Orders flood in for Irizar UK
At the exhibition, Worksop-based Irizar UK announced orders for five coaches from commuter operator Centaur and a further four coaches for Golden Boy. But further fleet orders have been confirmed from The Kings Ferry, Stewarts of Reading and Ellisons, plus others.
Stewarts of Reading has confirmed its faith in the Irizar Integral product with an order for no fewer than eight i6s, while Ellisons has ordered four of the class-leading luxury i8 Integrals – the biggest single order for this premium model so far.
The Kings Ferry has opted for two i6s and two i8s. Doigs of Glasgow has confirmed an order for two i6s, and Glastonbury-based Avalon Coaches has put its marker down for two i6 Integrals, with the option on a third. Goldline has also ordered two i6 coaches.
Additionally, Irizar UK has orders for single i6s from Chandlers Coaches, Blakes of Tiverton, Kings of Colchester, Mint Coaches, Ashley Travel, Olympia and Chambers Coaches in Ireland. Completing the picture is an order for an i4 Integral from customer Aintree Coaches.
“We are delighted that so many operators have come to us to update their fleets, and in particular that so many high-profile operators have returned to us having been pleased with the Integral coaches they already run,” said Business Development Director Julie Hartley. “That they endorse the Irizar Integral range and our aftersales service in this way is a source of great pride.”
