Show was a huge success for Irizar UK
Euro Bus Expo 2014 was the busiest and best show since launch in 2011, says Irizar UK, after exhibiting on the 125th anniversary of parent company Irizar Group.
“It was an incredible show for us,” said Commercial Director Steve O’Neill. “We took the biggest single order in our three-years of trading during the show, and have had a mountain of enquiries from new and existing customers.
“On behalf of all of our team, I would like to thank everyone who came to see us, and gave such a warm welcome to our new 10.8-metre i6 integral midicoach. We are, of course, particularly proud of our association with Ellisons Travel and their commitment to buy a further ten i6s from us, but any show is all about meeting us and seeing what we have to offer.
“So we would like to offer a genuine and heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the trouble to visit the stand and look at the vehicles.”
Sales Director Ian Hall added his thanks: “We were able, in Irizar Group’s 125th year, to celebrate the 125th coach from Irizar UK by presenting an engraved decanter to Stewarts Coaches of Reading, a customer who has shown great faith in our integral coaches and in our aftersales back-up.
“I have been in this business for a long time, and I cannot remember having a more exhausting show! It was fantastic to see so many coach operators, many old friends, to give them a taste of our complete commitment to supplying profitable coaches.”
Highlights at the show included:
- Ellisons Travel added to an existing order for three i6 integral coaches with a further TEN, to be delivered during 2015
- The launch of the 10.8-metre, 43-seat i6 integral midicoach
- The celebration of Irizar UK’s 125th new coach, a 13.2 -metre tri-axle i6 integral for Stewarts Coaches of Reading
- Additional sales of coaches agreed at the show, to be announced soon to the Press and on the Irizar UK website
