At the IC Bus Tulsa Bus Manufacturing Plant, approximately 1,100 employees assemble, inspect and fine-tune our buses to ensure that we’re building quality products for the 15 million students who ride them to school each day.
Approximately 1,100 employees have the capacity to churn out 75 new IC Bus products each day for the 15 million school kids who ride them every day of the school week. As the first OEM to build the chassis, engine and body on an American school bus, our community understands the importance of its work. At the one-million-square-foot Tulsa Bus Manufacturing Plant, each of the vehicles is carefully assembled under one roof on our mile-long assembly line.
Our vehicles undergo rigorous tests to ensure top-quality performance and safety, because our standards are higher than those of any other assembly plant. Every bus is combed for leaks in a specialized water test booth, with water running for six minutes at a maximum of 24 psi. One unit from the production line is chosen for inspection each day from a customer’s point of view. Daily inspections are held, with the findings provided to our manufacturing division. Even our floor joint welds are pull-tested on every 12th bus to ensure their quality.
In this business there is no margin for error. At the Tulsa Bus Manufacturing Plant, every practice is put into place to ensure that our vehicles are error free before they leave the lot. Want more proof? You can take a tour of the plant, just by contacting your local dealer.
