The company is a high quality bus operation based in Colchester, carrying around one million passengers each year. Hedingham operates 86 buses and it principally operates a mix of school and local bus contracts and commercial. The business has three depots at Clacton, Hedingham and Kelvedon.
Since being acquired by Go-Ahead over thirty low-floor easy access buses have been acquired to replace older step entrance buses.
