ARCHDALE, N.C. — Thomas Built Buses Inc. is stepping up production and adding 50 jobs companywide, the company said Wednesday.
Kelley Platt, president and chief executive, said that Thomas Built Buses had exhausted its list of employees who had been recalled to work when production began ramping up again, and posted the new positions in January. Most of the jobs are for production workers.
“We are just in the process of hiring people now, but we have stopped taking applications,” Platt said at the company’s Saf-T-Liner C2 plant in Archdale.
Thomas Built, based in High Point, has about 1,300 employees.
Platt also said that the state plans to buy 1,251 school buses this year, of which 968 will be Thomas Built buses.
