Tulsa bus plant wins US Army contract

Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ An Illinois bus manufacturer with operations in Oklahoma has won a $28.5 million U.S. Army contract to build buses for the Iraqi government, a congressman said Tuesday.

IC Corp., a unit of Warrenville, Illinois-based International Truck and Engine, will build the 304 buses at its Tulsa plant, U.S. Rep. John Sullivan, R-Okla., announced.

The company employs 900 workers at its plant near the Tulsa International Airport.

"This contract is a $28.5 million injection to improve the health of Tulsa,'' Sullivan said. ``I am proud that Oklahoman workers will play a roll in establishing a free and stable Iraq, while fueling our own economy.''

The U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command granted IC the contract, which will furnish buses for the Iraqi Ministry Civilian Vehicle Support, Sullivan said.
