VDL Bus & Coach Polska celebrates 15th anniversary

This year the Open Days at VDL Bus & Coach Polska, held on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 November 2015, were even more festive than usual. First, there was the Polish premiere of the new VDL Futura FDD2. This Futura double-decker was presented to the Polish customers, who expressed great interest. In addition, VDL Bus & Coach Polska celebrated their 15-year anniversary.
“We have built a good reputation with the VDL products over the past 15 years. The Futura is reliable, comfortable and offers the coach operator ‘Profit of Ownership’. The new VDL Futura FDD2 is a true asset for the Futura family, with plenty of potential in the Polish market. The presentation of the FDD2 gives our anniversary celebration extra sparkle,” said Bolesław Piekorz, managing director VDL Bus & Coach Polska.



A bit of history
The BOVA Polska location was officially opened on Friday 10 November 2000. At that time Poland was considered a gateway between Western and Eastern Europe because of the heavy international traffic, its potential for coach transport and the associated opportunities to sell coaches there. The Futura was already well known in Poland in 2000 due to the sale of a large number of second-hand Futuras. That gave BOVA Polska a good foundation for the development of this important Eastern European market. In 2004 the name was changed to VDL BOVA. Since 2008 the name has been VDL Bus & Coach Polska. The company began with four employees in 2000 and has since grown to the current nine. There are 22 service garages located throughout the country.

Future plans
The VDL Bus & Coach product range offers many opportunities for the Polish market. The coach segment is served optimally by the Futura range, with the FMD2, FHD2 and the new FDD2. For the public transport segment it is particularly the developments in the area of electric bus transport that are creating plenty of opportunities for the Citea Electric.
