International Track 200

In Hong Kong, 4m passengers travel on 4,200 Alexander Dennis buses every day. The Falkirk firm’s fuel-efficient, environmentally- friendly buses are used in Asia, Australasia and North America. International growth has been boosted by large orders from Canada and Hong Kong, plus a £3.8m takeover of Australia’s second-largest bus maker. Exports hit £165m in 2012 under chief executive Colin Robertson, 49.
