OzPress Industries have joined with Gemilang Australia to build busses for the Australian market. Gemilang Australia have been supplying buses throughout Australia since 2010.
Using OzPress Industries long experience in manufacturing including the principles of Lean and the Toyota Production System with Gemilang’s expertise with building buses, we have been successful in winning our first contract to supply 50 buses to Transdev for use in the Public Transport Victoria network.
These buses have local content requirements which has led us to work with many other Victorian and Australian companies and we look forward to strengthening our partnerships throughout the industry. Our position in regional Victoria has provided us with unique opportunities to provide another option for companies looking for local bus bodybuilders.
Our first finished buses left the OzPress Industries factory in June 2019 with work rapidly progressing on the other vehicles. We have been very thankful of the support we have received from the Victorian Government and the City of Ballarat in this process.
We are actively looking to the future with development of electric and hydrogen powered buses which we believe will open up a whole range of new opportunities.
