Our low floor route bus is manufactured using our unique Co-Bolt® system, which makes it safer, lighter and more cost efficient than a traditional steel bus.
Volgren Australia is the country's leading bus bodybuilder with manufacturing plants in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. Established in 1977, the company has grown rapidly in recent years thanks to its focus on safety, reliability and high environmental standards.
Over the past three decades, Volgren has redefined trends in bus manufacture, design and bus safety. We now employ more than 600 people at four manufacturing facilities across Australia.
In February 2012, after over 30 years of full ownership, the Grenda Corporation sold a majority stake in Volgren to Marcopolo SA, one of the world's largest bus body manufacturers. This ownership structure brings global capability while retaining local ownership. Both owners, being family oriented businesses, have a close alignment of their core values around people and customer service.
A Strong Global Alliance
Volgren's aluminium technology is unparalleled and is used in alliance with Hess in Europe and Gillig in the United States. This global alliance provides us with access to proven, world-leading technology and enables us to undertake aluminium bus body manufacture to the highest standard.
As we have a strong alliance with industry-leading bus companies, we are able to use the latest technologies such as the GM-Allison drive system used in our Hybrid Bus. This vehicle saves fuel and reduces carbon dioxide emissions, and has attracted strong customer interest.
Our Unique Co-Bolt Advantage
Volgren builds vehicles using a unique aluminium system that makes our buses stronger, lighter and more energy efficient than traditional steel buses - as well as cheaper to repair. A reason for our outstanding success story is the use of the Co-Bolt aluminium extrusion body technique, in which our buses are built using a system of bolted gusseted joints.
Worldwide, more than 25,000 buses have been built using this aluminium bus body technology, which is continually assessed and improved across the globe. Volgren uses this state-of-the-art technology for bus manufacture, ensuring each vehicle saves fuel and reduces carbon emissions.
