New asset finance company launched by green pioneer Jo Bamford

Green pioneer and Wrightbus owner Jo Bamford has launched FUZE, a unique asset finance company offering funding of zero-emission buses.  

Heralding the industry as being “on the cusp of vital change”, FUZE will offer a turnkey solution to help operators get more buses on the roads in the race to net zero.

Following the company’s successful launch of its market-leading battery electric bus, the Electroliner, at ITT Hub, Jo Bamford said it was the perfect time to provide a complete financial solution across the entire zero-emission ecosystem.

Wrightbus, which celebrates its 75th birthday this year, was the first manufacturer in the world to have hydrogen and battery-electric vehicles in production, with buses running all across the UK.

Operating exclusively within the zero emission PCV sector, FUZE will design, deliver and finance the seamless transition to a zero-emission fleet by offering funding on the vehicles, infrastructure, fuel – either hydrogen or electric – and a repair and maintenance package.

The company is headed up by Ben Werth, who joins from Mistral Group Limited where he was Group Sales Director with responsibility for the entire asset finance portfolio.
