Creative Bus Sales announced it will expand into Elkhart County, Ind., with a 30,000-square-foot facility that will initially be used to perform alternative fuel conversions on buses, trucks and vans.
The process will take gas-powered vehicles and convert them to run on clean burning propane and compressed natural gas (CNG). The operation will be conducted under the name Green Alternative Systems (GAS). The focus of the business will be to provide conversions to OEM bus manufacturers and dealers across the country.
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.
