SPONSORED CONTENT: ABC SALES & MAINTENANCE is part of the Woodward Family CaPTA Group, which consists of Tropic Wings Cairns Tours & Charters, Jungle Tours & Trekking, Wooroonooran Safaris, Rainforestation Nature Park, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, Wildlife Habitat, and Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome.

ABC Sales & Maintenance's workshop has a full-sized bus pit as well as a hoist and space for up to eight coaches.

It is in a unique position as an Australian distributor and dealer with its workshop, which has also been operating a fleet of 53 vehicles for the past 35 years. This experience includes day touring, charter, extended charter and school bus contracts.

General manager of ABC Sales & Maintenance Barry Henderson has an impressive background, with experience in operating and selling coaches since 1978.

Barry has been to many bus factories all over the world. He is amazed by the Yutong production line precision and automation, the testing facilities including testing track, the electroplating, and the size and volume of vehicles.


This does not go without mentioning the research and development department, which sees Yutong reinvest 3-4 per cent of its annual turnover. Yutong not only established the first post-doctoral workstation, state-level technical centre and experimental centre in China’s bus industry, but also possesses a professional R&D team of over 1,000 people who have advanced concepts of bus development. This guides the design of the bus products with science and technology.

Barry has completed an accredited course at the Yutong factory located in Zhengzhou, China, and is fully qualified to sell Yutong coaches and ensure they are serviced and maintained to the highest level. But most importantly, Barry is passionate about his product! This is what makes ABC Sales & Maintenance different and stand out from the rest.
