Our Maintenance Department is managed by our
Maintenance Director - Mr Ken Walsh.
Ken started with the company in September 2001 and
since his time with the business we believe he is without doubt
- 'the best in the business.' Ken has the same attitude as
the Directors, 'In life there are no problems - only
challenges and there is nothing we cannot achieve!' If
there is a more passionate and dedicated engineer in the
coach industry we have yet to meet him! Our maintenance
department has grown considerably since Ken joined the company.
We currently have a young team of engineers who are passionate
and dedicated and they strive to be the best. These chaps
are a true reflection of the character of Ken and
they ensure our fleet is running to speed at all
times. Ken has a dedicated agenda in his duties
with Belle Vue but in what little spare time he has off,
he takes great pleasure in renovating old vehicles. These
are mainly old lorrys and coaches that have been sat in
some back yard of the previous owners for decades, almost
century's! Once Ken (and his brother Ray) get hold of these
vehicles they renovate them in a matter of weeks! They strip
the wrecks down to the chassis and start to rebuild them from
the frame up - in immaculate condition. You must
understand that no mega expensive parts are sourced, what
parts they cannot source competitively they make! - No
kidding! There is no job that Ken Walsh cannot do. Maintaining
and operating coaches in no challenge at all to Ken on
reflction of the projects he has carried out with his brother
Ray. They operate under 'K&R Walsh Brothers' and are well
known within the Industry and with all Vehicle Enthusiasts.
