Bus and coach operator Edwards Coaches has announced plans to create 110 new jobs. The company, which is headquartered in Llantwit Fadre, near Cardiff, operates from a number of locations in South Wales and the Bristol area. The family run business is supported by over 11 million GBP (€12 million as per 22 August 2017) investment from the Santander bank, which will be used to buy a new fleet of 40 coaches and for the recently acquired depot in Avonmouth. Recently, Edward Coaches was awarded a contract to service the Bristol and Bath areas. There is no information as to when the jobs are expected to be filled.
