Starcraft Bus named Ford's top volume pool account for 10th year

Posted on February 8, 2016

Ford announced that Starcraft Bus is the top volume pool account in the bus category for the 10th year in a row.

Starcraft Bus has purchased and sold more Ford E-Series chassis than any other bus manufacturer in North America since 2006.

“We are especially proud to have received this prestigious award from Ford for the tenth consecutive year,” says David Wright, president of Starcraft Bus. “We believe this award is a reflection of the dedication of our team members and dealers. Our team takes pride in the Starcraft brand and continues to build buses that provide safe, affordable transportation. Our dealers stand behind our product and continue to out perform the competition year after year. This award wouldn’t be possible without them.”

Jay Nine, regional sales manager for Starcraft Bus, adds, “It has been great to partner with Ford over the years as they continue to meet the ever changing needs of our customers. The recent release of the new Ford Transit, along with the excellent response we’ve seen from our dealer network, once again shows why Ford is the leader in the commercial bus industry.”

Starcraft Bus, a division of Forest River, Inc., is owned by Berkshire Hathaway. The company, located in Goshen, Ind., is North America’s largest shuttle bus manufacturer and is known for its commitment to provide quality and affordable transportation.
