Scania Bus & Coach Open Day promotes broad range of products and services

Scania Bus & Coach is to hold an Open Day at its Worksop premises on Thursday 19 April, which all PCV operators are welcome to attend. The Open Day follows a similar event staged last year and will feature a range of Scania products plus a broad selection of services available from Scania and its dealers.

"We were overwhelmed at the response to last year's event, so the decision to repeat the experience in 2012 was an easy one to take," comments Tony Tomsett, Bus, Coach and Engine Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.  "The  Open Day offers an ideal opportunity for operators to discuss their needs and review our products and services in relaxed and social setting."

Two key Scania product ranges will be on show on the day:  The Scania OmniExpress and the Scania Irizar range of coaches. 

"These two ranges complement each other by providing vehicles for every coaching need," says Tony Tomsett.  "The fully-built-up Scania OmniExpress is an especially versatile and flexible option.  Available in choice of body lengths which can accommodate from 53 to 63 passengers plus driver and courier, the OmniExpress is a popular choice among operators large and small looking for high quality, high capacity vehicles.

"Regarding Scania Irizar vehicles, our two companies have a long-standing and strong relationship which has continued to develop and grow over the course of the many years.  This year has got off to a flying start for us, with upwards of 70 Scania Irizar vehicles already scheduled for delivery in 2012.  Among these are high profile operators such as Reliance Travel, which has taken 12 i6 models, Translink in Northern Ireland, which has opted for 35 i4s, and Terravision's new London-to-Stansted Airport operation, which will see seven i6s with front wheelchair lifts enter service later this year.  And continuing a now lengthy tradition, Guideline Coaches London Limited has once again specified a Scania Irizar PB coach to transport the England football squad."

Operators wishing to attend the Scania Bus & Coach Open Day are asked to contact 01909 500822 for further details.
