Euro Bus Expo 2014

The Leyland Hose and Silicone Team attended the Euro Bus Expo from the 4th to the 6th November 2014 at the NEC, Birmingham.

The show is well regarded as the leading dedicated trade fair for the bus and coach industry in Europe this year.

Throughout the 3 day event, they show cased their very own range of Euro VI compliant hoses. Working with several major OE vehicle producers, they have designed and manufactured turbo-charger (CAC), coolant and air intake hoses, approved for Euro VI vehicles. Using high quality silicone compounds and new fabrics in their CAC hoses, capable of withstanding 250⁰C, Leyland Hose have been able to provide charge air solutions for the most demanding conditions.

They have also worked very closely with engineers at major OE bus and truck manufacturers to design hoses for intake systems on Euro VI vehicles. Difficult technical challenges have been met in designing a range of air intake hoses, capable of withstanding strong negative pressures without collapse, while maintaining sufficient flexibility to cope with the movement between engine and intake systems.

Stuart Hibberd, Business Development Manager comments, “After exhibiting at Eurobus Expo, our first impressions are very good. The exhibition was well organised and although the rate of enquiries at our stand was relatively low, the quality of the contacts was excellent.
We have already started our follow ups and the feedback is very promising. We are confident of securing new business as a result of the show. This was our first venture to Euro Bus Expo and we will certainly be back again in 2016!”
