AEC was a United Kingdom based vehicle manufacturer which built buses, motorcoaches and lorries from 1912 until 1979. The acronym stood for the Associated Equipment Company, but this name was hardly ever used; instead it traded under the AEC and ACLO brands.
While famously associated with London's Routemaster buses, AEC supplied commercial vehicles to many companies both domestically and around the world.
