About the Customer:
Alexcars was founded by Alec Hibberd and his wife Barbara in 1946, starting with a private hire car. Alec’s brothers, Sidney and Norman also joined the business and soon the progression to coaches was made with the acquisition of a converted ambulance.
The company grew steadily, eventually forcing the move from the village of Baunton to its present base in Love Lane, Cirencester in the late nineteen fifties.
Alec and Barbara’s son Rodney joined the business in 1967 and following Alec’s death in 1997, Rod took the helm. Rod’s sister Jenny, her husband Will and their son Ben also take an active roll in the running of the business.
Alexcars still continues to grow and now employs some 25 full-time and part-time staff and has over 20 coaches of various sizes operating daily contracts, private hire, day excursions, short breaks and coach holidays
Rodney was really pleased when his new EVM Minicoach rolled into his yard. He was really pleased with his new EVM 22 seater Elegance and said it was a great addition his fleet. He did mention that the EVM Badge is like the kite mark of fantastic engineering and build quality and is glad he made a shrewd investment with EVM.
