London bus firm pulls into the UAE
Al Habtoor Motors has signed a deal to become the official distributor for Wrightbus International’s products in the UAE. Paul Brannigan, Wrightbus International Middle East Manager, who heads up the company’s office in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, said: “We see a great synergy between the two family-owned companies as Al Habtoor is highly respected in working with the most prestigious automotive marques in the region and has a close rapport with the people of the United Arab Emirates. “We believe this heralds the start of a mutually successful and long-term relationship.” Established in 1946, Wrightbus manufactures buses and is best known for its New London Routemaster. Al Habtoor Motors is already the distributor of Mitsubishi, Fuso, Chery, JAC, Bentley, Bugatti and McLaren in the UAE.
