Our engineering workshop was largely
dedicated to the repair and remanufacture of components for the famous Routemaster bus, which we supported for over 20 years right up until its withdrawal in 2006.
The M25 provided the Company with excellent access to both London and the motorway networks, which facilitated excellent access to the extensive range of bus companies being
serviced by Imperial's
fleet of vehicles.
In the early 1990's the
the need for fundamental
change and chose
to concentrate its
business on the
supply of new
OE products instead
In 1994 Imperial was appointed
an Authorised Distributor
for Knorr Bremse, soon
followed by similar appointments with
Wabco Automotive, Dana Spicer and more recently Haldex. These Original Equipment Manufacturers are synonymous with the highest standards that meet the criteria set by the bus industry where quality and safety are paramount.
A fifth generation of the Dwight family, in James and John Dwight, are now working for the company, and are carrying forward the Imperial ethos, developing the professionalism, expertise and product quality that is demanded by the modern bus industry from its suppliers.
The Company has come a long way in its 90+ years history but knows only too
well that it has to continue evolving.
The belief that nobody is more
important than our customers remains
our philosophy for the future.
