New Flyer Opens Manufacturing Facility

26 January 2017

New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of Canada’s New Flyer Industries Inc., one of the largest heavy-duty transit bus and motor coach manufacturers in North America, announced the opening of a new component manufacturing and assembly facility in Jamestown, N.Y.

The 40,000 sq. ft. facility will start by manufacturing certain components for up to 10 New Flyer Xcelsior buses per week, which will then be assembled at New Flyer transit bus production facilities in St Cloud, Minn.

“New Flyer has a long standing relationship with New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, having more than 2200 New Flyer transit buses delivered or on order over the past two decades,” said Paul Soubry, president and chief executive officer of New Flyer. “We have been actively looking to expand our presence within the US and specifically the state of New York to enhance our state content and support the local economy. Further the New Flyer team is now working with our motor coach subsidiary MCI, to evaluate opportunities to manufacture motor coach components at the same facility.”

New Flyer has signed a five year lease on the commercial building with options to extend to 15 years. The facility is now fully operational and is estimated to create 40 new local jobs.
