New Flyer Industries, Inc. (“New Flyer” or the “Company”), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in Canada and the United States and Alexander Dennis Limited (“Alexander Dennis”), the United Kingdom’s largest manufacturer of transit buses, double-decker buses and motor coaches, announced today that the manufacture of the 30-foot and 35-foot medium duty bus will transition in the fourth quarter of 2017 from New Flyer’s St. Cloud, Minnesota plant to Alexander Dennis’s new facility in Nappanee, Indiana.

In 2012, New Flyer and Alexander Dennis entered into a joint venture to collaborate and introduce a medium-duty low-floor bus in North America. Since 2014, 200 Buy America compliant MiDi® buses have been deployed in community shuttle service, and to corporate campuses and universities throughout North America.

“We were very pleased to collaborate with Alexander Dennis to launch the MiDi® in North America, having delivered buses to 22 operators in Canada and US,” said Wayne Joseph, President, Transit Bus Business. “The decision to terminate the joint venture and transition the product to Alexander Dennis was a mutual one, allowing New Flyer to expand the production capacity of St. Cloud, Minnesota facility for our industry leading Xcelsior heavy-duty transit bus, and Alexander Dennis to combine manufacturing of the bus with their double-deck Enviro500 series bus in Nappanee, Indiana.”

Alexander Dennis is a leader in the manufacture of durable and reliable midi buses, having delivered over 16,000 vehicles of this class globally, as well as being the world’s largest double-deck bus manufacturer. The company has a strong and well-established North American presence dating back to 2004 when Alexander Dennis Inc (“ADI”) was formed.

Colin Robertson, Chief Executive at Alexander Dennis commented,“We have enjoyed a strong and supportive relationship with New Flyer since the very start of our joint venture. It has been a privilege to partner with such a respected player in the North American market and after this promising start, now is the right time for us to take full ownership of this product. We are looking forward to this new chapter and to bringing the product to our own manufacturing facility in Nappanee.”

With the termination of the joint venture, the manufacture, sales, marketing and aftermarket parts sales for this bus will be transitioned to ADI with the full support of New Flyer. New Flyer has recently completed manufacturing for all firm orders, and will continue to support all commitments made to existing MiDi® customers for care and product support.
