New Flyer taps Girardin for heavy-duty bus distribution

Posted on May 4, 2011

New Flyer Industries Inc. announced its Canadian operating subsidiary, New Flyer Industries Canada ULC, appointed A. Girardin Inc. of Drummondville, Quebec, as the exclusive distributor of New Flyer buses in the Province of Quebec.

Girardin, a manufacturer of school and shuttle buses and distributor for several other brands of medium-duty buses, has also been appointed as New Flyer's exclusive distributor of transit buses to a range of private bus operators across Canada.

New Flyer, headquartered in Winnipeg, has been delivering buses to Canadian customers since 1930. This agreement allows New Flyer to maintain the strong relationships directly with its existing Canadian transit customers, while allowing Girardin to introduce New Flyer to a new group of customers, according to the company.

"The agreement goes beyond selling buses and also encompasses Girardin providing spare parts, training, publications and other services to those customers," said New Flyer's President/CEO Paul Soubry.

In turn, the addition of New Flyer buses to Girardin's line of products, which currently includes smaller Girardin minibuses and Blue Bird school and shuttle buses, will permit Girardin to offer a more comprehensive product portfolio to its customers.
