Australian owned and operated

We have been operating in Australia for over 10 years and are wholly Australian owned and operated. We pride ourselves on delivering quality aluminium bus bodies on time and to your specification. We have built over 360 buses in all different configurations, such as standard City Bus, Double Deck and Articulated, including also being the largest manufacturer of electric buses in Australia with over 75 units in operation having travelled over 10 million kilometers in operation.

We are not a one-size-fits-all business. We strive to understand your requirements, how your fleet operates, and we provide a solution that best suits your needs.

Building in Australia

Our manufacturing and assembly plants are in Glendenning & Bankstown in Western Sydney NSW, with an additional site in Keysborough VIC. Within these facilities we have the capacity to output over 450 locally built buses per annum. We strive to source as many components from local Australian suppliers to strengthen our manufacturing industry and have the fastest support response.

We are committed to building a quality Australian product and forging long-term partnerships to help our customers succeed.

Recent Projects

GEMILANG Electric Bus (NSW)

In 2016 GMLA designed, developed and built the first 6 production electric buses in Australia for use around Sydney Airport, extending that to a total in use today of just over 70 around Australia by the end of 2021.

With over 9 million km’s travelled in use by some of the country’s largest operators, such as Transit Systems, Logan Bus, Swissport, Punchbowl Bus Company and Busabout, this is a well-tested and proven bus. This makes GMLA the largest and most successful supplier of electric buses in Australia

We successfully completed a project in late 2017 in collaboration with TfNSW and MAN. Building 38 Double Deck vehicles which are now operating in Sydney as part of the B-Line Project. Additional Double Deck buses were built for MAN & Volvo bringing the total manufactured locally to 46.
