has become Karsan’s authorized distributor in Canada. Boasting a widespread network in Canada with its expert personnel, Damera started to sell Karsan products and provide after-sales services.
Adding that they also set their sights on the North American Market after Europe, Karsan’s CEO Okan Baş said the following about the partnership, “We continue our global partnerships in North America with Canada in line with our corporate strategy. In this context, we signed a distributorship agreement with Damera. Right on the back of it, in the last August, we delivered our e-JEST buses, which we had showcased at ACT, the leading transportation technologies fair in the USA, to Damera. e-JEST is currently touring North America drawing great interest from potential customers. With the introduction of the Karsan e-JEST buses, we aim to have our electrical product range make a true impact in the North American market in the coming period, which continue our work at full speed.” Touching upon other company activities for the North America market, Baş continued, “We also delivered our Autonomous e-ATAK bus, another member of our electric product family, to Michigan State University in the US to serve in the campus. Still doing trial runs, Autonomous e-ATAK is expected to work as a full-time shuttle service carrying students, lecturers and other staff to and from the campus. In the past weeks, the first test drives were held with the students and we got very positive reactions. At Karsan, we are proud to offer a driverless experience in real traffic conditions at the other end of the world.”
