HIGH POINT, N.C. — Thomas Built Buses recently recognized its top-performing dealers of 2017 at the school bus OEM’s annual President’s Club awards gala.

Thomas Built’s 2017 Dealer of the Year award went to New England Transit Sales Inc., which offers sales, parts, and vehicle service and is based in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts.

“Thomas Built Buses once again ended 2017 as the market leader in the industry, and much of that success is due to our dealers,” said Caley Edgerly, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses. “While all of our dealers provide exceptional customer service, support, and training to their customers, our President’s Club dealers truly went above and beyond. And to our Dealer of the Year, New England Transit, we offer special congratulations for a job well done.”

New England Transit Sales has been a Thomas Built Buses dealer for more than 20 years.

“This award means so much to us,” said George Logan, president and CEO of New England Transit Sales. “Our customers’ satisfaction is our number one goal, but being named Dealer of the Year for Thomas Built Buses is definitely a highlight for our company.”

Thomas Built gives President’s Club and President’s Club Platinum awards to top dealers in recognition of achieving key performance indicators. A dealer must reach the President’s Club Platinum level to qualify as the Dealer of the Year for its region.
