Tornado adds 5 Van Hool double-deckers

Posted on June 14, 2013

Dallas-based Tornado Bus Co. recently took delivery of five Van Hool TD925 81-passenger double-deck motorcoaches from ABC Companies.

The coaches, powered by Cummins ISX engines coupled to Allison B500R transmissions, are all ADA-compliant and have luxury entertainment systems.

Founded by Vicente and Juan Vazquez in 1986 with a single van, Tornado has grown to 70 coaches. Operating out of terminals in nine states they now offer scheduled service throughout the central and southern U.S., providing international connections with other transportation companies such as Zima Real, Estrella Blanca and Autobuses de Oriente.

ABC also announced it signed an agreement with IBP Industries Inc. to become the firm’s new distribution partner in North America.

IBP Industries Inc. is a designer and fabricator of body components for the motorcoach and mass transit markets. A 25-year industry veteran, IBP is recognized as a high-quality components supplier — designing, engineering and manufacturing a complete line of body parts at their Florida-based state-of-the-art facility.

Under the new deal, ABC will have sole distribution rights of IBP’s exterior bus components, which encompass a robust inventory of body parts for major coach models such as MCI, Gillig, Prevost and others.
