Thomas Built Buses Awarded Sourcewell Contract to Simplify Bidding Process

HIGH POINT, N.C. — Thomas Built Buses has been awarded a competitively solicited contract by Sourcewell to offer educational, governmental or nonprofit organizations new school buses. Thomas Built was awarded the Sourcewell contract following a rigorous request for proposal process resulting in contracts that meet, or exceed, local procurement requirements.

“The bidding process for school buses can be an incredibly challenging process,” said Jed Routh, vice president of sales, service and marketing at Thomas Built Buses. “By earning an awarded contract with Sourcewell, we hope to streamline that process for many districts – thereby saving them time and money along the way. We are thrilled to serve Sourcewell clients, and we look forward to this relationship having a positive impact on our customers.”
