Nova Bus - 1993-present - Saint-Eustache, Quebec, Canada & Roswell, New Mexico (closed 2002) & Schenectady, New York (Closed 2002)
Nova BUS was founded in 1993 by some former Bombardier executives and a venture capital banker acquired the assets of the MCI bus factory in Saint-Eustache Québec which manufactured the MCI Classic. Subsequently, Nova acquired the assets of the TMC factory in New Mexico that manufactures the RTS line of buses.
In 1995, their low floor line of buses called the LFS was introduced. In 1998, Prevost Car Incorporated acquired Nova BUS. Prevost in turn is owned by Volvo Bus of Sweden and the Henly's Group of the UK.
xxxxxxxThe adventure of Nova Bus began in 1993, when a newly formed company acquired the MCI bus manufacturing plant in Saint-Eustache, Quebec, and relaunched the urban transit bus manufacturing operations under the name of Nova Bus. In March 1998, Prevost Car Inc., a joint subsidiary of Volvo Bus Corporation and Henlys Group PLC, acquired the assets of Nova Bus.
Nova Bus operates two plants, both located in the Province of Quebec. The Saint-Eustache plant is where the assembly of the Nova LFS takes place and the Saint-Francois-du-Lac plant is where the structure of our vehicles as well as parts and components used in manufacturing buses are produced.
Today, Nova Bus stands as a North American leader in the design, production and marketing of urban transit buses.
