  From School Bus Fleet:

Trans Tech Bus, Inc., New York's only school bus manufacturer and an electric school bus pioneer, recently finalized the buyout of shares owned by Bart Marksohn and members of the Marksohn family.

The ownership consolidation means that Trans Group owner John Corr and Trans Tech Bus President John Phraner become exclusive owners of Trans Tech.

"The Marksohn family is legendary within the school transportation industry; and they played an important role in helping Trans Tech become a well-known and trusted school bus brand," said Corr.
