Under the contract, New Flyer can provide a wide range of products on its proven Xcelsior® platform, including 35-foot and 40-foot buses offered in zero-emission electric, low-emission diesel-electric hybrid, low-emission compressed natural gas, and clean diesel propulsions.

Q'STRAINT/Sure-Lok partners with All Wheels Up 

Q’STRAINT/Sure-Lok is forming a strategic partnership involving trade show promotions with All Wheels Up, a non-profit advocacy group that promotes airline wheelchair securement.

All Wheels Up plans to achieve their goal of lobbying for standardized airline wheelchair securement regulation by performing quality assurance measures in the form of wheelchair crash tests, working closely with airline regulators like the FAA, creating awareness through video airline securement simulation production, and completing feasibility studies for airport safety.

In the partnership, Q’STRAINT will be matching every $5 to All Wheels Up, for everyone who visits the Q’STRAINT tradeshow booth and participates in the Elements Matching Game — a popular arcade game based on the periodic table.
