Davies Brothers of Pencader were established in 1926 with a service from Carmarthen to Lampeter.  This family business became a major operators of local buses through the acquisition of a string of other independents to become one of the largest in South Wales. They took over Eynon's of Trimsaran and won much of Crosville Cymru's tendered network between Cardigan and Carmarthen.

Their fleet was a mixture of second hand vehicles but in later years Bedford chassis were the prefered choice for new vehicles.

Problems started for Davies Bros. in 1997 when their recently aquired Trimaran network passed to First's SWT subsidary and finally in June 1999, they were taken into administrative receivership. Their remaining registratiopns were taken over by First Cymru.
