Thomas Built Buses Launches Platinum Support Dealer Certification Program


HIGH POINT, NC – March 10, 2015 – Thomas Built Buses announced today the launch of its new customer focused comprehensive service program, Platinum Support, and the certification of the first two Platinum Support dealerships.

Platinum Support is a collaborative effort between Thomas Built Buses and its dealers, focused on improving the customer experience.

Platinum Support provides rapid diagnosis, responsive turnaround and quality, consistent communication, robust parts availability and superb customer service; all provided by a highly-trained staff.
