Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA – November 7, 2022: (TSX: NFI, OTC: NFYEF) NFI Group Inc. (“NFI” or “the Company”), a leading independent bus and coach manufacturer and a leader in electric mass mobility solutions, today announced that its annual United Way Workplace Campaign raised $381,868 – surpassing its goal by 13% and continuing NFI’s commitment to supporting the communities in which it operates.

To date, NFI has raised over $3.5 million for United Way agencies since 2009.

The campaign was again championed by employees across North America, with Director of Human Resources Michelle Whyard as Campaign Chair and teams participating from NFI subsidiaries New Flyer, MCI, Alexander Dennis, ARBOC, NFI Parts, Carfair Composites, and KMG, all raising funds through individual, team challenge, and virtual giving initiatives.

“Support for community is a key element of NFI’s identity, and a fundamental part of how we do business at NFI,” said Janice Harper, Executive Vice President, People and Culture, NFI. “This year, after two years of cancelled in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our teams across North America came together through a variety of interactive events, including the return of our annual bus pull. These events, combined with employee and company contributions, provided precious dollars that will support the United Way in its mission to create lasting change in communities.”
