Plastows makes a return trip with Volvo B11R Euro 6

Oxford based Plastows Coaches has once again turned to Volvo Bus when it needed to update its fleet with the purchase of a new Volvo B11R Euro 6.

This is the first Volvo B11R Euro 6 coach that family owned and run Plastows has purchased for its all Volvo fleet.

The company needed a new 53 seater coach due to becoming increasingly busy and this is the tenth new Volvo the company has purchased.

Jo Standbridge said:  “We’ve had a very successful and long standing relationship with Plastows Coaches.  Over the years they’ve found our coaches meet all of their requirements of sound, efficient and reliable vehicles with excellent after sales back-up as well as availability of quality spares.

“The Volvo B11R Euro 6 chassis is very well known for its quality and technical specification for operators as well as providing the high standard of service and comfort expected by today’s coach traveller.

“We’re delighted to be working with Plastows again and the fact they have further invested in our popular B11R Euro 6 chassis clearly underlines the quality of service we provide and their faith and trust in our vehicles.”

Plastows Coaches has been in operation for more than 60 years.
