NEWPORT BEACH, CA--Jauary 24, 2013: Green Automotive Company (OTC:GACR) today announced that its subsidiary, Newport Coachworks Inc., has received from Don Brown Bus Sales Inc. (donbrownbus.com), one of North America's leading bus distributors, a major increase to its original order. This supplementary order will result in Newport Coachworks increasing its production by 6 buses per month over the next 2 years.
This additional order is for a mix of Limousine-type buses and shuttle buses. Limousine-type buses are a very luxurious and a specialized version of the more traditional shuttle bus, providing all of the luxury expected in a typical stretch Limousine and operators with the ability to carry more passengers. Limousine-type buses have proven to be a huge success with Livery operators over the last 10 years, gradually replacing traditional stretch Limousines.
Confirming the additional order for Don Brown Bus Sale Inc., General Sales Manager AJ Thurber says, "With the shake up in the bus manufacturing industry, we're delighted to be working with Carter and his team at NCI. Having just seen his new premises and the commitment he has made to become a leading player in this industry we think he makes the perfect partner for DB bus sales."
Carter Read, President of Newport Coachworks, "With the progress we've made already on the first order for Don Brown, we're pleased that our hard work has been recognised with a second order. It's a credit to my team, their efforts and the support from GAC. I expect our relationship with Don Brown to develop further from here and I think they, and their customers, will be very excited at some of the new technology we will deploy in our builds. Technology that will lead to a longer life for the buses, greater pleasure for the passengers and higher levels of safety. Another good day for manufacturing in America!"
