Celebrating 100 Years

​We are very excited to be celebrating 100 years of the Thomas Built Buses history with them as the oldest active Thomas Dealer. Kerlin Bus Sales has been serving the school bus market for 54 years. As we strive to be the best partner in transportation for you we have some exciting announcements.

First, we have hired a new Account Representative that many of you may know, Kelly Moore. We are thrilled to have Kelly as part of our team. More about him later in the newsletter.

Second, Thomas has many exciting engine options coming down the line. A Saf-T-Liner C2 with the Cummins CNG engine. Detroit will be bringing a medium duty fuel efficient diesel engine to the market with the success of its heavy duty counterpart today. We believe this could be a great option for some schools. And don’t forget, Thomas offers a Propane engine from PI paired with the ever reliable Allison transmission for a very robust medium duty offering.

Once again, Happy Birthday Thomas Built Buses. We hope the next 100 years are just as successful providing safe transportation for our children.
