Stuttgart/Neu-Ulm – Touring and transport company Sieke continues the modernisation of their fleet by purchasing five S 415 UL vehicles. After having received six ComfortClass 400 touring coaches in December last year and a double-decker S 431 DT from the TopClass 400 model series in March of this year, the end of 2012 was seen to be the right time for renewing the fleet of inter-city buses.

In its successive replacement of the entire touring coach and regular service bus fleet, the company from Hessen places enormous emphasis on vehicle quality – a criteria which they feel is fulfilled by the Setra vehicles purchased. Wilhelm Sieke particularly praises the versatility of the new inter-city buses which besides serving regular service bus routes will also be used for school excursions or occasional chartered journeys: “The Setra brand has been a reliable partner for our tasks for many years. Since 1978, we’ve been impressed by the high quality and the ever advanced technology which the brand from Ulm employs”, explained the company’s director at the handover of the five new buses in Neu‑Ulm. The S 415 UL vehicles from the MultiClass 400 model series will soon be used on new routes in the Waldeck-Frankenberg area.

Sieke KG has been relying on Setra buses for over 30 years

Initially founded in 1811 as a small artisanal enterprise, Sieke KG established its bus company in Diemelstadt, Hessen in 1965 and their expertise lies in renting out high-quality touring coaches. Currently employing 35 members of staff, they support tour operators in the organisation and realisation of made-to-measure short-range and long-distance tours around Europe. What’s more, the touring and transport company, now being run in its third generation, also operates a driving school, as well as serving regional regular service bus routes.
