WARRENVILLE, Ill. — IC Bus has won a bid to manufacture 800 to 900 school buses for the state of North Carolina. IC will deliver the CE Series buses next spring through its North Carolina dealer, White’s International Trucks.

Three school bus manufacturers competed for the bid, a process that began in mid-September. “For the North Carolina bid, IC Bus worked closely with White’s International,” said John McKinney, president of IC Bus. “The team from White’s International has a keen understanding of the needs of this customer. They helped demonstrate how IC Bus could be a partner to them during and after the sale.”

North Carolina plans to use the buses in school districts across the state. The more than 800 CE Series buses are funded as part of the state’s annual budget appropriation for school bus replacement.

The buses will be powered by MaxxForce engines.
