“Reflecting on our 29-year journey with the Greteman family and Windstar, the foundation of our partnership has clearly been built on shared values and a commitment to excellence,” remarked Roman Cornell, chief executive officer of ABC Companies. “Our heritage as a family-owned business has allowed us to establish a relationship based on trust and cooperative effort, ensuring that we consistently provide Windstar with what we consider to be industry leading vehicles and services. Witnessing the Greteman family’s incredible transformation from modest beginnings to evolving into a premier motorcoach transportation provider, spanning a total of twelve locations, is truly inspiring. Their steadfast dedication to core values of dedication, reliability, integrity, and more has driven Windstar Lines’ sustained success and growth through the years.”

Windstar emphasized the pivotal role of their partnership with ABC Companies in elevating their travel service standards, attributing to the longstanding bond with the Cornell family. “Our ability to continually improve our offerings and ensure a modern, safe, and comfortable travel experience for our passengers stems from our deep-rooted relationship with ABC Companies, supported by the trust and understanding we share with the Cornell family,” explained Jeff Greteman, president of Windstar Lines. He highlighted the decision to partner with ABC was based on a shared vision for customer service. “ABC Companies’ exceptional parts availability, outstanding service, and unwavering commitment to after-sales support have played a significant role in maintaining the high level of service and product quality that Windstar Lines prides itself on. Their dedication to excellence not only supports our operation needs but also aligns perfectly with our mission which is to lead the way, by providing unrivaled safety and service, while maintaining operational simplicity.
