Iberian manufacturer UNVI, a very popular brand with Irish Operators, has just completed a substantial renovation of its  manufacturing facility in Porto. With more than 25 years of experience as bus bodybuilder, in its desire to reinforce its long-term strategy, has undertaken a complete reform of its facilities in Porto.

The factory was built in the mid-1960s and has been owned by UNVI since 2006.

The renovation began in 2018 and has been completed in spring 2020. The inauguration has been postponed as it could not be otherwise for prevention during COVID-19 period.

For UNVI it has been a very important investment. All areas have been renewed to adapt the facilities to our standards, contributing absolutely to achieve the vision of our company: “Consolidate UNVI as a benchmark company in moving solutions with high added value, supported by its three main pillars: safety, quality and productivity, respecting the environment and thanks to teamwork, rigour, proactivity, training and continuous development that contribute to a constant spirit of improvement of the people who make it up”.

All workspaces have been redesigned under the premise of the highest safety and comfort conditions, with the utmost attention to ensuring the necessary conditions to manufacture a high quality product, without sacrificing the versatility and flexibility that our customers appreciate so much.

In the last quarter of 2020, an important order of 30 units of our urban model UNVI URBIS has been delivered to Horários de Funchal (Madeira, Portugal), with a version specially adapted to the orography of the routes and stops of the destination.

This December, we are starting the series of a new urban order with the new C21 body.
