Thor purchases Federal Coach assets

Posted on January 9, 2013

Thor Industries Inc. announced its Champion Bus Inc. subsidiary purchased the bus operation assets of Federal Coach for $6.8 million in cash.

Champion plans to move the assets and begin production of Federal Coach buses at its Imlay City, Mich. production facility in early calendar 2013.

“We are pleased to add the Federal Coach line of luxury buses to our family of brands,” said Andrew Imanse, Thor’s Bus Group president. “The addition of the Federal Coach line offers Thor’s Bus Group both potential operating synergies and access to important markets within the industry. The purchase of the Federal Coach assets, like the purchase of the assets of Krystal Infinity LLC, dba, Krystal Enterprises in September 2012, brings an upscale, high-end retail product that complements our existing product lines, including Champion’s Defender, Crusader and Challenger bus lines.”

Federal Coach produces a full-line of shuttle, executive and limousine buses ranging in capacity from 12 to 44 passengers, with annual sales of approximately $25 million.
