Stewarts Coaches, the award winning, Berkshire-based transport company, has acquired Woods Coaches of Leicester for an undisclosed sum.
Stewarts Coaches, which recently won a “Coach Operator of the Year” title at the Route One Operator Excellence Awards, will retain the Woods Coaches name and existing management team.
Following the acquisition, the Stewarts Group now operates a fleet of more than 60 vehicles – from luxurious 16-seat minibuses to full size touring coaches, state-of-the-art buses and magnificent “team coaches”, which offer full hospitality facilities. Of these vehicles, 42 are operated from Stewarts Group’s Berkshire headquarters under the Stewarts Coaches brand, whilst 19 are operated by Woods Coaches from the company’s Leicester base.
“Woods Coaches is an excellent fit for Stewarts”, says Stewarts Group’s CEO and co-owner Andy Cotton. “We share the same core values and commitment to passenger safety, driver welfare and exceptional standards of service.”
