Plaxton launched the President model in 1997 but construction of the type did not commence until 1999. DAF was the first chassis manufacture to team up with Plaxton, offering a product on the DB250LF chassis. Dennis closely followed with the Trident, and Volvo with the B7TL. The latter chassis proved to be most popular on the President. Large orders for the President were received from First, Go-Ahead London, Metroline, London Untied and Arriva London. Each operator had their preference to the chassis underneath the President bodywork. In 2001 Plaxton became part of the Transbus International consortium, and the President model was built alongside the ALX400, a model that eventually replaced the President in 2005.
