For this special occasion Newport Coachworks organized guided tours to show the manufacturing process of its high quality buses. Visitors had the opportunity to discover the Fiberglass assembly and Tooling development, the Frame and Metal Assembly, the Preparation and Paint process, the Final Assembly, the Upholstery and Internal "fit-out" as well as the Fiberglass Fabrication with its new infusion process. In addition visitors could let themselves be inspired by the elegance and comfort of the new Atlas range by taking a test ride.
Not only are the new bus designs beautiful to see both inside and out, but in addition, the manufacturing techniques employed reduce weight, improve comfort and provide greater reliability. The processes are also cleaner, using low solvent or waterborne paints, and just 22% resin content versus the more normal 60% in Fiberglass production.
GAC shareholder D. Stevens stated: "We are amazed what the new management and their teams have been able to achieve over the past few months: from nothing 6 months ago, we are standing in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility; right next to me the highest quality shuttle buses are produced with the latest manufacturing technology available and these are all already sold to the market. And the first all electric shuttle bus is already under development!"
GAC shareholder S. Wells said: "It is very encouraging to see that these buses are made of over 90% of American components - this is great for our economy. We are proud to be one of GAC's shareholders and to be part of this exciting development."
