Whittles continues Volvo/Plaxton combination
Johnsons has invested in a new coach for its recently-acquired Whittles business. A new Euro 6 49-seat Volvo/Plaxton Panther coach joins Whittles’ fleet of nine coaches. The specification includes extra legroom, air-conditioning, drinks facilities, toilet and DVD player. The coach will be used on Whittles’ range of holidays and day excursions this summer as well as for its private hire business.
“In my early years of working in the coach industry, the aspirational vehicle and chassis combination was a Volvo/Plaxton and I am pleased that after 35 years we have bought one,” says Peter Johnson, director at Whittles Coaches. “The acquisition of Whittles and its one hundred per cent Volvo/Plaxton fleet meant that everyone there was really used to this product and vouched for it from a customer and an operational point of view. So we are really pleased to make this investment in our Whittles fleet which will support our hardworking and professional staff and our many Whittles customers.”
