The new facility is the second completely dedicated alternative fuels vehicle conversion facility to be opened by Creative Bus Sales. When running at full capacity, this facility will be able to turn out hundreds of conversions each year, according to the company.

Occupancy has already begun and new employee hiring is underway. Elkhart local Joseph Craig has been selected to run the facility for Creative Bus Sales.
