TÜLOMSAŞ is one of our well-established companies. TÜLOMSAŞ has always been ambitious. Not today, he has put forward his claim with the Revolutionary Car. When TÜLOMSAŞ made the claim about the revolution car, we would have talked about world brand cars and world brand planes if our country managers and country administrators believed as much as they did. Today, TÜLOMSAŞ is making engines in the railway sector. ”
"In Turkey, as in Eskisehir, tülomaş will do in High Speed Rail," said Minister Arslan, his speech quoted the belief that the TULOMSAS worker continued:
“As I said, if the worker believes, all he has to do is support us. Here, while the new 96-speed train sets for her, to come to our country's particular context of industrial cooperation programs and technology specifications have put on using High Speed Trains in Turkey. We will take the top 20 from the outside, then step by step TÜLOMSAŞ will take more place in production and the last 16 will be 100 percent itself. However, we are not satisfied with this. Apart from that, after we bring that technology and become High Speed Train, we will make the High Speed Train ourselves, both nationally and locally, and we will not be content with using it in our country. We will export to the geography we originate from our country, even to all parts of the world. ”
Minister Arslan stated that TÜLOMSAŞ, which has made many locomotives until today and exported to many countries, has recently produced a new 6-cylinder, national and domestic diesel engine called TLM6V185. R&D engineers of TÜLOMSAŞ were also made by workers. He successfully passed all the tests. TÜLOMSAŞ will now produce this in series. Once we provide an order, once a week, when the order density increases, it will be capable of producing engines every 3 days. Like this tank engine, it has become a synergy for our defense industry. We will not only develop a local product, but we will also contribute billions of dollars. We want to be global in this sector. At TÜLOMSAŞ, we produce engines that will appeal to the world, serve the world, compete with the world. I would like to thank our President, Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, our Prime Minister, Mr. Binalı Yıldırım, for not believing us to support us because they believe in us. ”
