Bus builder Van Hool is going to plant a factory in Tennessee, starting in mid-2018, the company announced in foreign press outlets this week.

With that, it wants to get a foot on the American market of public transport. Van Hool is already active in the U.S. private transportation sector, where it has a 35% market share through its American distributor ABC Companies in Winter Garden, Fla.

The company headquartered in Koningshooikt (Lier), Belgium, said it wants to build in a rural area in the Knoxville, Tenn. region. "Construction will start in the second half of 2018. From 2020 we want to produce 400 buses per year with about 500 employees. In time, we think the factory will have about a thousand employees," said CEO Filip Van Hool.
