Simpson, L&N deliver first vehicle

LOCAL VEHICLE dealership Simpson Motors has teamed up with L&N Workshop Inc. to build minibuses in Barbados.
The first vehicle was handed over recently to new owner Morris Lee of Bus Maxx, who is also president of the Association of Public Transport Operators.
Simpson Motors sales director Mark Hamilton explained that it was a great achievement for all involved. “When Norman Edwards of L&N approached us for help with finding a cab and chassis suitable for a minibus, we were more than happy to assist.
“We immediately identified Isuzu as the perfect brand for the project with its reputation for performance and reliability in the commercial arena.
“We selected an Isuzu NQR model which proved to be the ideal starting structure for the 32-passenger minibus.”
Hamilton also complimented L&N: “This is the highest quality workmanship. It has passed all the necessary inspections and tests, including those from Isuzu, whose team gave the final product their stamp of approval.”
Edwards, who was thrilled by the reaction to the finished work, said working on this pilot project was challenging at times but after almost three years of hard work, the local company got it right.  
He also noted that the company was in the process of building two more minibuses, one of which already had a buyer. The businessman said he was expecting demand for the vehicles in Barbados and the region. (PR)
