Iveco introduces new Busmaster accreditation for coachbuilders
Iveco has introduced its Busmaster certification programme for bodybuilders to the UK with eight companies now recognised as meeting the chassis manufacturer’s build quality and aftercare standards. Eight UK and Ireland bodybuilders have received the accreditation: Euromotive, EVM, GM Coachwork, Mellor Coachcraft, Minibus Options, Noone, Nu-Track and Stanford Coaches.
“The Busmaster accolade is both a reward for providing high quality products to Iveco customers, and a seal of quality for the coachbuilder,” says Abdi Ali, product manager, Iveco Bus UK. “Through the programme, Iveco Bus can drive customers to a network of qualified Busmaster coachbuilders when they’re looking for bespoke bodywork, and we congratulate the first companies to have passed the audit.”
The new awards take the total number of Busmaster-accredited coachbuilders across Europe to 24.
The Busmaster standard assesses the manufacturing processes of the coachbuilders as well as sales and aftersales support, parts availability and accuracy of engineering documentation. Iveco has developed a Busmaster website to provide information for customers on each of the accredited builders.
