Solaris Bus & Coach SA is a bus, coach, trolleybus and tram manufacturer based in Bolechowo near Poznań, Poland.

It is a family-owned business, with Krzysztof Olszewski as co-owner and his wife Solange as CEO. It is located in a former weapons factory, and was featured by BBC World in a program related to EU expansion in May 2004, as an example of a post-communist success in Poland.

History

Solaris started as Neoplan Polska, founded in 1994 by Krzysztof Olszewski. Neoplan Polska was selling, and since January 1996 also building under German licence, low-floor Neoplan city buses. In 1999 it released first buses under its own Solaris brand (model Urbino). On 1 September 2001 Neoplan Polska was renamed to Solaris Bus & Coach Sp. z o.o. In 2005 it was transformed into a joint stock company.

In the 1990s, the company developed its own research office and used computer software originally developed for the design of space shuttles. It reduced the time needed to design and build new prototypes to about six months. Another six months are needed to build a new bus prototype.

Trolleybuses are made in co-operation with the Hungarian company Ganz Electro or (the Czech division of) the company Cegelec and Polish company Medcom. Both companies make the electric devices for the vehicles. Solaris produced the first European bus model using hybrid technology, the Solaris Urbino 18 Hybrid. That hybrid model was delivered in November 2008 to the Polish city of Poznań.

In 2007 Solaris was employing about 1,200 workers, in 2009 about 1,600 workers. Now “Solaris Bus & Coach” builds about 1,000-1,200 buses a year.

In 2013, Solaris sold 1,302 buses and trams.

Setra is a German bus division of EvoBus GmbH, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daimler AG.

The name “Setra” comes from “selbsttragend” (self supporting). This refers to the integral nature of the construction of the vehicles back in the 1950s when competitor vehicles still featured a separate chassis and body (often manufactured by separate companies). It is also possible that, with an eye to export markets, the company was mindful that for non-German speakers, the name “Kässbohrer” is difficult to pronounce. Until 1995 the firm operated under the name Kässbohrer-Setra, but in that year economic difficulties enforced its sale to Daimler Benz (between 1998 and 2008 known, especially in the US, by the name of its holding company Daimler Chrysler). Since 1995, Setra has been a member of the Daimler Benz subsidiary, EvoBus GmbH.

The North American distribution for Setra by Daimler is set to be partnered and taken over by Motor Coach Industries on April 25, 2012 as Daimler restructures its North American bus operations in 2013.

6 Buses BREMACH – BRENNABOR – BBC BROWN BOVARI – BURILLO – BURLINGTON

Bussen Bremach, Brennabor, Brown Bovari, Burillo, en Burlington combi

Vandaag een Blog over zes verschillende merken waar maar heel weinig info over is. Bremach is een bedrijf uit Zuid Africa gespecialiseerd in gepantserde wagens en bussen.

Brennabor AST 36 Benzine 6 cyl 3080cc motor 1929

http://www.brennabor-brb.de/start.htm

Dit is de enige bus van Brennabor die op het wereldwijde Web te vinden is. Verder zijn er fietsen, bromfietsen, motoren, kinderwagens, auto’s. Op de bijgeplaatste linkjes is daarover het een en ander te vinden. Brennabor kwam uit Duitsland en was Weltburühmt.







Nu een stukje over Brown Bovari

Verder was Brown Bovari meer gespecialiseerd in Locomotieven en electrotechniek.
Brown Bovari is overigens van oorsprong Zwitsers.

Nu gaan we naar BURILLO. Burilli Carrocerias is van oorsprong Spaans en lijkt nu helemaal te zijn opgeslokt of overgenomen door Bus&Coach. Er staat wel een www adres, maar dat werkt niet bij. Ooit gestart in 1959.

En hier gaan we verder met Burlington Bussen

Burlington is eigenlijk geen merk maar een bus vervoers bedrijf, maar ik vond dit zo’n mooi plaatje dat ie er toch maar in komt.
Dit was het weer voor vandaag.
