Custom Coaches has announced a new sales structure to support the growth in bus sales and strength of the bus market in Australia.

Over the past three years the Australian bus market has grown by 60 percent. During the same period Custom Coaches has increased production by the same amount.

"The new sales structure will enable greater focus on our customers. It is important to spend time with bus operators to understand their needs" says Stephen Jackson, Sales and Marketing Director of Custom Coaches.

The newest member of the Custom Coaches sales team is Phil Gilham, who joins as Adelaide and Canberra Contracts Manager. He joins the well-known team of Geoff Ross (Victoria, SA, WA and Tasmania Sales Manager), Norm Stott (NSW Sales Manager), Chris Jones (Queensland Sales Manager) and Nigel Wilson (NSW Contracts Manager and NSW Sales Manager).

As part of the re-structure Wilson will share responsibility with Norm Stott for sales in NSW. He has spent the past few years managing the State Transit and Adelaide bus contracts and will provide NSW operators with a wealth of experience. Wilson also has a technical background in bus door systems, providing customers with great confidence in his bus knowledge.

"The sales team has over 135 years’ experience in bus design, manufacturing and bus sales. This extensive experience will benefit our customers, and our goal in 2009 and 2010 with this bigger sales team is to spend more time with our customers and provide the sales support and after market care they deserve," Jackson says.

Custom Coaches has been building buses in Australia since 1955 and is the oldest and most successful bus body builder in Australia. The business has continued to expand over the past 50 years and has plants operating in Sydney, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
