14 VDL FUTURA FOR TWERENBOLD: A CROWN ON 30 YEARS OF COOPERATION
The Swiss coach operator Twerenbold Reisen AG has recently placed on order for 14 VDL FHD2 Futura. The vehicle fleet of Twerenbold now consists of 62 coaches, of which 60 from VDL Bus & Coach.
The VDL Futuras will be put into service from the Twerenbold home base in Baden-Rütihof, starting in mid-April. The complete order is made up of eleven vehicles in Royal class, and three in Comfort class. The Royal class coaches have a length of 12.2 metres and offer 30+1+1 seats. The Royal class, designed by Twerenbold itself, has helped the company set the standards for coach travel in Switzerland. The class is hallmarked by a deluxe 2+1 layout and a seat separation of no less than 90 centimetres.
Two of the Comfort class coaches measure 13.9 metres in length (56+1+1 seats). The third, a VDL Futura FHD2, measures 12.9 metres in length, with a 48+1+1 seating layout.
If it is up to owner and board chairman Karim Twerenbold, the cooperation that started way back in 1992 may continue for many years to come. “We opt for quality, reliability and loyalty. Values also shared by VDL. Like VDL, we too are a family-owned business. Our core values match. Both companies put their people first, something I consider particularly important. The people at VDL Bus & Coach are easy to approach and they have an open mind for improvement and that means a continuous striving for innovation.”
