Temsa continues to expand new offerings and enhance current models, offering high quality products for the U.S. market. I see big potential for growth.”

Bantley will bring a breadth of new ideas and strategic management to this role, which will help build the Temsa and CH Brands throughout the northeast operator network. As account executive, he will participate in regional associations by attending annual meetings, will make customer courtesy visits, facilitate sales of new and pre-owned equipment and will work diligently with CH’s customer base to ensure superb support and service.

In other CH Bus Sales news, Bianco Tours of Taylor, Mich., has taken delivery of two Temsa TS 30 motorcoaches. Their charter travel fleet now includes three Temsa buses, including a 2017 TS 35E.

Bianco’s TS 30s are equipped with a Cummins ISB engine and Allison B300 transmission, in addition to favorite customer features such as 110V plugs with USB ports, REI audio/video, sun shades, woodgrain floor, rear window, and Alcoa aluminum wheels. In making the purchasing decision for the new vehicles, Bianco Tours owners Kent and Jill Bianco share that it was “the sharp turning radius, accessibility to mechanical components, and stability on the road” that helped turn their eyes to the TS 30. Now, they are able to offer their small group customers competitive rates without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a larger coach.

“The midsize Temsa offered a unique solution to a market needing smaller, over-the-road coaches that the cutaway models could not meet,” adds the Biancos.
