Railways are a National Issue
We had the opportunity to see TÜDEMSAŞ's capabilities and capabilities closely. TÜDEMSAŞ entered 76.Year, almost a generation came here. He witnessed all kinds of developments. However, unstable periods, coalition periods, unfortunately, these factories could not be given due diligence. Investments could not be made. Therefore, the wagons needed by our railways could not be supplied. Railways should bear the burden of this country, while the country had to bear the burden of railways.
When we took office in 2003; At that time, our Prime Minister and current President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan took the railways as a national issue. On the one hand, he was interested in the existing rail lines, on the other hand he wanted us to bring the high-speed train to our country and make the 40 annual dream come true.
We Renewed 85 Percent of Our Railway Network
Today we have a high-speed train. We also renewed 11 percent of our existing 85 thousand kilometers network on railways. We have brought our electricity and signal lines to 15 percentages, which are at 40 percentages. Now, Turkey on railways, the railways every day, day by car is becoming self-sufficient.
TUDEMSAS Standing Standing
We have taken a significant distance in localization rates. For example; TÜDEMSAŞ has an annual turnover of around 400 million, of which 160 million is supplied by 5 subsidiary companies established in Sivas. Thus, TÜDEMSAŞ contributes not only to its employees but also to employment in Sivas. Sivas is transferring serious resources to the local economy. How did it come to this? One of the most important reasons for this is 3. One, resource management. Second, human management. Third, time management. When these three principles were placed among the priorities, this century-old factory renewed itself according to the changing conditions of the day. He said, ım I am not destroyed, I am standing ”. I would like to thank to all the managers who contributed to this point, to the General Manager, to the other levels, to our workers and engineers. In particular, I would like to thank Sivas local authorities, MPs and solution partners in Sivas. Thanks to your support and the support given by Sivas residents, our factory has reached a level that can produce not only the railroad needs but also the world standards.

This means that; Wagon, locomotive, other rail fasteners, subway vehicles, etc. About these, within a few years, our country needs 3-5 times more wagons than today's need. Therefore, we know that such factories, such as TÜDEMSAŞ, TÜLOMSAŞ, TÜVASAŞ, will undertake important tasks. Accordingly, our preparation is complete. All the necessary needs can be met here.
