The 95th anniversary of Prevost was commemorated in Sainte-Claire, Quebec in June with a celebration that included food, entertainment, coaches to explore, and tours of the Prevost manufacturing plant.

Scores of special guests including past and present employees, government officials, and people from the community attended. The extensive vehicle display at the celebration featured current Prevost model coaches — including the newly redesigned X3-45, a converted motorhome, and a corporate coach, as well as a mobile service van and a beautiful 1952 Prevost Citadin antique bus restored by the Heritage Society of Sainte-Claire.

“The 95th Anniversary celebration in Quebec was a huge success as we had more than 4,500 people joining us at the factory,” said Prevost GM Francois Tremblay. “I’m honored that so many families and special guests were there to celebrate with their Prevost family. We take great pride in what we do and to be able to share 95 years of such strong heritage with our community was a very special experience for us.”
