Posted on March 25, 2010

WARRENVILLE, Ill. — IC Bus has entered into a supply agreement with Thor Industries Inc., a manufacturer of recreational vehicles and commercial buses.

Through the agreement, IC will exclusively provide mid-size, cutaway chassis to Thor Industries. Thor Industries' Champion, ElDorado National, General Coach and Goshen Coach vehicles will be built on the new IC Bus TC Series chassis.

The TC Series chassis will be powered by MaxxForce engines featuring Advanced EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) emissions technology. The engines use an in-cylinder approach to meet EPA 2010 emissions requirements.

"We're proud to work with IC Bus to deliver customer-friendly products to the market," said Andrew Imanse, group president, Thor Commercial Bus division. "This agreement with IC Bus allows us to improve efficiencies while providing our customers with best-in-class chassis and engine technologies."

The TC Series chassis is available to customers in the U.S. and Canada and is supported by IC Bus’ dealer network.
