ABC Companies to manufacture Alexander Dennis Enviro line at Nappanee
In addition to the official launch of the newly revamped Van Hool TX and CX coaches, more big news is coming from the ABC Companies’ Xtreme Event taking place this week in Winter Garden, FL.
ABC Companies announced this morning, November 21, it has entered into a manufacturing agreement with Alexander Dennis Limited, Inc. to assemble the Enviro500 and the 40-, 45, and 60-foot Enviro400, low-floor, double-decker buses.
Assembly will take place at the ABC Companies refurbishment facility in Nappanee, IN, with the plan currently to begin production in Q4 2014.
Under a separate agreement, Alexander Dennis is naming ABC Companies as its exclusive distributor for the Enviro400 open-top tourist bus in the United States with the exception of Hawaii.
“Our agreement with Alexander Dennis effectively expands our footprint to offer American-built products for transit and tour operators throughout North America,” said Dane Cornell, chairman and CEO, ABC Companies. “The Enviro500 has been operating in North America for over 10 years, and is now an ideal addition to the ABC Companies portfolio of award winning transit solutions.”
