Last November Newport Coachworks signed a distribution agreement with Don Brown Bus Sales, one of North America's leading bus distributors, to manufacture a range of buses over the next 2 years. To meet this demand, the company invested heavily in its new state of the art production facility based in Riverside, California.
Carter Read, President of NCI confirms: "We have invested in the most technically advanced machinery such as a 5 axis CNC machine and a full length spray booth and oven for painting even the longest buses, to make sure we meet the highest quality standards. The first bus that rolled off our production line, the Atlas 27, combines high rigidity with optimized weight and maximum durability thanks its innovative fiberglass body, fully composite floor and high strength light weight frame. A good day for manufacturing in America!"
Don Brown Bus Sales General Sales Manager AJ Thurber is delighted: "This is the first of a new generation of shuttle buses which we believe are set to take America by storm. Its elegant design will inspire passengers with an outstanding ride and comfort level. Mr. Read has proven the superiority of his technology that leads to a longer life for the buses, greater pleasure for the passengers and higher levels of safety. We are amazed at what Newport Coachworks has been able to achieve in such a short period of time."
