Attend IT, trading as RedRoutemaster, has outgrown its first operating base after four years and has completed its move into a new site now known as RedRoutemaster Brentford Dock Rd Garage.

RedRoutemaster’s old location is under threat of redevelopment and like many smaller operators in Greater London it struggled to find a suitable new location, but thanks to the support lobbying led by the local chamber of commerce they have managed to secure a new larger site complete with a full functioning office building which fronts the high street.

The move has also allowed the group, which also has an IT division, to move its head office and all other operating sites to one central location.

The facilities are a major upgrade and will allow the RedRoutemaster’s team to continue to grow the business with its focus on the traditional vintage wedding hire market, as well as corporate, promotional and other new markets the business is developing.

Adam Shailes, Managing Director, said: “It will allow us to continue to offer a by-gone traditional experience of vintage bus travel to the young and old. It will also help us to restore more Routemasters and finally as Brentford is Brilliant for Business allows us to support the community we feel very proud to be a part of.”

Martin Detheridge, of London Bus for 4 Hire commented; “We take pleasure in being experts at restoring and maintaining Routemasters buses beyond the industry operating standard. Although keeping vehicles designed in 1954 on the road is a challenge, the beauty of the design and the practicality they have, make it worthwhile.”
