Ilesbus UK: New premises for its new models

Ilesbsus UK’s new site is in Pyle, near junction 37 of the M4 motorway

Mini and midicoach dealership Ilesbus UK, which imports vehicles converted or bodied by Turkish builder Ilesbus, has moved to a 20,000ft2 facility in Pyle, South Wales, which is near to junction 37 of the M4.

It gives the dealer extensive parking and a building that houses a showroom, a workshop and a stores area.

Parts are held at Pyle for all models that Ilesbus UK sells. They extend from bespoke Mercedes-Benz Vito conversions, through Sprinter conversions to coachbuilt Iveco Daily-based midicoaches.

Its range will grow in coming months with a larger midi based on the Mercedes-Benz Atego chassis with a GVW of 12,000kg. The first left-hand drive example has been completed by Ilesbus and right-hand drive Atego chassis are at the Bursa plant.

The same body will also be mounted on an MAN TGL chassis. Ilesbus is also examining the TGE van with a view to offering minicoach conversions. The TGE extends to 5,500kg GVW.
