Leonard Bus Sales Keeps Streak Alive with Fourth Straight Trans Tech Dealer of the Year Award

Saratoga Springs, NY, June 15, 2017 — Trans Tech announced that they have awarded their 2016 Dealer of the Year Award to Leonard Bus Sales.  This marks the fourth straight year the family-owned school bus dealer has received the award.  Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year Award is based on exceptional dealer performance and dedication to best-in-class customer support, community involvement, and growth in market share.

“It is my privilege to once again present Leonard Bus Sales with Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year,” said Trans Tech President, John Phraner.  “Leonard Bus Sales is a remarkable company.  Their entire team is committed to providing best-in-class customer support and investing in the success of their customers.  We have a great dealer network, but Leonard Bus Sales continues to be the national leader and now a four-time winner of the Trans Tech Dealer of the Year award.”

Trans Tech has expanded its market across the country by growing its dealer network and bringing customer-inspired innovation to its industry-leading Type-A school buses.  Phraner said that although Leonard Bus Sales was once again the clear choice to win the dealer of the year award, this year was a very tough decision given the growth in our dealer network and the number of dealers that have done such a great job in expanding their respective markets.

“Receiving Trans Tech’s prestigious Dealer of the Year Award for a fourth straight year is almost unimaginable and a true testament to our talented team,” said Leonard Bus Sales Vice President Jon Leonard.  “There are a lot of outstanding Trans Tech dealers across the country, and winning this award for a record fourth straight year demonstrates our success in providing unmatched customer support to our school transportation partners.”

Leonard Bus Sales operates a Trans Tech-only facility in Garden City Park, NY and four full-service facilities across Upstate New York in Bergen, Deposit, Rome and Saratoga Springs.
