Higer was recently named as one of China's 500 most valuable brands for the seventh time in a row. This is a list reserved for only the top contributors to the Chinese economy. With a brand value of the equivalent of $AUD2.4 billion Higer is focused on technology and innovation.

Higer exports to more than 100 countries on continents with the some of the most unforgiving terrain in the world including Africa, the Middle East, Commonwealth of Independent States, Southeast Asia, the Americas and Oceania.

In 2008, the first Higer bus came to Australia as WMC Group became the Importer of Higer Bus and Coach. The first model to appear on Australian shores was the versatile H9280 Midi Boss. The equally efficient H12 series Road Bosses and H8200 Ryder arrived shortly after with H7170 Munro, the most recent addition to the Australian market. 
The brand has been well received by customers. Testament to the quality of these vehicles is that they have made their way into iconic Australian fleets such as Murray's and Hopkinsons.

Higer Bus and Coach has further embedded itself in the Australian bus industry landscape by becoming active members of the key state-based industry bodies; Bus NSW, BIC and the Queensland Bus Industry Council.

Higer's quality control process is tailored for the Australian market by the placement of an engineer at the factory in China whose focus is on inspecting buses manufactured for the Australian market before they leave the factory.

Higer is innovating the global bus industry one vehicle at a time.
