Exporting to over 30 countries worldwide, we are leaders in the bus markets of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Mauritius and have significant presence in the Middle East and Africa too. We are proud participants in the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system in Lagos, Nigeria, that is going a long way in providing better and comfortable city travel. We are now seeking to make inroads into CIS and Latin America.
