From mid-July, EvoBus (UK) will become Daimler Buses UK, and its service centres, previously known as BusWorld Home, will be renamed Daimler Buses Service Centres. CEO of Daimler Buses Till Oberwörder said: “With EvoBus, we have been very successful for almost three decades and we are proud of that. We are now looking forward to a new chapter as Daimler Buses GmbH – and we have a lot in store for ourselves: we want to lead the transformation of our industry to emission-free mobility and win over customers and talent. The new name will help us achieve this because operating under this brand will mean we won’t have to do much explaining.”

Parent company, EvoBus GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daimler Buses segment at Daimler Truck, will be renamed Daimler Buses GmbH, helping to unify the brand’s awareness throughout all of its business units. The umbrella EvoBus brand was created after the merger of Mercedes-Benz Omnibusse with the Kässbohrer Setra brand 28 years ago. Today, it has a workforce of about 10,000 and 13 subsidiaries throughout Europe.
