For the first time ever, Forest River Inc.’s three bus divisions swept the top three spots in Ford Motor Company’s annual list of top volume shuttle bus pool account results, according to a company release. Starcraft Bus, Glaval Bus and Elkhart Coach finished first, second and third, respectively.
David Wright of Forest River stated, “Starcraft Bus has held the top position with Ford for 11 years in a row with Elkhart Coach and Glaval Bus occupying the top three spots at various times during this period. However, 2016 was a first for Forest River, as our bus divisions placed first, second and third for the entire year in Ford’s rankings. We are very proud to receive this honor from Ford.”
“The goal of Forest River Bus has always been to build a product that is unmatched in quality, safety and customer satisfaction. This award is a reflection of both our dealers’ and employees’ commitment to building the best buses in the industry,” commented Pete Liegl, president and CEO of Forest River.
Ford will present this award to Forest River at its upcoming annual pool account meeting on May 4 in San Diego.
