New Flyer Industries Inc. (“New Flyer” or the “Company”), the leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses in Canada and the United States, amended its agreement with A. Girardin Inc. (“Girardin”) to include the New Flyer MiDi®, in addition to the Xcelsior® heavy-duty transit bus. Girardin will serve as the exclusive distributor of New Flyer’s MiDi® and Xcelsior® transit bus models for all public and private customers in Quebec and private operators in Ontario and the Atlantic provinces.

Under the terms of the agreement, Girardin will market, sell and provide after sales service for the MiDi® and Xcelsior® transit buses through its established service locations. All New Flyer products purchased through Girardin will be fully supported by New Flyer’s industry leading warranty, genuine New Flyer spare parts, and lifetime customer care programs.

The New Flyer MiDi® is a mid-sized, low-floor, ultra-clean diesel powered, quiet bus that is ideal for use in community shuttle/transportation, airport, university and hotel shuttle services. Available in 30’ and 35’ lengths, the streamlined design of the MiDi® provides greater maneuverability while maintaining excellent accessibility for passengers with one or two doors and a 1:6 slope wheelchair ramp. Substantially lighter than vehicles in its class, MiDi® was developed though a joint venture with the UK’s leading bus manufacturer Alexander Dennis, and leveraged on their proven E200 design with over 16,000 vehicles deployed worldwide.

New Flyer’s Xcelsior® is a proven heavy duty, low floor bus that is ideal for use in rigorous and demanding transit or shuttle duty cycles. Available in 35’, 40’ and 60’ articulated lengths, Xcelsior® is offered with clean diesel, compressed natural gas, diesel electric hybrid, and electric trolley propulsion systems.

“This agreement offers both companies the advantage of offering operators a product that has not been available to the market” states Paul Smith, New Flyer Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing. “Not only does it expand Girardin’s product offering to their customers, it allows for the successful penetration of New Flyer products into the market by a partner with great experience, a solid reputation, extensive market knowledge and a long list of customers.”

New Flyer and Girardin first entered into a distributor’s agreement in April 2011, to distribute the Xcelsior® heavy duty transit bus. The amended agreement has already generated success with three (3) recent bus awards. The first official MiDi® contract for a single 30-foot bus has been awarded by Autobus Robert Paquette, a transportation provider based out of Quebec, Canada. This single bus order is currently being manufactured and is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2014.

Keolis Canada, a passenger transport service provider in the Montreal area has awarded a contract to purchase five (5) Xcelsior® 40-foot heavy duty buses in addition to eight (8) 30-foot MiDi® buses. The five (5) Xcelsior® buses are anticipated to be delivered in the second quarter of 2014 and the eight (8) MiDi® buses are anticipated to be delivered in the third quarter of 2014. Additionally, Le Groupe Transbus has also awarded a contract for three (3) Xcelsior® heavy duty 40-foot clean diesel buses to be delivered in the third quarter of 2014.

“We’re excited and proud to partner with New Flyer on this dealer agreement to offer the Xcelsior® and MiDi®,” said Dave Girardin, A. Girardin Inc., President. “These industry leading New Flyer products complement our current product line by creating a more robust portfolio; adding to our lineup of school buses and light duty cutaway buses. New Flyer’s reputation and high level of quality of buses and aftermarket service and support makes this a winning decision to join into this partnership.”

The MiDi® and Xcelsior® models have been designed to deliver improved reliability and life-time value savings by offering; improved fuel economy and lower overall cost of ownership. New Flyer vehicles meet or exceed all applicable North American regulations, requisite testing including structural durability at Altoona, PA.

The New Flyer MiDi® and Xcelsior® bus models are available for sale by all Girardin’s Quebec and Ontario sales locations.
