In September 1985, the company was founded in a small shed on Alford Forest Road in Ashburton, with a focus on coaches and specialized vehicles.

From those early days the company has grown and changed, until now it employs 120 people from it's base in Rolleston, Canterbury. 

Our vision, to be at least five years ahead in design and innovation from other bus builders, drove us to believe that electric buses would be the way of the future.  We are now also involved in the hydrogen revolution and are proud of our success in this field.
