Prevost Opens Production Line At Expanded Nova Bus Facility

Prevost, a division of the Volvo group specializing in touring coach and bus assembly, recently opened its first U.S. production line in Plattsburgh, NY, in the expanded facility of its sister company Nova Bus.

The company invested $26 million in the Plattsburgh facility to increase its size by 10,000 square feet, which will accommodate an assembly production line. This project is tied to a $164 million New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) award to Prevost to build 300 over-the-road commuter buses.

Once complete, the expansion project will create more than 50 jobs at the facility. The Prevost contract, combined with a $195 million MTA contract for 414 Nova Bus vehicles for MTA New York City Transit--the agency's largest single order to the manufacturer in its history, with the potential of up to 700 more buses--will bring the total number of employees at the facility to more than 250.
