Mellor strikes new German distributor deal
As part of its European expansion plans, Mellor has announced a new distributorship arrangement with E-VADE Gmbh of Germany. This agreement confirms E-VADE as exclusive distributors for Mellor in Germany and Austria. It follows the recent signing of a similar distributorship encompassing the Scandinavian region.
While the initial focus will be on sales of the Orion E fully low floor all electric small bus (which makes its European debut at Busworld in October 2017) and Strata low and high floor models, it will eventually involve Mellor’s full range of left hand drive products. E-VADE will also be offering complete aftersales servicing and spare parts for Mellor’s German and Austrian customers.
MD for Mellor, John Randerson, said: “This new agreement covering Germany and Austria is the latest phase of our strategy to expand into the European bus sector. Not only do the team at E-VADE share a similar business and environmental ethos with Mellor, but also our range of products is an excellent fit with them. They are firmly committed to the establishment of a wide range of electric vehicles for Germany and Austria and know these markets very well. We are confident they will do an excellent job of representing Mellor’s interests, and will make a significant contribution to realising our European development goals.
“The team from E-VADE will be joining us on our stand at Busworld in Kortrijk, which is the first time we will have exhibited there.”
