• Europe-wide bus expertise
• Existing cooperation expanded
EUROPART and the international personal transport company, DB Arriva, will intensify their cooperation in future. The leading European commercial vehicle parts dealer has won a Europe-wide call for bids from DB Arriva and will now supply replacement batteries for all Arriva buses in Sweden, Portugal, Spain and Slovakia. "We already work with DB Arriva in many different areas and in a number of European countries", emphasises EUROPART's CEO, Pierre Fleck. "The major contract from this important bus and rail operator in Europe reconfirms our international competence in spare parts for buses and our customers' high level of satisfaction with the quality of our products and the reliability of our delivery service."
The contract for Sweden, Portugal and Spain covers the delivery of batteries from the EUROPART own-brand. Arriva has cooperated very successfully with EUROPART in these countries, in particular Portugal, for a number of years and already has extensive experience with EUROPART's own-brand consumables and spare parts. In future, EUROPART will deliver Varta batteries for Arriva in Slovakia.
