Patrick Jonckheere is the great-grandson of Henry Jonckheere, who started a carriage workshop in 1881. His workshop became the Jonckheere bus builder, now absorbed by VDL. Patrick decided to re-enter the bus marker with his Mercury Trading company, founded in 1991. He created his own brand, Delta Bus & Coach, and has vehicles for niche markets built in a factory in Portugal. A low-entry medium-sized urban bus on MAN chassis, the CITY LE, was presented at Kortrijk and in 2013 was delivered to Bermuda.
