New Flyer Industries, Inc., the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in Canada and the United States, announced today that it has been selected to supply up to 27 heavy duty transit buses for the City of Sorel, Quebec, of which 12 are firm orders and 15 are options. This award marks the first sale of New Flyer low-floor buses to a Quebec-based transit agency since 1970, and is a direct outcome of the appointment of A. Girardin Inc. of Drummondville, Quebec announced on May 3, 2011, to sell and support New Flyer buses in the Province of Quebec.

New Flyer will provide La Régie de la Gare de Sorel the latest generation 40-foot Xcelsior model buses, powered with clean, efficient diesel engines. Girardin will provide local pre-delivery inspection services, field support, and parts support.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have taken this first step toward establishing a New Flyer presence in Quebec, a province in which we have not been able to sell buses for many decades,” said Paul Soubry, New Flyer’s President and CEO. “We are confident that the New Flyer buses will be well-received and will set a new standard for transit systems and private operators in the region. The combination of New Flyer buses and local Girardin service and support now provides an option for Quebec-based operators. We also believe that the selection of Xcelsior by the Transit Authority in Sorel validates the benefits of this high-quality bus with its light weight design and enhanced styling and maintenance features as well as a reduced operating cost profile so critical to today’s transit operators.”

Dave Girardin, President and CEO of A. Girardin Inc. added,“The contract for Sorel will help us blaze new frontiers into the heavy-duty segment of this market, just as we had anticipated when we established our alliance with New Flyer less than two months ago. Together, we can bring enhanced value to the Quebec transit operators.”

The first buses in this order are scheduled for delivery to Sorel in the fourth quarter of 2011.
