Next month marks two years since the administration of Wrightbus and the loss of 1,200 jobs, a turbulent close to more than 70 years in the ownership of founding family, the Wrights. 

More happily, October then marks the second anniversary of its purchase from administration by industrialist Jo Bamford, the son of chairman of equipment giant JCB, Lord Bamford.
