Tulsa bus plant reaches milestone
A milestone is met at an airport based company that isn’t an aerospace business.
The facility on Tulsa airport land once manufactured B-24 bombers. For the past decade, the huge building has been used to make buses, mostly school buses. I-C Bus is now celebrating the 100-thousandth bus rolling off the assembly line. Plant Manager Greg Hutchison says Tulsa has been a good fit.
The first bus rolled off the line here in January 2001.
I-C Bus, a Navistar affiliate, employs about 12-hundred people in Tulsa. Most buses built here are for school districts, but I-C also builds buses for the military and some commercial enterprises.
