NEBR launches new maintenance facility in Boston
North Eastern Bus Rebuilders, Inc. (NEBR), the largest bus rebuilder in the Northeast, has launched operations in Boston with a major contract to support the operations on the new bus fleet recently delivered to the market by New Flyer Industries.
NEBR has recently completed work on a 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art maintenance facility, located at 51 Industrial Drive in the Readville neighborhood of Boston.
The new buses were manufactured by New Flyer Industries (NFI), which contracted with NEBR to warranty and commission the vehicles. The new high-powered, heavy-duty Xcelsior buses are powered by clean, hybrid-drive (compressed natural gas and diesel-electric). The hybrid propulsion systems are manufactured by BAE and serviced by NEBR.
Brian Kaminskey, President of NEBR, which is headquartered in New York, said he is excited about the company’s expansion into the Greater Boston and other regional Massachusetts markets.
“Strong business relationships, and our staff of specialty skilled technicians, are the cornerstone of our business which drives NEBR’s footprint and expansion into markets such as Boston,” Kaminskey said.
NEBR’s facilities offer the only one-stop service for the transit industry, providing major accident repairs, drive-line overhaul, transmission work, and modified refurbishments, as well as inventory support. NEBR Specializes in alternative fuel technologies, Extended Life Warranty Programs and Fleet Consulting. NEBR also provides field support for bus breakdowns and repairs at off-site locations.
NEBR is expanding its Readville operations and adding personnel to provide warranty service for the ever growing needs of the Massachusetts transit Industry.
