WARWICK, N.Y. — Trans Tech has awarded its 2016 Dealer of the Year award to Leonard Bus Sales of Deposit, New York.  

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, sales, 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 John Phraner, president of Trans Tech. “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.”

Phraner said that although Leonard Bus Sales was once again the clear choice to win the award, this year was a very tough decision, given the growth in its dealer network and the number of dealers that have expanded 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 Jon Leonard, vice president of Leonard Bus Sales. “There are a lot of outstanding Trans Tech dealers across the country, so 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, New York, and four full-service facilities across upstate New York in Bergen, Deposit, Rome, and Saratoga Springs.
