About Us Commitment, passion and heritage. Because every mile matters.
We build peace of mind into every thomas bus.
Thomas Built constantly thinks of its customers, drivers and riders while building driver and maintenance-friendliness, safety and comfort into every bus. Continuous improvement and dedication to building the most reliable and safest vehicles are part of our culture. It's what has made Thomas Built one of North America's leading bus manufacturers. And it's why one in three school buses on the road today is a Thomas Built bus.
We are a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America LLC, a Daimler company and the largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer in North America. That gives Thomas Built the backing and resources to continually research innovative solutions and respond to the needs of our customers. The resulting full line of driver-friendly school, activity, commercial, and specialty buses, are manufactured and produced in High Point, North Carolina, and are sold through independently owned dealerships throughout North America. All of our dealers, along with the entire Thomas Built team, place a high priority on maintaining a spirit of customer care. It's a core belief that Perley A. Thomas Car Works established back in 1916, and one that will never change. Because, with a bus full of children and miles to travel, it really does matter.
