In what Epsom Coach Group has described as a ‘unique arrangement’, the RATP Groupowned operator has teamed up with EvoBus to stock parts for the firm’s increasing Mercedes- Benz and Setra fleet. Parts will be available 24/7 from the company’s large parts store, maximising availability of components for a fleet which seldom stops moving.
Ian Norman, who has responsibility for Epsom’s procurement expressed his delight with the new arrangements: “Our business is very much 24-hour operation, so it is important we have the necessary spare parts on the shelf ready to fit. Evobus resupply us every day and we can rely on them to have the right part at the right time, through continual analysis of our requirements.”
Marcus Watts, Director of Aftersales at Evobus UK, told CBW: “We are very pleased to further strengthen our relationship with Epsom Coaches Group. The fleet includes numerous examples of Mercedes-Benz Citaro and Sprinter, in addition to Setra S416GT-HD.”
