In 2003, Ritchies Coachlines purchased 10 chassis designed by Designline. They were built under Designtech, a subsidiary of Designline. The type of bus is called Macrotech. The chassis and the B43D+17 integral bodies are derived from the MAN A80 chassis (12.223HOCL / 17.223 HOCL). The bus is fitted with Detroit Diesel Series 40 engine and Allison automatic transmission, which is rather rare among New Zealand buses built in recent years.
