Ingleby’s celebrates 50 years
Ingleby’s Luxury Coaches of York is celebrating 50 years of business.
The company, founded in May 1968 by Mr Chris Ingleby with a Ford Transit 12-seater minibus, was originally known as Ingleby’s Mini Coaches. Four years later, the first full-sized coach was purchased and the trading name changed to Ingleby’s Luxury Coaches. In 1977, the company moved from rented premises to the current site on Hospital Fields Road, Fulford Industrial Estate.
Over the years the fleet has increased to its present size of 25 vehicles, ranging from 16-seater minibuses and modern 33- to 59-seater luxury coaches, to the very latest high-quality air-conditioned 72-seater coaches for education transport.
A statement from the company said: “Throughout all of our history Ingleby’s has held a firm policy of ‘quality not quantity’, providing traditional great customer service first and foremost in every situation. The success of this approach is reflected in the fact that we still today have some customers who have been with us for the full 50 years and we are very proud of this fact.”
