Our Company

Made in Canada

with U.S. and globally sourced components

We are proudly founded in Canada, with sales and distribution infrastructure in the USA.  We may source some components globally, but we design, test, and manufacture our school bus products right here in North America.  Let’s take a look at what makes us different.

Our Secret Sauce

Our team is passionate about achieving Zero in the pupil transportation industry. This means zero stop arm violations, accidents, fatalities, and excuses. We build quality products designed to perform at the highest level, setting us apart from others who prioritize cost over quality. Our secret sauce is our passion for Zero, which drives everything we do.

We Worry About the Details

We spent over 3½ years designing and testing our Illuminated School Bus Sign and Fully Illuminated Stop Arm, focusing on every aspect of the environment and customer experience. Our engineers considered varying North American climates to ensure the highest quality for our kids on school buses. Through testing, we identified the best materials and processes to bring our products to life.

We Don’t Leave Anything to Chance

We perform all critical production processes in-house at our Canadian facility, including plastics, electronics, and lens printing. We thoroughly examine and test every product before it leaves our facility because if it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for our customers.

We Listen to Our Customers

When designing our products in 2017, we talked to mechanics, Transportation Directors, bus drivers, regulatory bodies, and others for feedback. We continue to monitor our products to ensure safety and a positive customer experience. If an issue arises, we take swift action to improve school bus transportation.
