RALEIGH, N.C. — The Raleigh-Durham office of Harrison Global increased the size of its fleet by taking delivery in December of four new buses.

Bought from ABC Companies, Harrison added two new 2013 57-passenger Van Hool motorcoaches to its fleet. The VIP coaches are equipped with Direct TV satellite, Wi-Fi Internet connections, and power outlets at every seat.

Harrison also added two new 29-passenger minibuses. These buses are equipped with a restroom, Wi-Fi Internet connection, and three-point seat belts at every seat.

“Given the rapid growth of our business in this market and the need for the best quality equipment for our clients and prospects, it was an easy decision to invest,” North Carolina general manager Brad Jackson said in a statement. “We have already seen strong 2013 bookings for all four buses and expect them to be very busy.”

 “The Raleigh-Durham market is proving to be an important one for Harrison Global as part of our overall growth strategy,” Managing Partner Bill Gemmell said. “We have seen significant improvement and growth in Harrison’s position in the market to the point where it was an easy decision to further invest in our fleet and our operation there. We plan to continue our aggressive plans in the market with the highest quality equipment and staff.”

Harrison Global has more than 150 executive transportation vehicles in service and continues its business development and acquisition efforts across the eastern seaboard of the U.S. In addition to its Boston headquarters and its newly acquired New Hampshire locations, Harrison has operations in Raleigh/Durham, N.C. and in the DC/Virginia market. Harrison provides service in 450 cities worldwide, and remains poised in a growth phase.
