Faribault, Minn. — ABC Companies, exclusive distributor of Van Hool vehicles in North America and a provider of motorcoach sales, service and technical support announced that it will consolidate its service operations and close the Camden, N.J., facility in March, 2020. The closure is part of the company’s future growth plans to realign and expand its presence in closer proximity to the New York Metro area market.
“The difficult decision to consolidate operations in Camden has been the result of a thorough assessment of our business operations. We are committed to supporting our staff through this transition,” said ABC President & COO Roman Cornell. “We are grateful for the dedication and hard work our employees have contributed over many years.”
The Camden site offers a full range of fleet maintenance and repair services including body shop, mechanical, and technical services. Over the next year, ABC will begin to consolidate operations in Camden as they complete a multi-million renovation at its Jersey City location. Encompassing five acres, the expanded site will double the size of existing operations to include equipment sales, service, and body shop services, and a new 20,000 square foot parts warehouse and sales counter. A full inventory of new and preowned motorcoach models will be available on site for inspection, test drives, and sale, including new ABC Express Van Hool models for fast customer delivery.
“We have been a proud member of the Camden community for the past four decades,” said Senior Vice President/Eastern Region Mike Laffan. “While we reposition our business to meet and exceed the expanding needs of our customer base, we’ll continue to focus on providing high-quality service both during and after the transition.”
