Express Coach Builders is an Australian bus bodybuilder in Macksville.


Express Coach Builders was formed as Nambucca River Engineering in the 1970s.[1] It primarily built bodies on mid-sized chassis, initially Leylands and later Hinos and Isuzus, although it did body full sized chassis in both bus and coach configuration.[2]

After being placed in receivership in 1995 it was restructured and renamed Express Coach Builders.[3] In October 2007 the 500th body was completed.[4]
