Custom Denning Phoenix

“If you looked twice, it’s a Denning”! Although this was the catch cry back in the day, it’s certainly still a valid one in 2021!!

Denning buses are still making a statement, and even more so now that they are well within the pricing caps for school bus operators. The same iconic quality and reliability that Australian bus operators have come to know, trust, and enjoy, and it’s now within their reach!

The advancements in technology and the processes undertaken across the Custom Denning group have allowed for increases in efficiencies, enabling the group to offer reductions in pricing without compromising quality, placing the Denning brand squarely within reach of all contracted bus operators.

One of the new technologies being introduced, is the implementation of the Stainless-steel frame technology, which will reduce maintenance requirements, prolong bus life, and allow for a reduction in weight.

Production of the Iconic Denning Phoenix models continues to flow from the Acacia Ridge facility in Qld, and the company confirms that the classic Denning Phoenix School buses and Low floors will continue to be a part of the standard product line with the Phoenix school bus also being added to the list of products on offer for supply on European / OEM chassis.


A ZF upgrade option has been added to the list of enhancements for customers with a preference for European drivelines featuring familiar components such as Wabco suspension and Knorr Bremse Braking system.


It has also been revealed that a new line of Denning Phoenix school bus is currently in the design phase and due to be launched Q1 of 2022, allowing operators the choice of the “Classic” Denning Phoenix, or the new modern and sleek design Denning school bus.


Many school bus operators have taken advantage of the restructured pricing and quick turnaround in supply, purchasing “ready to go” stock units. With more stock buses available, please contact our friendly staff to discuss.
