New South of England home for Alexander Dennis as new Trident House facility opens in Farnborough

Alexander Dennis (Alexander Dennis Limited, “ADL”), has announced that the company has officially opened its new Trident House facility in Farnborough.

Trident House is the latest state-of-the-art facility from Alexander Dennis, the UK’s largest
bus and coach manufacturer.

The new facility will be critical to taking forward the company’s new product development

agenda and zero emission mobility ambitions, with the innovative hub housing experts from

across the business in engineering and test and development, as well as other key business

teams who will underpin future success for the company.

Trident House takes its name from the iconic Dennis Trident low floor chassis, which

revolutionised accessible double deck buses in the UK and across the globe in the 1990s.

Legacy preservation was a key consideration in the design of the facility, which will

additionally have a museum honouring the heritage of the Dennis brand and the people,

knowledge, passion and expertise it encompasses.

To mark the start of a new era for Alexander Dennis, Trident House was officially opened by

Paul Soubry, NFI President and CEO at a company-wide ribbon cutting ceremony.

Alexander Dennis President and Managing Director Paul Davies said: “Our people are our

most precious resource and even in these very challenging times, we have invested in

creating a modern, bright working environment to benefit our valued team members, providing them with the space, support and services they require to be able to do their jobs

to the very best of their abilities.

“Trident House underlines our commitment to the UK market and to the recruitment and

retention of the essential highly skilled jobs that will underpin the transition to zero emission


“We are incredibly proud of our history with Dennis having been established in 1895. Trident

House is a positive reinvigoration of the Dennis brand which always has been synonymous

with chassis innovation and engineering expertise. Our heritage and proven track record will

play an important part in continued our business growth, both domestically and

internationally, as well as providing a strong differentiator for Alexander Dennis compared to

new market entrants.”
