Merger Creates the Largest Privately Owned Motorcoach Operator in the Western States

Silverado Stages, Inc. and Silver State Coach, Inc. have entered into a merger agreement combining the two well established motorcoach companies, each with stellar reputations and staff, into one formidable company within the transportation industry.

Jim Galusha, Silverado CEO, said “We are extremely pleased that Tony Fiorini and his motorcoach company have agreed to join Silverado and help grow our combined operations in the western region of the United States. Our plans are to consolidate operations where possible, take advantage of best practices and efficiencies, and to extend Silverado’s proven operational model.”

“I’m excited about the opportunity and challenges ahead,” said Silver State President and Owner Tony Fiorini. “Silverado is an employee-owned company – the ESOP [Employee Stock Ownership Plan] is a great benefit and reward for our loyal employees. The combined companies provide breadth and depth in the California and Nevada markets, allowing us to better serve all of our clients.”
