Mass Transit

Our mass transit sector covers a variety of clients across bus, coach and rail applications. Many manufacturers and operators are choosing our low carbon leather to replicate or even enhance the level of luxury and comfort of their customers’ own ‘in-car’ experience.

Durable luxury

The inclusion of genuine leather in vehicles not only enhances the level of luxury and comfort of the passenger environment, but also increases the durability, cleanliness and overall longevity of the seat covering – meaning less maintenance and refurbishment costs.

In-house formulas

Many of our lacquer systems have been specially engineered to meet the greater abrasion, flex and colour fastness, rubbing in wet and dry conditions, and increased perspiration demands of the bus and coach sector. Whether you are looking to cover your full seat or simply to enhance the design of a headrest or bolster, Muirhead can comfortably accommodate your requirements.

A first class impression

We have recently begun, what we believe to be, one of Europe’s largest refurbishment programmes with Irish Rail. We are working with them on the refurbishment of 234 carriages, with around 15,500 seat covers upgraded with our leather. It was a pleasure to be chosen to work with them and to create the potential for a €3.2m saving by choosing our leather over a fabric alternative.

Some of our recent contracts have been with Alexander Dennis, a UK manufacturer like ourselves, and one of Europe’s fastest growing bus manufacturers.
