ABC Companies inks exclusive distribution deal with IBP Industries
ABC Companies has signed an agreement with IBP Industries, Inc. to become the firm’s new distribution partner in North America. Under the new deal, ABC will have sole distribution rights of IBP’s exterior bus components which encompass an inventory of body parts for major coach models such as MCI, GILLIG, Prevost and others. IBP is a leading designer and fabricator of body components for the motorcoach and mass transit markets.
“This is an important strategic initiative for ABC and our customers,” says Dane Cornell, CEO and chairman of ABC Companies. “Our exclusive partnership greatly enhances the ABC Parts business capability – significantly expanding inventory levels of body parts which will be made available under the ABC Select Parts offerings.”
“The new partnership is a very natural fit,” states Al Runfola, founder and CEO of IBP Industries. “ABC’s North American presence and established distribution network broaden both our supply chains and give ABC customers more convenience and access to the body components they require for all makes and models.”
ABC stocked inventory levels integrate a comprehensive selection of body components with plans for new product releases throughout 2013 and beyond.
