Bron: The Slovenia TimesTomos Mopeds Rolling Out of Koper Production Line Again
Business, 23 Nov 2013 / By STA, T. M.
Tomos has relaunched assembly of the internationally-renowned brand of mopeds at the Koper headquarters after a failed attempt to outsource production to Turkey. The plant is to produce 500 mopeds in the first month.
Tomos suspended moped assembly in Koper at the end of last year in order to focus solely on development and distribution of the Tomos brand.
However, the chosen Turkish partner was not in a position to provide end products of sufficient quality on time, so a decision was made to resume assembly in Koper until a new partner is found or the existing one meets Tomos's demands, the boss of Tomos dvokolesa Matjaž Kanduč has told the STA.
"During the time we noticed how much the market misses us. The demand is currently very strong. Fact is that at times of recession quality brands prosper," he says.
The company employed 12 new staff for the relaunch. At the moment it can finance the production of 500 mopeds a month, while the mid-term goal is 700, the level they want to keep at least in 2014.
Aside from moped for end users, Tomos also manufactures commercial two-wheeled vehicles intended for postal companies and other institutions.
Tomos's main market is Benelux, especially the Netherlands, as well as the markets of the former Yugoslavia, the US and Western Europe.
Tomos virtually has a monopoly in the supply of mopeds to the postal companies of former Yugoslavia, and also meets 60% of the Slovenian mail company's needs.
The range of products for private customers includes classic scooters, which are manufactured by Tomos's partner in the Middle East, and electric vehicles, which Kanduč says is the future.
The company has developed an electric moped in cooperation with the Šempeter company Letrika, which contributed the know-how in development of the electrical engine, and Tomos's owner Hidria.
The product is yet to see its production phase, with Kanduč regretting that the project has not received financial backing from the state, something that Tomos's competition benefits from.

Frame van 2006 of 2005 wat ik gekocht had nadat ik mijn frame uit 1999 verpest had bij achterbrugbuis in frame,Helaas is het lakwerk werkelijk waar bagger..
maar dat was bij mijn 2006 model ook zo...
Mijn S25 die ik in 1993 nieuw kocht had deze problemen niet..geen roest nergens.Dat ding heeft het 10 jaar vol gehouden door weer en wind zonder roestproblemen
Ik heb nu een 2009 Tomos Quadro estart beide spatborden en de achterbrug zijn rijp voor de spuiter omdat de lak er in hele vellen vanaf bladdert...helaas begint het frame ook op diverse plekken af te bladderen...Dit voorspelt niet veel goeds...Voor de rest starten en lopen..
Dat ding heeft amper buitenlucht gezien en heeft het meer en deel van zijn leven in de garage gestaan.....
