Spanish manufacturer Masats announced the start of production of its manufacturing plant in Kennesaw, Ga.
With the start-up of this plant, Masats has achieved the goal of being an American manufacturer of doors, fulfilling the Buy America Act (BAA). The first doors for 2018 contracts have already begun to be shipped from Masats LLC’s Kennesaw plant to the respective clients.
As a first phase, Masats has prioritized the manufacture of BAA doors for transit buses, to be followed shortly by commuter vehicles doors, which will go in production in the second quarter of 2018 and shipments in late June.
Subsequently, Masats will broaden the range of products manufactured in the U.S. to supply doors for motorcoaches, minibuses, and other products.
Masats’ new plant will also host its North American Service Department from where the distribution of spare parts and the Field Service Network will be managed. That will progressively expand, prioritizing the areas of activity, for all the vehicles equipped with Masats doors.
Masats is a manufacturer of doors and accessibility systems for vehicles of public transportation, including transit buses, motorcoaches, minibuses, and railcars.
