Prevost Adds Four New Service Centers in North America

Thu Oct 12, 2017

ATLANTA – Prevost, a manufacturer of intercity touring coaches and a world leader in production of conversion coaches for high-end motorhome and specialty conversion, is growing again with the addition of new service centers in Montreal, the Chicago area and Calgary, Alberta.

The new locations bring the total of Prevost owned and operated service centers to 14, nearly double the size of the largest competitor network. In addition, the service network is supported by more than 150 certified Volvo Truck locations.

The new service centers, which all opened for business on Sept. 1, are full-service facilities and staffed by technicians who are factory trained to work on Prevost, Nova Bus and Volvo motorcoaches. The centers also service other motorcoach brands.

"The recent opening of our service centers in Calgary, Chicago and Montreal reflects Prevost's ongoing commitment to our customers," Prevost Serices Network Director Randy Castillo says. “With 14 total service centers in locations across the United States and Canada, there's no doubt that Prevost offers the most comprehensive service coverage of the North American market."

Prevost also recently opened a facility in the San Francisco Bay area of California. The service center, which opened on Aug. 1 and has been fully utilized ever since, allows the company to better serve the most populated state in the United States, Castillo says.

In addition to its service centers, Prevost operates a fleet of 55 vans to provide mobile service by factory-trained technicians when and where customers need it.

"With our ever-growing fleet of mobile vans and new locations, we are giving our customers more options and making our services more accessible," Castillo says. “Our commitment as a company is to continue to grow in ways that best meet our customers' needs."
