BRITISH coachbuilder Walter Alexander of Falkirk looks set to win a E1.1m export order from Singapore Bus Company.
Alexander general manager Ray Braithwaite told CM that he had received a telex of intent from SBC for 100 ckd double-deck body kits for Leyland Atlantean AN68A/ 2R chassis.
They will be fitted with windows, seats, and other fittings which are being supplied locally.
This is the first large batch of double-deckers for Singapore which has been testing a trial batch of 20 Atlanteans, 10 with Metal Sections bodies and 10 with British Aluminium bodies.
It comes as Alexander is building a batch of six jumbosized Volvo Ailsa doubledeckers for China Motor Bus in Hong Kong, and as it is putting finishing touches to the Ailsa prototype which has been modified for tropical operation prior to export to Bangkok.
One of the Hong Kong Ailsas will be displayed at this year's Motor Show in Birmingham from October 2029.
