MELLOR HAS FIRST AGREEMENT ABOUT EXPANDING ITS EUROPEAN NETWORK
She has signed a new distributorship agreement with E-Bus of the Netherlands, which also includes the Belgium and Luxembourg markets. The Benelux partner E-Bus is a subsidiary of Rewin BV which includes Kenbri Fire Fighting and Emoss Mobile Systems. E-Bus will be providing all sales, aftersales, service and spare parts for Mellor customers within the region.
Following similar deals covering Scandinavia, Germany and Austria, the latest agreement gives E-Bus exclusive sales rights for the Benelux region on Mellor’s left hand drive vehicles, including the Orion E fully low floor all electric small bus and Strata low floor models. There are plans to market the Tucana II once the new entity is fully operational. There is a definite gap in the Benelux market for small buses with both diesel and electric drive trains, said John Randerson, Managing Director for Mellor.
The Orion E is the perfect fit for operators looking for smaller vehicles with the benefit of zero emissions.
Orion’s latest distributorship means that the company now has sales and aftermarket representation in eight European countries - Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg meaning she is now very well positioned to penetrate the European small bus market, a strategy which she officially launched at Busworld Europe.
