Beulas SAU is a Spanish-based coachbuilder. The company builds a range of coach bodies on a variety of chassis. Their products are sold throughout Europe.

HistoryEdit

The company was established in 1934 by Ramón Beulas and Narcís Pujol in Arbúcies, a village in the Selva county of the province of Girona, Catalonia, Spain. It was (after Indcar and Ayats) the third coach-building company to be founded in this small town, which offered the advantage of being in the midst of a densely forested area ("Selva" means "forest" in Catalan), useful since the bodyworks were still made of wood at the time. During the Spanish Civil War, Beulas built ambulance bodies for the army. For the next three decades, Beulas remained a small coachbuilder which hand-crafted each bodywork to order, making 6-10 per year. During the 1960s, the company grew steadily and components bagan to be standardized, allowing for an increase in production volume. In the 1970s and 1980s the company multiplied the size of the factory premises and introduced more modern designs, and in the 1990s they began their international distribution, first in Germany and the UK, and later in the rest of Europe. Today, Beulas has close to 200 employees, and produces around 200 vehicles a year.
