The leading coach manufacturer, Prevost, is one of the newest providers of jobs in Winter Garden. On November 7, they opened their newest service center at 1300 Green Forest Court.
Local leaders and business partners gathered for the opening celebration. Prevost builds top-line intercity-touring coaches and conversion coaches used for high-end motorhomes and other special conversions.
Certainly, anyone driving around the tourist areas of town sees all the buses that service Disney and Universal. The bus traffic, proximity to the airport and temperate weather made Orange County’s a natural fit for Prevost to set up a service center.
To build the facility, Prevost spent over $6 million and added 50 jobs. Factory-trained technicians are the employees that will staff the service center.
These workers will be trained to work on Prevost and Nova buses and a variety of motorcoach brands. They will be doing engine repairs, accident repairs and warranty work.
Conversions are done by third-party partners, but they can still service those vehicles at the facility. Customers also can shop used coaches on the property and have new coaches delivered.
