Head Mechanics Association Sees Firsthand how Leonard Bus Sales is a One-Stop-Shop for Sales, Service, Parts and Training


August 6, 2013, Syracuse, N.Y. – Leonard Bus Sales team attended the New York Head Mechanics Association’s annual Summer Safety & Training Seminar last week to share their expertise and to let the fleet mechanics and school bus technicians in attendance know that Leonard Bus Sales can serve as a one-stop-shop for sales, service, training and parts for all school bus fleets.

“This is a great opportunity to share knowledge, to learn from each other and to build a stronger relationship with the people working on the buses in the districts every day,” said Leonard Bus Sales Service Director Mark  Ingham. “We want them to know they can turn to Leonard Bus Sales for all their needs, whether it service, parts or training needs regardless of the type of bus they are running. We’re here to help with all the support they need to keep their fleets running well.”

The event, held at the Holiday Inn in Liverpool, N.Y., was attended by more than 400 Head Mechanics and Mechanics from across New York State.  Leonard Bus Sales had both parts and sales experts on hand at two separate booths. The team also brought along two buses, which included an IC Bus CE Series and Trans Tech SST Type-A.

The gathering included seminars and presentations on a host of issues, including On Board Diagnostics, Storage and Handling of DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) and the latest on lubrication.  LBS Training Director Marv Wood was one of the presenters at the gathering, leading a class on After Treatment System Maintenance and Troubleshooting.
