ABC Companies and Windstar Lines have announced what they describe as a “significant achievement in their partnership,” with the largest number of motorcoaches delivered in a single day.

“An impressive lineup of 18 Van Hool CX45 buses were acquired and put into operation, representing a historic delivery milestone for Windstar and a momentous occasion for ABC Companies,” according to a press release. “This delivery brings the total to 186 new and used coaches acquired by Windstar from ABC Companies since 1995, underlining a shared commitment to excellence in transportation. This event not only marks a notable achievement, but also celebrates the deep-rooted relationship between the Cornell family of ABC Companies and the Greteman family of Windstar Lines.”

“Reflecting on our 29-year journey with the Greteman family and Windstar, the foundation of our partnership has clearly been built on shared values and a commitment to excellence,” Roman Cornell, chief executive officer of ABC Companies, said. “Our heritage as a family-owned business has allowed us to establish a relationship based on trust and cooperative effort, ensuring that we consistently provide Windstar with what we consider to be industry leading vehicles and services.

“Witnessing the Greteman family’s incredible transformation from modest beginnings to evolving into a premier motorcoach transportation provider, spanning a total of 12 locations, is truly inspiring. Their steadfast dedication to core values of dedication, reliability, integrity, and more has driven Windstar Lines’ sustained success and growth through the years.”

Windstar emphasized the pivotal role of their partnership with ABC Companies in elevating their travel service standards, attributing to the longstanding bond with the Cornell family.

“Our ability to continually improve our offerings and ensure a modern, safe, and comfortable travel experience for our passengers stems from our deep-rooted relationship with ABC Companies, supported by the trust and understanding we share with the Cornell family,” Jeff Greteman, president of Windstar Lines, said.

He highlighted the decision to partner with ABC was based on a shared vision for customer service.

“ABC Companies’ exceptional parts availability, outstanding service, and unwavering commitment to after-sales support have played a significant role in maintaining the high level of service and product quality that Windstar Lines prides itself on,” Greteman said. “Their dedication to excellence not only supports our operation needs but also aligns perfectly with our mission which is to lead the way, by providing unrivaled safety and service, while maintaining operational simplicity. We are grateful for our partnership, which ensures our fleet is always in top condition, allowing us to focus on what we do best – serving our customers.”
