Irizar commits to UK with new HQ13 September 2019

Irizar has started on construction of a new site at Blyth, close to the A1 in Nottinghamshire, which will be the new headquarters for Irizar UK.

The first phase of the project will be a secured yard, where stock coaches will be held, along with a sales office. At this stage, operators will be able to visit the Blyth premises to view all of Irizar’s new and used stock.

The company has also announced that it is taking steps to mitigate against any Brexit-related supply issues by taking delivery, before 31 October, of an allocation of special edition i6S Integral coaches for the UK market.

The vehicles are being built to mark Irizar’s 130th anniversary. The 12.9m coaches feature DAF’s MX-11 300 408bhp engine, and ZF EcoLife automatic transmissions. A choice of 53- or 57-seaters will be available.

Julie Hartley (pictured, front centre), sales director of Irizar UK, says: “We are delighted that we are able to start the development of the site at Blyth, making it more convenient for our customers to visit the sales team and view all of our stock, new and used, in one centralised location, ahead of further future development of what will become the new home of Irizar UK.”
