Imperial Engineering - Bus & Coach Parts - Industry Supplier

Based in Harlow, Essex, Imperial Engineering is a fifth-generation family owned business that has developed into the UK’s principal independent distributor of OE bus parts and coach spares and components.

Our OE bus and coach parts

As specialist coach parts suppliers and second to none when it comes to the sourcing of original, brand new bus and coach parts in support of the whole UK industry, Imperial Engineering is proud of its longstanding responsibility in contributing to the safety and reliability of the nation’s public and private transportation service. Imperial Engineering supplies a massive range of PSV parts and components, directly from leading global OE bus and coach parts manufacturers, including Knorr-Bremse, Wabco spares, Haldex, Meritor, Dana and PSS.

Encompassing all areas of the vehicle, from braking and friction products, drivetrain, propshafts, steering components and water pumps, to turbochargers and airbags, in fact, all coach spares, bus parts and PSV parts that operators need, Imperial Engineering offers the highest level of product knowledge, engineering expertise, simplicity of purchase, aftersales and service reliability.

Recognising the demands of operators both large and small, Imperial Engineering has built a reputation for supporting the needs of its bus and coach parts customers in a fast-moving industry with leading brands such as Optare parts and Wabco spares. We keep things simple, reliable and cost effective.

Our own fleet of branded vans cover the London area, whilst we have well established logistics arrangements with leading delivery partners. It’s our policy to collect old core or faulty items upon delivery of new bus and coach parts, Optare parts and others. This enables us to return these PSV parts straight to the OE manufacturers, which means that customer workshops do not have to dispose of end-of-life units, saving them time and money.

A robust warranty process offers peace of mind to customers, who are safe in the knowledge that Imperial Engineering brings unrivalled experience of the bus and coach spares industry to the benefit their operation and business.

We pride ourselves on our accountability and customer-centric approach, which instils confidence and trust. Imperial Engineering has built a number of long-term customer relationships, developed through our unstinting attention to detail, knowledge and respect for their operations, whilst delivering bus and coach parts, Optare parts and Wabco spares ahead of the competition.

Imperial Engineering is a true gentleman of the bus and coach parts business, providing a friendly local service on a national basis.”
