The new 67,000-square-foot facility in Hayward will add 20 new jobs.

Prevost has announced the opening of its largest service center in North America located in Hayward, Calif.

“We are very happy to open this new service center in the Bay area, which represents an investment of $14 million. We want to provide the ultimate customer experience focusing on uptime, reliability and responsiveness,” said Håkan Agnevall, president of Volvo Buses. “We want to make a difference by providing a great product, supported by a great team that you can rely on every day. Prevost has a very distinct culture of service that makes it a vital part of Volvo.”

The new service center in Hayward adds 20 new jobs to the 56 jobs Prevost already created in California with its service center in Mira Loma. Prevost plans to add another 10 employees in Hayward gradually in 2020, which will mean a total of 86 employees in California.

“This inauguration of our largest service center in North America, a 67,000-square-foot facility on the West Coast, to serve the northern California coach market and tech companies in the area, is a historic moment for Prevost. This will continue to reinforce Prevost’s leadership position in the North American coach market,” said François Tremblay, vice president and general manager at Prevost.

Kim Huggett, president and CEO, Hayward Chamber of Commerce, added, “We are excited to have Prevost in Hayward not just because of the jobs it will bring and contributions to the local economy, but because of the kind of company it is. Prevost is an industry leader because of its products, sales and innovation and for its commitment to the communities where it locates its service centers. Adding Prevost to our business community means we will have a strategic partner in working with local government to continue our strong economic development.”
