First new bus delivery completed

Wrightbus, based in Ballymena, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, has completed its first delivery of new buses following the firm’s acquisition in October by new owner Bamford Bus Company.

The bus manufacturer delivered the first 36 units of a 55-bus order to FirstGroup for use in Leeds, West Yorkshire, in a deal that is worth about £13 million.

The new owner expects a full production line to be back up and running in 2020.

Wrightbus chief executive Buta Atwal said it is ‘a clear signal of our intent to drive forward the Wrightbus business and grow the company’.
