Three new vehicles for Brent Thomas

Welsh tour operator Brent Thomas Coaches has taken delivery of two new integral Volvo B11R 9700 coaches as well as a B8R SC5 as the latest additions to its 15 strong fleet.

The company is a long-established Volvo Bus customer and has once again turned to Volvo for a fleet expansion following the purchase of a B11R 9700 in 2017.

“We’ve worked with Volvo Bus for a long time now and have a strong relationship with both the sales team as well as the aftermarket service department at Wales & West in Pontypridd, and it made sense to continue these successful associations,” says Neil Grubham, operations manager.

“As ever it was important to us to purchase the best possible quality coaches and we have had a number of Volvo 9700s which we have been delighted with. The vehicles have been running, with impressive fuel efficiency as well as high specification and quality finish. It was an easy decision to make a repeat purchase as our tour programme expands.”

Brent Thomas Coaches has also specified a Volvo B8R SC5 due to the demand for a smaller vehicle.

Brent Thomas Coaches has been established for more than 25 years and continues to be a family-owned company.
