Anniston Star: Anniston bus maker breaks ground on $25 million expansion
An Anniston bus manufacturer unveiled a $25 million expansion project Friday set to result in about 40 new jobs and possibly lead to hundreds of more hires in coming years.
Canada-based New Flyer, North America’s largest transit bus maker, held a groundbreaking ceremony at its Anniston facility for the 76,000-square-foot expansion and renovation project already underway. The two-fold project includes expanding the facility’s welding department and opening a center to develop modern driverless and electric bus technology. Meanwhile, the New Flyer project continues a trend of state job growth generated far more by existing industry expansions than by the opening of new companies, some economic development experts say.
