Optare is expanding its presence and brand in Australia and New Zealand, with its focus on building a comprehensive sales & after-sales network in the region as a first step.
Discussions with potential dealer partners in Australia and New Zealand have commenced following the termination of Optare’s relationship with Patico Automotive last month. Optare aims to confirm its new network within the next 3 months. Optare will provide full support for vehicles in service during the transition period.
Shannon Taylor, who has gained extensive knowledge working with the Optare product in Australia over the last few years, has joined Optare to coordinate interim sales and aftermarket support in Australia and New Zealand with full factory back up from Optare in the UK.
Robert Drewery, Commercial Director, Optare, commented, “The Optare product with its low deployment costs and fuel efficient design has been extremely well received into the Australian market. We look forward to seeing further growth of our brand in Australia and New Zealand in the future.”
