As the largest industrial enterprise of Sivas, 78 has been operating for more than a year and in this process, almost every family is a bread gate. TÜDEMSAŞ has been the first to contribute to the development of the country's railways. Founded in steam locomotives and freight cars of 1939 for the maintenance and repair Turkey Railway Machines Industry Inc. (TÜDEMSAŞ) has improved itself in terms of technical infrastructure and facilities; 1953 produced the first cargo wagon and in the year 1961, BOZKURT, the first domestic steam locomotive of our country, was put into service.
TÜDEMSAŞ is the freight wagon production center of our country with its R & D activities and the new generation of freight wagons that it produced through these studies as it was yesterday.
Since its establishment, new cargo wagons have been produced in the vicinity of TUSEMAS 25. TÜDEMSAŞ, in the name of the 350 Vision and 2023 targets put forward by the state, in order to develop and expand the domestic and national railway industry; by encouraging the private sector to make new investments in Sivas and to create new employment areas for the people of the region.
Thanks to technological investments and system changes made in recent years, TÜDEMSAŞ has become a global company that competes with companies in Europe and presents competitive products recognized worldwide. In the last 3 year, we produce new generation platform and container transport wagons, fully automatic closed ore transport wagons and heated oil wagons; It has the lowest quality and minimum functional capacity of 2 and its highest functional characteristics in Europe as well as in our country and it has started to be preferred in both domestic and foreign freight transportation.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan made a public speech at XIVUM in 10 December 2017. Emphasizing that they place Sivas at the center of all railway networks, ı We are strengthening TÜDEMSAŞ for export as well as for the needs of our country. This is worthy for Sivas, which is the production center of the freight wagons of our country. Ir TÜDEMSAŞ, which follows the current developments in the railway sector on a global scale and closely and contributes a minimum of TL 10 million to the Sivas economy every month, increases its capacity and also aims to export.
On the other hand, with the existing infrastructure and know-how of the Company, it has the capability and capability to make a contribution to the National Defense Industry and National Automobile projects in case it is needed. However, the country and the region to meet the needs of increasing freight wagons at the point of lack of work and the country's freight wagon center in the direction of the task of becoming the locomotive TÜDEMSAŞ leaving the freight wagon industry and the automotive and defense industry will not be rational to be said.
