Alan Wilson is back at Beulas

Having been the prime mover in establishing Beulas in the UK coach market, Alan Wilson has renewed his acquaintance with the family-owned Spanish coachbuilder.

The former Leicester-based AW Group boss has been appointed Commercial Director for Beulas in the UK, coming out of retirement with the aim of promoting the company’s products and confirming a new sales outlet. .

Mr Wilson, 72, first brought Beulas into UK on Irisbus EuroRider chassis for the 1997 coaching season, building up sales that at one point accounted for 25% of the factory’s output.

Subsequently Beulas sales transferred to BASE, the Leyland-based dealership, which continues to market the range.

However, Mr Wilson told routeone: “I have set the ball rolling and we are looking to confirm a new dealership in time for the Euro Bus Expo show at the NEC, 4-6 November.”

Beulas has booked a stand at the show and a 13m tri-axle double-deck Jewel-bodied MAN [pictured] will take centre stage in a yet-to-be-announced UK operator’s livery.
