The facility closure is part of the company's future growth plans to realign and expand its presence in closer proximity to the New York Metro area market.

"The difficult decision to consolidate operations in Camden has been the result of a thorough assessment of our business operations. We are committed to supporting our staff through this transition", said Roman Cornell, President and Chief Commercial Officer - ABC Companies. "We are grateful for the dedication and hard work our employees have contributed over many years".

  Massachusetts Driver Safely Evacuates Students After School Bus Fire

   From School Bus Fleet:


BELLINGHAM, Mass. - A school bus driver here is being credited for safely evacuating students from his school bus on Wednesday after the bus caught fire, police said.

The bus driver was transporting five students from Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, at about 3:15 p.m., according to WPRI. He was driving down North Main St. in Bellingham when he felt the floor getting hot, and pulled over to take a look at the bus, which is owned by Valley Transportation Corp., Boston 25 News reports. Captain Joseph Robidoux of the Bellingham Fire Department told Boston 25 News that the driver reported that "that's when he must have noticed the fire in the engine area." He was able to get all the students off the bus before it became consumed by flames.

Robidoux told WPRI that it appears that a mechanical problem caused the fire.

Bellingham Police Department Sgt. Lee Rolls told Boston 25 News that the driver "may have saved lives" by pulling over when he did. The bus driver, who was "shaken up" and "asking about the kids," police told the news source, is being called a hero by police for his quick thinking. Police also told Boston 25 News that the fire was "so intense" that it melted students' backpacks.
