Harris buys Chapman

Published to the CV Show website on

AE Harris & Co (Birmingham) Ltd has just bought Chapman Driver Seating Ltd.  Based near Milton Keynes, Chapman supplies bus and coach driver seats to operators including First Group, Stagecoach and Arriva and to bus and coach builders including Plaxton, Alexander Dennis and Wright Bus.  The firm will eventually move its manufacturing to the AE Harris factory near Birmingham.  130-year old Harris makes metal pressings, welded assemblies, turned and machined parts for automotive customers.  John Sloyan, MD at Harris says the deal will help Chapman develop new products and use in-house component supply to increase efficiency.
