Baumot receives a new order from Great Britain. This one comes from Stagecoach Yorkshire. 35 buses are to be converted. The contract is worth £ 600,000. The retrofitting is to take place this year and next.
Stagecoach’s fleet includes around 400 buses. The company carried 37 million passengers last year.
Stefan Beinkämpen, CEO of Baumot, on the British order: “We have already successfully retrofitted buses with Stagecoach in the past. The fact that we have now also received this order is evidence of a high level of customer satisfaction and shows that we have come through the lockdown in Great Britain and that business is picking up speed again as planned. “
Due to new funding, Beinkämpen sees good opportunities for Baumot in Scotland too. There, the British government is making available GBP 9 million for retrofitting work on buses.
Stefan Beinkämpen comments: “The British government has recognized that clean air in cities is a key factor in reducing healthcare costs. That is why measures to improve air quality are currently being massively promoted. A very important pillar here is the reduction of emissions by retrofitting existing vehicles. We are now known across the UK market for our products and first class service. Therefore, I also expect that we will continue to benefit from the current and upcoming funding programs. “
