Iveco Bus was formed through the merger of the bus and coach divisions of Fiat Industrial, Iveco and Renault in January 1999, with Ikarus Bus added in late 1999. The Ikarus Bus division was sold off in 2006 to Hungary's Műszertechnika group.

From 2003 to 2010, Irisbus was 100%-owned by Fiat Group's Iveco, and the company was named Irisbus Iveco.[5] Now since 2013, Irisbus has been 100% owned by CNH Industrial's Iveco.

The company is based in Lyon, France with offices in Turin, Italy, Watford and Mainz. Buses are developed in one of two R&D centers, one in Italy and one in Switzerland. The engine which powers Irisbus Buses was developed in Italy by Fiat Powertrain Technologies, Turin, Italy.

The Irisbus name was retired and now the division is a branch of Iveco, rebranded as Iveco Bus in May 2013, after a reorganization plan.[6] All new buses are sold under the IVECO brand, as are all the other vehicles produced by the group.
