Maynes unveils depot investment at Buckie HQ

‘Foundation is laid for next generation’ while award-winning Moray business adds 10 coaches to fleet

Award-winning Maynes Coaches welcomed more than 100 guests to the opening of its newly-built offices at its Buckie HQ on Friday 11 January.

The £500,000 project, started in July, has seen an extension to the existing premises to enlarge and renew its existing office facilities.

That has provided a new reception area plus open-plan office, a boardroom and managers’ and engineering offices alongside a purpose-built training room that seats 14, with the latest audio-visual equipment.

New and old

In a nod to the past, the smartly-finished offices include displays of Maynes’ heritage as well as its current operations.

The work not only involved building the single-storey extension, but also a substantial earth-moving operation. That also entailed re-grading and reconstruction of its adjacent coach parking area.

Speaking exclusively to routeone, Director David Mayne says: “This is a very important investment. We’re laying down the foundations for the next generation. There’s been a big upheaval during the last six months of construction, but this is a vital project as it will enable us to continue the business’ success.”

Designed by a local architect, the purpose-built suite of offices is the latest in a series of investments by the family-run operator. It is now in its 72nd year, with the third generation actively involved.

Strong investment

This month Maynes has taken delivery of three new Mercedes-Benz Tourismos and a Temsa MD9. A pair of Treka minibuses are being refurbished for use on council contracts and for delivery in the next two months are a Temsa Safari and three more Tourismos.

Business continues to grow and last summer saw Maynes’ fleet increase to 41, with the addition of a Neoplan Starliner. The former Everton FC team coach includes a number of tables and a full kitchen, enabling Maynes – which already carries out a significant amount of corporate work – to deliver for the most discerning clients.
