In 1981, Bus Industries of America Inc., known locally as Orion Bus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ontario Bus Industries, was incorporated in Oriskany, New York. Since then, the name has changed but the operation and commitment to quality and service has remained the same. Today, under the direction of Dr. Andreas Strecker, President and CEO, Daimler Buses is a leading commercial bus company in North America and has ramped up production in Oriskany to fill the growing demand of its Orion VII transit buses.

At the 139,000 square-foot facility in Oriskany, the bus structures are completed with the addition of seating, axels, transmissions, electrical heating and air conditioning systems and other finish components. It also is home to the administrative offices for its Parts division and houses the engineering department for the Orion brand.

With an already successful record in North America, Daimler Buses North America is excited about the future of buses and motorcoaches. Building off of a successful 2007, Daimler Buses reported increased revenue to $566 million (USD) in 2008. Daimler Bus has approximately 1,259 employees some 614 of whom work in Oriskany.
