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.
