The German car manufacturer Daimler AG plans to merge its domestic distributors - Mercedes-Benz Romania with EvoBus Romania so as to increase its operational efficiency in terms of sales and after-sales in the Romanian market.
“The merger aims at consolidating our company in Romania by streamlining the potential and pooling resources in the best possible way. Also, we can further improve the quality of our services to benefit our customers, especially by further expanding our authorized services network outside Bucharest for Mercedes-Benz and Setra buses”, Boris Billich, CEO Mercedes-Benz Romania, said according to a news release.
Once the legal proceedings are completed, the operations run by EvoBus will be transferred to Mercedes-Benz Romania, including the sale of buses and both new and used coaches, as well as the retail operations. So, from then on all activities will be run under the same management, but in a combined structure, the core target remaining the current one – buses and coaches customers.
EvoBus Romania was founded in 2006 following an auction organized by RATB – the Bucharest Public Transport Company, controlled by the Romanian Government – for purchase of buses and after-sales services.
