BCI, Australian Bus Supplier

History

BCI is now one of the most recognisable brands in the bus industry. Ron Nazzari, chairman, and Desmond Armstrong, CEO, have shared 30 years of friendship and partnership building and distributing buses in Australia. When BCI founder Ron established the company in 1991 it was a small, family-run operation in Perth. Today BCI’s head office is still located in Perth, with dealerships in Victoria, Queensland and South Australia, and a growing export flow to New Zealand, North America and Europe.
