Van Hool strikes exclusive UK deal with Arriva Bus and Coach

From 1 February 2019, Arriva Bus and Coach will take on exclusive responsibility for marketing and sales for the entire range of Van Hool coaches in the UK, including all EX and TX models. Van Hool and Arriva Bus and Coach have been partners in the UK for more than 30 years and the Belgian manufacturer has now decided to deal exclusively through the Cleckheaton-based dealership and is ending its relationship with Moseley PCV, Moseley Distributors and Moseley in the South after February.

“Van Hool has chosen to enter the exclusivity agreement with Arriva Bus and Coach because we share their vision for the future,” says Erik Olijslagers, Van Hool head of sales bus and coach private market.

“Exclusivity will mean our customers receive the absolute best in every aspect of buying and operating a Van Hool coach. So not only is this an important moment for Van Hool and Arriva Bus and Coach, it is also fantastic news for operators of Van Hool coaches.”
