Motorbus was founded in August 1995.
With extensive experience acquired in the bus sector, the current administrator Óscar Pereira decided to plot his own course and open a company specializing in the sale of heavy vehicle parts.
At the time, with its facilities in the Mina Industrial Zone, Canelas - VN Gaia (photo), its market began to be essentially that of buses (90%) and its clients were: J. Espírito Santo, Rodonorte and Autoviação Pacense, among others.
Three years after its foundation, and due to the positive and consolidated evolution being observed, the founding partner is joined by his sons Joel Lebre and Pedro Lebre, for a new phase of growth that, two years later, created the need to incorporate the the company's first commercial representative, Mr. Manuel Paiva. Since those days and until today, the staff has been increasing according to the structure's needs, reaching the a current total of 27 employees in the most different areas. In 2006, the initial facility's accommodations became scarce for the company's evolution and it became necessary to move to a larger area, with increased capacity for growth and with greater ease of access and visibility, in the Industrial Zone of Urtigueira, also in Canelas. These facilities were expanded and improved successively in 2008 and 2013, forming what Motorbus is today - 3 warehouses with a total of 3000m2.
In the current year of 2018, more specifically on May 14, another remarkable date in the history of the company, the opening of the branch/store in Lisbon - Castanheira do Ribatejo, with 2200m2 and that allows to extend in a more effective way the area of influence of the company.
This evolutionary process resulted in the attribution of the ISO 9001: 2008 certification awarded by APCER and the status of PME Líder Excellence in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 e 2017.
At Motorbus we are constantly committed and motivated for the continuous improvement of our service and in meeting the needs of our customers. In this perspective, we have implemented the Quality Management System according to the normative reference NP EN ISO 9001: 2008, certain that it will be an impetus for our growth and that will make us a safe bet in the market for heavy-duty vehicle parts.
