Starcraft honored by Ford for 8th straight year

Posted on June 10, 2014

For the eighth year in a row, Starcraft Bus is Ford’s top volume pool account in the bus category.

Over that period of time, Starcraft bus purchased and sold more Ford E350/E450 and most recently F550/F650 bus chassis than any other bus manufacturer in America. Starcraft Bus attributes its ongoing success to an increasing demand for shuttle buses in the U.S. as the economy continues to grow, as well as having the best dealer network in the industry.

“We are honored to receive this award from Ford for the eighth year in a row and we believe that it can be attributed to in part to the quality product that the Ford chassis delivers, said David Wright, president of Starcraft Bus. “We strive to build the best bus in the industry by continuously improving quality, safety and customer satisfaction and we are proud to partner with Ford. We look forward to continuing our excellent relationship and success with Ford for many years to come.”

Starcraft Bus, a division of Forest River Inc., is owned by Berkshire Hathaway and located in Goshen, Ind. Known for its commitment to quality and affordable transportation, Starcraft Bus services many markets including hotels, churches, retirement centers, tour operators and all aspects of public and private transportation.

Starcraft Bus proudly builds on Ford, GM and International chassis and is ADA compliant, QVM certified, ISO certified and Altoona-tested.
