Volvo Breaks Ground for Nova Bus, Prevost Customer Delivery Center

Volvo broke ground Sept. 29 in Plattsburgh, NY, for a new customer delivery center serving Nova Bus and Prevost, bus manufacturers and members of the Volvo Group.

The new facility, scheduled to open in 2016, is located in a separate building on the same campus as the Nova Bus/Prevost bus manufacturing plant. Its purpose is to provide a space dedicated to bus purchasers when they come to take delivery of their buses, including customer offices as well as 10 spaces where customer representatives can inspect buses before delivery.

“Partnerships are at the heart of our business,” said Ralph Acs, Volvo Buses senior vice president business region Americas, “and we are proud to mark a new stage in the synergy of Prevost and Nova Bus with the building of this shared state-of-the-art customer delivery center.”

Volvo said the new delivery center will benefit the economy not only in New York State, but also in neighboring states and Canadian provinces. The project is linked to growth projection that should have a positive impact on the supply chains on both sides of the border.
