“I've loved coaches as long as I can remember and drove my first bus at 12 years old. I grew up singing and traveling all over America with my family riding in motorcoaches,” says Ron Wills, CEO of Euless, Texas, based Roadrunner Companies. And now Wills has eight more to love.
The eight new Van Hool CX45's are equipped with Allison (Gen4) B500 Six-Speed Automatic transmissions, wood grain flooring, Alcoa DuraBright Aluminum wheels and Van Hool’s exclusive contoured parcel racks, including REI Elite Video Systems with 22” video monitors. Roadrunner (www.roadrunnercompanies.com) serves the Dallas/Ft Worth market with 88 buses, offering charters to destinations throughout the US and Canada. Beginning with a single small bus in 2001, Wills' passion has expanded the company into one of the largest and most modern carriers in the region.
“We and our customers like Van Hool coaches a lot, but the thing that has us sold is ABC’s support. Zane Gray and everyone at their Grand Prairie location go out of their way to take care of us, making it easy for all of us at Roadrunner to concentrate on our main task – which is serving our clients. This makes 15 2015 motorcoaches we have purchased this year from ABC Companies - Van Hool's exclusive North American Distributor. We’re proud of our equipment but Roadrunner’s greatest strength is its staff,” Wills pointed out. “We’ve been careful to grow only as fast as we can find excellent people. Great customer service is more than just shiny coaches, and our folks work hard at making sure our customers have a great time, every time.”
“Ron Wills and the Roadrunner family continue to be market leaders in our industry,” says ABC Account Manager, Zane Gray. “They're long term thinkers and have been extremely successful in managing their acquisitions and growth. All of us at ABC are extremely grateful for their loyalty and our strategic partnership.
