Heuliez is a French coachbuilder based in Rorthais in the Deux-Sèvres. Despite its very long history, the manufacturer is still known for its ability to maintain 100% French production by workers and not by robots.
The company has been producing car bodies since 1920, but since 1937 it has concentrated on its Heuliez bus section, which specializes in bodywork. In the early 1990s, it was integrated into the CNH industrial group, which also includes bus manufacturer Iveco.
In 1984 Heuliez released the GX107 model. This was the first passenger transport vehicle produced under the name GX. In 1986 Heuliez launched the world's first double articulated vehicle under the name GX237. It is produced in an edition of only 10 copies under the name Renault Megabus. However, the GX series as we know it today was only introduced in 1994 with the GX317, the very first flat-bottomed bus accessible to people with reduced mobility.
With the introduction of the GX117 series in 1998, Heuliez offered for the first time a complete range of city buses with a midi bus, a standard and an articulated bus.
As Heuliez is a coachbuilder, the French manufacturer built its buses on the technical basis of established manufacturers such as Mercedes (1975 to 1984) , Renault (1994 to 2001), Volvo (1995 to 2001) and, since 2001, Iveco vehicles.
