Bus & Coach Buyer is moving on
After 24 years in the fold of Glen Holland Ltd, Bus & Coach Buyer has new owners keen to take the magazine forward into an increasingly digital future
AT Graphics is an established family business, specialising in production services for print, web, tablet and mobile platforms. Based in Peterborough, its company strategy is driven by technological developments and changing customer needs for products and services. The young and dynamic team behind it, headed by MD Rob Tipping, believe that Bus & Coach Buyer and sister publication, Coach Tours UK, are strong and respected brands that can be further developed to serve their target audiences.
The change comes as Glen Holland MD, Steve Cole, wishes to retire but though he and wife Mandy will be departing, all other existing staff will be transferring with the titles ensuring customers will continue to deal with the teams they already know.
Stuart Jones will continue to lead the editorial team as Editor-in-Chief and sees the change as an opportunity to consolidate the magazines’ position as the best respected and the most effective medium to promote to the bus and coach industry.
Our existing freelance contributors including Rob Orchard, Roger French, Roger Davies, Doug Jack and David Cole will all be continuing their long standing relationships with the magazine.
While it’s a new era for the team, we will be working to ensure that, for our readers and advertisers, the change is seamless, other than for invoicing details.
Steve and I are pretty sure that a lot of people didn’t think we would last six months, let alone 24 years, when we began Bus & Coach Buyer – indeed many of you told us so. We hope you’re glad we proved you wrong. This move provides a strengthened basis to take the magazine forward.
Steve, Stuart and the team would like to wholeheartedly thank you for your support to date and we hope that you will continue to work with the magazine in the future. We’ll all be doing our utmost to justify your continued faith in us
