About us

Our successful story began in 1999. At that time, cooperation began between Cherkasy Bus JSC (it was a part of Bogdan Corporation at that time) and world-class Japanese companies — the leader in the production of diesel engines and commercial vehicles ISUZU MOTORS LIMITED and its partner, NISSHO IWAI Corporation (now SOJITZ Corporation).

Our Japanese partners made a pilot supply of ISUZU NQR71 trucks. However, the market did not take this certainly outstanding on the world market truck properly at first. The decision was taken to do a small bus design development on the efforts of Ukrainian specialists and to use ISUZU truck units for it. 

Many people remember how suddenly, as much as unusual and unexpectedly high-quality new Bogdan buses based on ISUZU components literally broke into the Ukrainian market. At that time, large buses like Icarus have long been obsolete, new trolleybuses and trams didn’t arrive either, therefore, passengers had minibuse

s at their service — small, cramped and not very safe minibusses of the secondary market, or new ones, such as the Gazelle.

Whereas, in 2000-2001 little more than a hundred new busses based on ISUZU were sold, then in 2002 almost half a thousand, and in 2003 – 1188. The same year, our company began to sell ISUZU trucks themselves (at the beginning it was the same NQR71, then NQR70 and NQR75 were added. Now the NPR75 and NQR90 are analogs of those flagships ISUZU models in our market, and now this is only a small part from the list of trucks that are constantly expanding). 

Over the years, consumers of almost all the countries that once made up the USSR and not only got to know about them but also became fond of them.

Since that time, comfortable, maneuverable and high-quality small-class buses based on ISUZU components are consistently leaders in passenger transportation in Ukraine. Now we call it ATAMAN. In 2011 the Cherkasy Bus JSC withdraw the Bogdan Corporation from and the brand was rebranded soon. In total, more than 20 thousand buses and about 2,200 trucks were produced and sold.  

The success of the automotive manufacturer couldn’t be possible without proper distribution activities.  Distributors of our group of companies are participating and take responsibilities for a wide range of duties — from sundry delivery including components (mostly Japanese ISUZU components), supply chain, production, and marketing budget, till after-sale support of the customers of ISUZU-ATAMAN. The uninterrupted supply of spare parts, training, and technical support for users is also their area of responsibility.

Today, KOMTRANSKOMPLECT LLC is an authorized distributor of ISUZU trucks, ISUZU D-Max pickups and authentic spare parts for all trucks, buses, and pickups.  ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE PrJSC is an authorized distributor of ATAMAN buses based on ISUZU power components and ISUZU trucks. 

ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE PrJSC is a successor of the Japanese-Ukraine joint-stock venture called ‘Isuzu Automobile Company, Ukraine’, which was founded in 2006 riding on the wave of triumph entry of the ISUZU based product to the Ukrainian and neighboring markets. At that time the share of both sides, the Japanese and Ukrainian were equal.   

In 2018 in order to optimize the business process, Japanese shareholders decided to sell their share to the Ukrainian member of the joint-venture.  Thus, the company has got its modern new name — ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE.

Over the past 20 years, the united system of a manufacturing plant, distributor and authorized dealers and service stations has been created. The aim of the system is to identify, study and completely fulfill the needs of the clients of the commercial market providing quality modern and systematic ISUZU-ATAMAN branded service.
