The 300,000-square-foot facility will fabricate parts for the manufacture of New Flyer transit buses, MCI motorcoaches, and spare parts for NFI Parts. Production is expected to commence during the second quarter of 2018 and, once fully operational by December 2019, the facility expects to employ up to 550 people.
