About the Customer:
Lakeside Coaches can trace its origins to 1979 when the Lakeside Minicoaches business was taken over by Mr. John Davies (the present day Chairman). From these humble beginnings the business has gone from strength to strength through organic growth, operating the most modern coach fleet in the county of Shropshire and the largest coach fleet in the county, operates a fleet of 40 vehicles from the picturesque market towns of Ellesmere and Market Drayton, backed by nearly 60 directly employed staff.
From our purpose built headquarters in Ellesmere, completed in 2006 and expanded to our satellite depot in Market Drayton (Hodnet) in 2011, we dispatch coaches all over the country, primarily though within the County of Shropshire, Cheshire, North Wales, and the West Midlands.
The company offers 16-59 seater coaches available for hire to numerous individuals, groups and corporate customers. The company has a wide portfolio of work, with the bulk being made up of student transport for nearly 20 schools and colleges. Our coaches are instantly recognisable in either their traditional and smart livery of gold, light and dark green or alternatively in tour operator livery for those on dedicated touring work.
