AKIA Turkey was founded by AKIA Hess Iran. This company is a collaborative effort between Hess from Switzerland and Iranian partners. The company built Hess-designed vehicles for the Iranian market and developed its own models. In 2013 the Turkish factory was established to serve the Turkish and neighbouring countries. Models initially available were the Ultra LF9, Ultra LF12 with Mercedes engines and the Ultra LF CNG low floor models. These models were shown at Busworld Turkey in 2014. Also available is a high-floor bus, the LF9. At Busworld Turkey 2016 the same models were shown, but with a newly designed front end, on the website called New Ultra LF9 and New Ultra LF12.
