Canyon State Bus Sales, a Blue Bird dealer in Arizona, opened a new 27,500-square-foot facility in Glendale, Ariz.

Canyon State Bus Sales says the move to Glendale was partially influenced by the rising interest in propane autogas-fueled buses. Last month, the company supplied the Kyrene School District in Tempe, Ariz., with 73 Blue Bird Vision propane-powered buses equipped with Roush CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems.

“This new location offers us efficiencies and growth opportunities to better serve our customers, particularly with the significant increase of propane buses that we’ve sold in the past three years,” says Phil Polizzatto, president of Canyon State Bus Sales, in a press release.

The bus dealer hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new facility April 20. According to Canyon State Bus Sales, the facility is about 60 percent larger than its previous headquarters in Phoenix, and it allows the company to increase its staff by 15 percent.
