Starcraft Bus Named Ford's Top Volume Pool Account for 6th Conescutive Year

For 2011, and the sixth year in a row, Ford has announced that Starcraft Bus is the top volume pool account for shuttle buses. For six consecutive years, Starcraft bus has purchased and sold more Ford E350/E450 bus chassis than any other bus manufacturer in the United States. The reason for Starcraft’s ongoing success has been the continued diversification of its product line and a higher demand for shuttle bases based on the economic recovery taking place throughout the United States. Starcraft Bus continues to be North America’s largest shuttle bus company six years running.

David Wright, president of Starcraft Bus, says, “We are proud to receive this award from Ford for the sixth year in a row and believe this is a reflection of the high quality product that we deliver utilizing the Ford chassis. We continue to raise the bar in quality, safety and customer satisfaction and are proud to partner with Ford and their tough, time-tested, E-Series chassis. Our customers have come to expect the high quality and reliability that a Ford chassis delivers. We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Ford as we move forward into the next decade.”
