NFI president and chief executive officer Paul Soubry said: "ADL is the UK's number one bus manufacturer and the number one global producer of double-deck buses, with an established international presence and is recognised as a leader known for innovative products and a commitment to quality and service. "We're thrilled to have ADL join the NFI family and to be investing in such a great engineering and manufacturing success story, and a company we already know so well. ADL is an outstanding company with a strong track record and we look forward to working with the whole team to build more success on those solid foundations."  

There has been no mention of job losses but Unite trade union has asked to meet NFI to seek assurances about the future of its 1,000 workers in Scotland.
