Truma Will Open First Sales and Service Center In October

Fri Sep 29, 2017

150669557357244.jpgELKHART, Ind. - Truma will open its first sales and service center in Lakeland, Florida in October 2017. Truma technicians will install, upgrade and service the Truma AquaGo hybrid instant water heater along with other products like the Truma Combi, a combination forced-air furnace and hot water heater.

These technicians will also be available to service RVs at owners’ homes and at nearby campgrounds. Due to the heavy concentration of RVers that travel in the Lakeland area each year, Truma decided to open a Sales and Service Center location to better serve its customers.

“The Truma AquaGo is the first hybrid instant water heater for RVs,” Truma North America Vice President of Business Development Mark Howlett says. “Its revolutionary design eliminates issues typically associated with first generation tankless water heaters, such as low flow and fluctuating temperatures. Many high-quality RV manufactures are installing the Truma AquaGo on their production lines, and many current RV owners would like to upgrade their existing RV water heater for a Truma AquaGo. However, dealers are very busy handling the increase of sales in the RV Industry, so we wanted to create an additional opportunity for RVers to get Truma products installed and serviced."

Since its founding in 1949, Truma has built up a quality service network throughout Europe and is continuing that tradition in North America.

“We are following the pattern of our headquarters in Germany and hiring Truma service technicians to support end users with Truma products in addition to our quality dealer network,” Truma North America President and CEO Gerhard Hundsberger says.

As a grand opening promotion, Truma will waive the installation fee for the first 50 customers who purchase the Truma AquaGo at the new service location and is taking appointments now.

The Truma Service Center is located at 3928 Anchuca Drive, Bay 13 & 14, Lakeland, FL 33811. For more information or to make an appointment, email service@trumacorp.com or call 863-225-1417.
