Karsan continues to export the Menarinibus brand buses that are manufactured in Bursa under the license of Industria Italiana Autobus (IIA), of which Karsan owns a 5% share. Recently, Karsan became the brand that came out victorious in the tender opened by the Sibiu Municipality in Romania for 18-meter-long buses. Within the scope of the tender, a deal was signed for the delivery of 17 Menarinibus Citymood buses. Muzaffer Arpacıoğlu (Deputy General Manager for Commercial Affairs), Emre Hür (Karsan Exports Area Manager), Hakan Öztaş (Karsan Industrial Sales Manager), Dan Caprariu (General Coordinator of Tursib) and representatives from the Sibiu Municipality were present in the signature ceremony held in Romania. 

 

Announcing that 17 buses of the Menarinibus Citymood model will be delivered to the Sibiu Municipality by October as part of this contract, Muzaffer Arpacıoğlu, the Deputy General Manager for Commercial Affairs, stated “We are moving at full steam with the exports of the Menarinibus brand on behalf of IIA, of which we are a partner, along with original vehicles under the Karsan brand. Menarinibus Citymood, the 18m articulated bus that we will deliver to the Sibiu Municipality, is also preferred in Turkey as it is an eye-catching model with its superior design, technological features and high passenger capacity. I am hoping both sides will benefit from the deal.”
