The Mellor Orion E fully low floor all electric small bus

These products include the recently launched fully low floor all electric small bus, the Orion E, plus the standard Orion, the Strata High Floor and Low Floor models and the Tucana II.

In addition to sales, BK Invest will also be handling all aftersales and service on Mellor’s behalf with its Scandinavian customers.

“This new distributorship agreement with BK Invest, our first international deal, heralds the start of our drive to expand our business into European markets,” commented John Randerson, Managing Director for Mellor.

“We believe BK Invest to be an excellent fit with Mellor, as they not only have a similar philosophy and approach to business, while sharing our environmental values, but they also represent other UK bus manufacturers in the Scandinavian market. In particular, they have a proven track record with sales and aftersales for both the private and public sectors in these regions.

“With the Scandinavian countries being very committed to environmental principles, they already enjoy a buoyant electric vehicle market. We were impressed with BK Invest’s understanding of the specialised nuances of this sector, as well as their project by project approach to the introduction of electric buses, particularly with customers with relatively low experience of operating vehicles using this new technology.

Margareta Lundqvist, Managing Director of BK Invest, said: “In addition to sales, our team of highly skilled engineers at our Henån workshops will be providing aftersales in conjunction with our mobile support services.” 

Mellor will be exhibiting at Busworld Kortrijk for the first time this year and representatives from BK Invest will be joining them on the stand.

Mellor will be on stand 919A in hall 9 at Busworld Europe, Kortrijk which will take place from 20 – 25th October 2017.
