Dedication to Customer Support Leads to Leonard Bus Sales Winning Trans Tech Dealer of the Year Award for 3rd Straight Year

March 25, 2016, Deposit, N.Y. — Leonard Bus Sales announced today that the company has received Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year Award for an unprecedented third year in a row.  Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year Award is based on exceptional dealer performance in several key areas including dedication to customer support, commitment to school bus safety, and growth in market share.

“It is an honor to present Leonard Bus Sales with Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year for the third straight year,” said Trans Tech President John Phraner.  “Leonard Bus Sales’ commitment to providing industry-leading customer support, school bus safety and their continued investment in the success of their customers, made them the clear choice once again.”

“Receiving Trans Tech’s prestigious Dealer of the Year Award for a third straight year is a tremendous accomplishment for our entire company,” said Leonard Bus Sales Vice President Jon Leonard.  “There are a lot of great Trans Tech dealers across the country, so winning this award is truly a testament to our talented team and our commitment to provide unmatched customer support to our school transportation partners.”

Phraner said even as Trans Tech expands its market across the country by growing its dealer network and bringing customer-inspired innovation to its industry-leading Type-A school buses, Leonard Bus Sales is still the leader in sales and support of Trans Tech Type-A school buses.

Phraner presented the 2015 Dealer of the Year Award to Leonard Bus Sales Director of Sales and Marketing Frank Continetti and other members of the Leonard Bus Sales team during a ceremony held at Trans Tech’s corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Warwick, NY on March 11th.
