Additional bus components will also be supplied by Illinois-based businesses, such as door systems by Vapor Bus International from Buffalo Grove, Ill.
The buses will be assembled in Nova Bus’ Upstate New York plant. Each Nova LFS will contribute to the creation or retention of a total of 1.1 quality manufacturing jobs and 5 indirect jobs.
North Country Chamber of Commerce President Garry Douglas welcomed the announcement: “This order is great news not only for Nova Bus but for the many suppliers in the region who will take part in delivering this contract. We now look forward to continuing to work with Nova as a central player in Plattsburgh's emergence as North America's premier center for the production of 21st century transportation equipment. Onward and upward for Nova and our transit cluster.”
