UK-based bus manufacturer Mellor foresees 2023 turnover to exceed £85M, with Bus Division expected to achieve an output of 900 units in 2023. Such growth has been underpinned by a 40% workforce growth since 2019. Mellor is ready to unveil its 9-meter and 12-meter models at Busworld Europe.

The impact of Mellor’s success resonates strongly in Sweden. A standout case study involves Mellor’s development of a custom product for Gothenburg’s demand response transport. A fleet of 46 vehicles underscores this accomplishment.

The expansion of distributor networks has amplified Mellor’s reach, while enhancing the aftersales team has enhanced the customer experience.  

A substantial investment of £15 million has been pivotal in yielding cutting-edge product development.

The company is committed to delivering bespoke solutions that address the unique requirements of different countries, reflecting adaptability and customer focus.
