NEWARK, Calif. --- ABC Companies, the exclusive North American distributor for Van Hool luxury motorcoaches, plan to open a service and parts facility during the second quarter in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Newark.

Located just 15 minutes from ABC’s Redwood operation, the 30,000-square-foot facility on three acres will serve employer shuttle operations, tour, charter, and commuter operators of all sizes and fleet profiles throughout the region. The Newark location at 7980 Enterprise Drive is on the East side of the San Francisco Bay and offers easy access to customers via Route 84 and Interstate 880. The facility will grow ABC’s parts and service presence to 12 locations throughout North America.

Among the facility's features: state-of-the-art diagnostics, maintenance, collision and repair and vehicle care with 14 service bays; two or three axle alignment/complete tire service and balancing equipment; full paint booth and body shop; a modern, comfortable driver’s lounge featuring WiFi, work areas, large screen TV, and a pool table; and 6,000 square feet of parts warehouse and retail counter area offering ABC’s parts inventory for counter pickup and shipping.
