Long Tradition of Transportation Excellence
While the company now known as Thomas Built Buses was formed in 1972, the company traces its roots back to 1916. That’s when a Canadian-born engineer named Perley A. Thomas founded a company in the small town of High Point, N.C. that renovated and modernized streetcars, the primary mode of public transportation at the time. As streetcars eventually evolved into buses during the 1930s, the Perley A. Thomas Car Works adapted with the times and began designing and manufacturing high-quality school buses. Thomas’s children and grandchildren carried on the tradition of excellence over the years.
Still based in High Point, Thomas Built Buses is now a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America LLC. The company operates several plants in the High Point area that continue to produce state-of-the-art buses and other transportation vehicles.
In addition to implementing the latest safety equipment and features, today’s Thomas Built Buses are designed and built to be environmentally friendly, as evidenced by the line of hybrid buses currently on the market. Whayne Supply is one of the more than 50 authorized Thomas Built Buses dealers located throughout North America.
