|Core business:||Tatra is becoming the world leader in manufacturing of heavy duty trucks for special civil and military applications in primarily off-road conditions of difficult terrain and of extreme climates.
Tatra’s three subsidiaries, consisting of foundry, forging and tool & stamping operations, continue their profitable expansion by external customer growth while continuing to furnish Tatra trucks with high quality specialized Tatra components.
The history of Tatra dates back to 1850, when it was founded as a family owned carriage and buggy business. Today, the firm’s core product is a truck distinguished by a uniquely engineered design and chassis solution consisting of a centre tubular support, no frame, and independent half axle suspension on all wheels. This unique system makes the truck particularly effective as a vehicle for use under off-road and in rough terrain conditions.
The trucks have the additional significant advantage of combined utility, thus are able to adjust to both on-road as well as off-road conditions. The company maintains ISO 9001 certification and Military certification and its subsidiaries also possess necessary OEM quality certifications as required for their international automotive and industrial customers. Tatra employs 2,300 people at its Koprivnice location.
