As was expected since the separation of Daimler Trucks and Mercedes-Benz, now EvoBus GmbH will become Daimler Buses GmbH and all the affiliated European national subsidiaries will also be renamed accordingly. Also EvoBus service centres, previously known as “BusWorld Home”, will be renamed Daimler Buses Service Centers in the future.
In the press-release it is mentioned that Daimler expects that the “former” EvoBus GmbH will benefit from the brand’s awareness and underline its affiliation with Daimler Truck Group at the same time. EvoBus GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daimler Buses segment at Daimler Truck. Till Oberwörder, CEO of Daimler Buses: "With EvoBus, we have been very successful for almost three decades and we are proud of that. We are now looking forward to a new chapter as Daimler Buses GmbH – and we have a lot in store for ourselves: we want to lead the transformation of our industry to emission-free mobility and win over customers and talent. The new
name will help us achieve this because operating under this brand will mean we won't have to do much explaining." After the merger of Mercedes-Benz Omnibusse with the Kässbohrer Setra brand, the bus and coach manufacturers merged under the EvoBus umbrella brand 28 years ago. Today, it has a workforce of about 10,000 and 13 subsidiaries throughout Europe. Daimler Buses sites include Daimler Buses GmbH with numerous subsidiaries throughout Europe, Daimler Buses Latin America in Brazil, Daimler Buses Mexico, Daimler Coaches North America and the bus business of Mercedes-Benz Türk A.Ş in Turkey.
