CAPpings - US -Transportation -Thomas Built Buses Inc finds corrosion control answers for school bus fleet

Rust and corrosion can be costly for a bus fleet. It's important to protect vehicles against road debris, de-icing chemicals and excessive wear.  We are committed to helping our customers stretch their budget dollars while transporting children to school in the safest and most environmentally-friendly manner, Kelley Platt, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses, said. We recognize the need for our customers to be good stewards of their resources throughout the life of our buses, and that extends beyond the initial purchase price.

High Point-based Thomas Built Buses Inc. in the US announced Friday that it has introduced a new line of anti-corrosion treatment products for its Saf-T-Liner C2 bus, a move that reflects the company’s focus on helping customers reduce the cost of ownership and extend the life of a bus.

Each bus fleet faces specific conditions that can accelerate corrosion – from excessive road chemicals to gravel roads. That's why all of our FleetShield coatings are available à la carte. Choose only what you need. The corrosion treatment products include Tuffcoat, EdgeCover and UnderGuard and can be used to protect areas of buses that are most vulnerable to rust and corrosion.

Kelley, who became CEO of Thomas Built Buses in 2010, has focused part of her strategy on helping clients with after-market services and maintenance that extend the life of a school bus.

Thomas Built Buses, Inc., is a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America LLC, a Daimler company
