SASKATOON, Saskatchewan — Trans Tech recently presented its inaugural Distinguished Dealer Award to Western Canada Bus of Edmonton, Alberta.

Trans Tech’s 2015 Distinguished Dealer Award is based on dealer achievement in several key areas, including dedication to supporting their customers, commitment to the Trans Tech product, sales, and customer satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to present Western Canada Bus with Trans Tech’s inaugural Distinguished Dealer Award,” said Trans Tech President John Phraner.  “Western Canada Bus has been instrumental in providing incredible service and attention to our Trans Tech customers in Canada. We truly value our partnership and appreciate all they do to help make Trans Tech a leading provider of Type A school buses north of the border.”

“We are delighted to receive Trans Tech’s Distinguished Dealer Award. It is a true honor for our entire team,” said Western Canada Bus Sales General Manager Doug DeHoop. “We establish partnerships with our customers and I think that is what distinguishes us from the competition and helps us stand out in the market place. Our team goes above and beyond to support our customers, and it means a lot to have that effort recognized by one of North America’s leading bus manufacturers.”

Founded in 2007, Western Canada Bus is now the largest commercial and school bus dealer in western Canada, according to Trans Tech.

Trans Tech Sales Manager Erickson Lopez presented the 2015 Dealer Award to DeHoop during the 14th Annual Student Transportation Association of Saskatchewan Conference and Trade Show, held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, from March 30 to April 1.
