Birmingham, Ala.’s Thrasher Brothers Trailways, which will celebrate its 45th year in business this year, added a new Van Hool TD925 double-deck coach from ABC Companies.

The new coach features a Cummins engine, Allison transmission, new upholstery by Sardo Interiors, a REI video system, an updated 110-volt plug system at every seat, and a beautiful silver paint for the finish.

ABC Companies also announced that its Winter Garden, Fla. location has received the Environment & Safety Elite Award.

The company joins a select group of automotive, truck and equipment dealerships, and service companies that have demonstrated dedication to excellence in regards to overall concern for their community, their employees and their customers. To achieve this award, ABC Companies participated in a rigorous review process and proved adherence to industry best practices in all six program categories, including: Safety Systems, Environmental Systems, Hazard Communication, Loss Control, Emergency Response, and other Facility Specific Requirements.

“The goal of the Environment & Safety Elite Award is to reward automotive businesses that go above and beyond simply complying with environmental, health and safety regulations,” said Eric Schmitz, board chairman of the Clean Auto Alliance. “More and more often, consumers prefer to do business with companies that value good environmental practices and the safety of their employees, and this recognition program is a way for businesses to show their customers and their community that they are committed to exercising environmental, health and safety best practices. That’s a big competitive advantage that these businesses deserve to have.”
