Wrightbus to head Down Under on sales drive

Wrightbus’ visit to Australia follows New Zealand the previous week

Wrightbus International – the international arm of Wrights Group – is to attend two key industry events for the first time – the Bus and Coach Association Conference in Dunedin, New Zealand (27-30 September), and the Australia Bus and Coach Show 2016 (5-6 October) at the Sydney showground.

In New Zealand, Wrightbus will give visitors the chance to view the 11.5m StreetLite Max, which will be present on an outside display.  Moving on to Australia the following week, the company will showcase the 8.8m and 10.8m StreetLite buses.

John McLeister, Wrightbus International MD, says: “As part of our drive to increase our international presence and market share, we have recently established a new partnership to support our activities across the Australasia region with Patico Automotive PTY Ltd.

“Moving forward, Patico Automotive will support us with our endeavours in both Australia and New Zealand, with a particular focus on the StreetLite range, covering four variant products with the 8.8m, 9.5m, 10.8m and 11.5m length vehicles.

“We are very much looking forward to exhibiting in both countries as well as to meeting with members of the coach and bus community and doing business with customers in these markets.”
