Van Hool To Streamline Manufacturing Capabilities

Van Hool recently announced it will discontinue motorcoach manufacturing operations at its Koningshooikt facility in Belgium, shifting those activities to its growing manufacturing capabilities at the company’s Macedonia facility.

“Essentially, Van Hool has made the decision to further streamline manufacturing capabilities to best serve its global market and customers. The U.S. and Canadian markets serviced by ABC Companies have been supplied from the Macedonia facility since 2014, and therefore, will not see a change,” ABC Companies CEO Roman Cornell stated in a letter to ABC and Van Hool customers. “Most importantly, you our customers, will continue to benefit from this consolidation of global production activities into the Macedonia facility. This decision will further enhance the quality, innovation, and reliability that has been the hallmark of the Van Hool brand for 75 years.”

Cornell added: “ABC Companies and the Cornell family fully support this decision and will be working closely with the leadership at Van Hool to ensure a seamless transition. While production for global markets will be shifting to the Macedonia facility, many key operations will remain at the Koningshooikt location. We are confident this restructuring will further enhance Van Hool’s capabilities and service to their global markets. We look forward to our continued partnership with Van Hool and a truly bright future.”
