Duple Coachbuilders
Duple was started in 1919 by Herbert White and the name 'Duple' was supposed to mean 'dual role'. Surplus vehicles from the First World War were rebodied with coachwork that could be full of seats, or with seats removed carry goods. From 1928 Duple got orders for bus bodies and Duple became established a builder of bus and coaches. From 1931 Vauxhall Motors recommended Duple for the WLB bus chassis, and future Bedford products were often given Duple bodies. Duple acquired Burlingham in 1960, but could not adapt to the changing bus market following deregulation in 1980. In 1989 Duple was bought by its rival Plaxton.
