Van Hool to expand manufacturing to U.S.

Posted on January 11, 2012

As part of a long-term strategy to secure their current position in the American marketplace, ABC's long-time partner, Van Hool, is planning a capital project that will expand manufacturing capabilities beyond their current Belgium location.

The company's decision is driven solely by their commitment to invest in American distribution of products that are designed to offer North American operators consistent long-term pricing, greater scalability, as well as reduced cycle time from order to delivery.

"ABC is proud to support and share the long-term vision of our valued Van Hool partner," said ABC's President/CEO Dane Cornell. "The commitment to expanding production capabilities directly correlates with growing U.S. demand for European technology that enables American operators to continuously evolve and innovate fleet operations."
