MCI moving Orlando center to larger site

Posted on October 18, 2012

Motor Coach Industries (MCI) is moving its Orlando Sales and Service Center to a larger site nearby. The new facility, formerly operated by Daimler Buses North America, was acquired by MCI when it acquired distribution rights of the Setra brand.

MCI will close its current facility and open the Winter Garden, Fla. facility on Friday. The facility is significantly larger and features additional maintenance bays, a paint booth and body shop. Operators can still count on the same exceptional staff, which includes MCI and Setra factory-trained technicians. In addition, the site includes new and pre-owned MCI and Setra coaches available for immediate delivery.

As the leading manufacturer of coaches in North America, only MCI is able to offer bodywork, retrofits and major repairs to strict OEM standards, using OEM parts and OEM-trained technicians who have access to all original specifications. The new facility also offers a comfortable, well-appointed drivers’ lounge.

To celebrate the move, the facility is offering 20% off of any customer’s first service at the facility, up to $200; the offer is good through Dec. 31, 2012. Customers should call for additional details and restrictions.

MCI also announced that Lee Kemp is joining its Public Sector Team as business development manager, Southern Region. Held in high esteem by industry peers for his experience and expertise in all facets of public transit, Kemp will be responsible for representing MCI to Public Sector accounts in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado. He reports to Tom Wagner, executive director, business development, public sector.

Kemp was formerly Western Region Sales Manager for Daimler Buses North America, where he received the 2010 North American Salesman of the Year Award. Prior to that, Kemp had a 17-year career with Stewart & Stevenson, a 110-year old manufacturer and provider of specialized equipment to a number of industries, where he began as GM, transit products; he was eventually named director in R&D engineering and customer support.

Kemp began his career in public transit at Denver’s Regional Transportation District, where he was a master mechanic, earning promotions and, eventually, responsibility for fleet operations quality control.
