BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Custom Bus (‘Custom’) is Australia’s second-largest bus-body building company with a proud heritage, having produced its first vehicle in 1955. Custom has a reputation for producing high quality, durable city buses for government and route services, designed for a 25-year life cycle. Custom’s customers include some of Australia’s largest government and private bus operators.

The company is headquartered at its state of the art facility in Sydney, NSW and has service centres in NSW and SA.

During February 2017, Allegro Fund II sold its interest in Custom to MPC Investments Nominees Trust to the previous owners of the business.

Custom was the first investment made in Allegro Fund II.
