SALINA, Kan., June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ElDorado, a member of REV Group (REV), a leading manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire & emergency and recreation markets, maintains its momentum with 37 years of history.
"We keep in touch with the foundation of our company; always remembering why we are here; to build a quality product in a safe way – connecting and protecting." said ElDorado Vice President and General Manger, Colby Bertrand. "We recently celebrated several 30 year anniversaries with our employees, so these people are highly experienced and take a lot of pride in what they are building. When you combine safety, quality, and experience - you can't go wrong."
ElDorado is proudly filling orders for the U.S. Federal Government (GSA), Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (RGRTA), and Southern Maryland multi-year contracts, PACE in Chicago, the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, the State of Iowa, and Illinois Department of Transportation, just to name a few. Other ElDorado customers you might recognize are Marriott, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent a Car, and Hilton Hotels and Resorts – several buses are presently being built and shipped to multiple locations for these legacy customers from San Diego to New York.
ElDorado is the flagship not only in the REV family of bus products but also in the bus industry due to its exceptional and unique honeycomb composite fiberglass body. ElDorado is now in the best position in its long history; backed by its +$2 billion strong parent company. "Transit agencies have always turned to ElDorado for reliability and longevity" David Schetky, Sales Manager at one of the nation's largest bus dealers – Schetky Northwest said. "We have seen a trend with dealers trying to sell transit agencies lower quality buses strictly to be low cost in a bid situation. This is a disservice. Customers in-the-know recognize that there is more than just initial cost. An ElDorado will provide the lowest cost of ownership for the entire life of a bus. ElDorado revolutionized bus construction 37 years ago, and Schetky Northwest is excited about what's next."
ElDorado and Salina have other exciting news on the horizon. "With the strength and success of the ElDorado and ElDorado Mobility brands being built in Salina, we are excited to announce that a new and innovative product will also be built in Salina. This location has the capacity and the know-how to kick off this new product and we know it will be a great success for REV and for the people of Salina." said REV Bus Group President, John Walsh. This new product will have several models that are built in REV's Salina and South Hutchinson manufacturing plants and will be available for order beginning early summer.
