March 25, 2016 - Leonard Bus Sales Wins Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year Award for Third Straight Year
Warwick, N.Y. – Trans Tech announced today that they have awarded their 2015 Dealer of the Year Award to Leonard Bus Sales of Deposit, New York. This is the third straight year the family-owned school and commercial bus dealer has received the award. Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year Award is based on exceptional dealer performance in several key areas including dedication to customer support, overall sales and growth in market share.
“It is an honor to present Leonard Bus Sales with Trans Tech’s Dealer of the Year for the third straight year,” said Trans Tech President, John Phraner. “Leonard Bus Sales’ commitment to providing industry-leading sales and support, tireless efforts to grow their Type-A school bus market share in New York, and their continued investment in the success of their customers, made them the clear choice.”
Trans Tech continues to expand its market across the country by growing its dealer network and bringing customer-inspired innovation to its industry-leading Type-A school buses. Phraner said that although Leonard Bus Sales was the clear choice to win the 2015 dealer of the year award, this year was a much tougher decision given the increase in the size of the dealer network and the number of dealers that have done a great job in expanding their respective markets.
“Receiving Trans Tech’s prestigious Dealer of the Year Award for a third straight year is a tremendous accomplishment for our entire company,” said Leonard Bus Sales Vice President Jon Leonard. “There are a lot of great Trans Tech dealers across the country, so winning this award is truly a testament to our talented team and our commitment to provide unmatched customer support to our school transportation partners.”

The company operates a Trans Tech-only facility in Garden City Park, NY and four full-service facilities across Upstate New York State in Saratoga Springs, Rome, Bergen, and Deposit – their corporate headquarters.
