Volgren Australia Pty Ltd
Volgren Australia Pty Ltd was founded over 40 years ago and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Marcopolo SA Group, one of the world’s largest bus makers. Volgren is the largest bus manufacturer in Australia, employing more than 300 employees throughout its three manufacturing sites in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, and four after-sales centres, one of them in New South Wales. Volgren is also responsible for over 500 indirect jobs in Australia and supports a wide range of local manufacturing in the supply of materials for the production of our buses in Australia.
Volgren manufactures a large range of buses, from general public transport use through to school buses, in single-body, single and double-deck and articulated forms, with powertrains ranging from diesel to hybrid to fully-electric. Volgren is well-known and acclaimed as a leader in new technology and design, and is one of the only bus manufacturers to use aluminium to help prolong product service life. In fact, Volgren’s very first bus is still in full operational condition.
Volgren Australia is recognised by the bus industry as Australia’s leading bus manufacturer, with over one-third of the Australian bus market by volume. Volgren buses operate in every state and territory of Australia. In addition, Volgren Australia designs and builds buses for specific export markets, for example, supplying articulated buses to Japan.
