A swiss manufacturing pioneer


Carrosserie HESS AG (HESS) is a global bus manufacturer based in Switzerland and a pioneer in the field of electric vehicles for public transport.

The company has been an Ink Bureau client since 2019; we’ve worked on a major tender bid, as well as media relations and marketing collateral as HESS moves into the Australian market.

Making the case for zero-emission vehicles

The Brisbane Metro tender bid

The Ink Bureau designed and authored tender documents, an executive summary and bid presentations for HESS’s successful tender submission to supply 60 high-capacity, zero-emission vehicles to Brisbane City Council.

Working with HESS and bid partners Volgren, The Ink Bureau translated highly complex information into compelling and concise summary information.

HESS has been a leader in Europe for many decades, but as Australia embraces zero-emission transport, the company has seen an opportunity in the Southern Hemisphere.

To establish itself in the Australian market, HESS asked The Ink Bureau to work on marketing collateral, including a Capability Statement – a brief document distilling the benefits of choosing HESS vehicles.
