Go-Ahead Group acquires Anglian Buses – 23 April 2012
David Brown is pleased to announce that Go-Ahead has acquired Anglian Buses. The company is based in Beccles, Suffolk and operates 71 buses services from the Suffolk coast to, from and within Norwich, as well as in Yarmouth, Lowestoft and on the Suffolk coastal strip down to Ipswich. The business has two depots, in Beccles and Rackheath, and 133 staff including 100 bus drivers. It operates a mix of commercial routes and school and local bus contracts.
The business was established in 1981 by David and Christine Pursey, both of whom will now retire. Andrew Pursey will stay with the business and become Managing Director. The company name and brand will remain in place.
Anglian Buses fits well with our strategy of acquiring well-managed businesses which have the potential for growth and further development. We look forward to building on the success already achieved by the Pursey family and the Anglian Bus team.
