Irizar UK has secured an order for three i6 integral coaches from Ellisons Travel, which supplies half the Premiership football team coaches.

The Merseyside-based corporate specialist is keeping the exact specification under wraps until Euro Bus Expo, when one of the three will be on show.

“We are genuinely thrilled that Ellisons has come to us with its latest vehicle order,” said Irizar UK’s Commercial Director Steve O’Neill. “Coach operators throughout the UK will know Ellisons’ reputation for buying only the best coaches in the market for their high-end contract work.

“Ellisons’ team has been to see Irizar Group’s cutting-edge factory and will have done its homework before deciding to buy from Irizar UK. We are confident that the coaches we supply will match or beat the high standards Ellisons sets for itself because we share that commitment to high quality.”

Irizar i6 Integral is built to order at the Ormaiztegi plant in Northern Spain, though the company also has factories in Brazil, Mexico, Morocco, India and South Africa between them employing around 3,300 people. The Spanish headquarters is also home to Creatio – the Irizar design studio which is working on the next generation of passenger transport, whether coach or bus.

“We are looking forward to creating and delivering Ellisons’ new coaches, and are particularly pleased that one of them should be at Euro Bus Expo for other operators to see,” said Steve. “The standard of service we offer Ellisons is the same as we offer to all our customers, and is continually being improved.”
