Carlyle Wins First Group Contract
1st Mar 2011
Carlyle Bus & Coach Ltd covers both bus and coach requirements for glass. Carlyle is now the sole supplier of glass to FirstGroup. This is a big move forward for Carlyle as it demonstrates they are the leading force to aftermarket glass supply in to the UK bus and coach industry.
Carlyle has signed a 3-year fixed contact that covers all aspects of glass from screen and side bonded glass through to interior partition glass, which clearly strengthens the glass coverage for the UK vehicle park.
Each of Carlyle’s 6 strategically placed branches receives a delivery from its main warehouse (based in West Bromwich Birmingham) over night, which clearly benefits the customer when they need the glass as quick as possible for a fast turnaround to reduce vehicle downtime. This doesn’t just apply to glass, but the full product range that Carlyle have to offer as an all makes aftermarket supplier, ranging from vehicle lighting, GRP, aluminium skirt panels, seating, both driver and passenger, through to the general locks and catches.
