Dennis Brothers set up in business in 1895, making bicycles in Guildford, but they soon added motor tricycles, quadricycles and cars to their product range. After the Great War cars were discontinued, the firm concentrating on lorries, buses, fire appliances and motor mowers. The Dennis name became ubiquitous on the streets of Britain from the 1920s to the 1960s, on every kind of commercial vehicle, but most notably on fire appliances and municipal vehicles. The last Dennis bus was made in 1967 and in 1972 Hestair Group took over the firm, renaming it Hestair Dennis. In 1989 it was sold to Trinity Holdings, then in 1998 to Mayflower Corporation. in 2001 TransBus International was set up, but in 2004 it went into administration and Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) was set up in its place. In 2007 ADL acquired Plaxton, creating the UK’s biggest bus and coach manufacturer. For publication in 2016 Q3
