IC Corporation Company Story
Nearly a hundred years ago, International manufactured
the world's first factory-built bus. Tomorrow morning
(assuming of course that it's a school day), more
children will ride to school on one of our products than
on any other bus brand in the world. International
engines are the industry standard. Our dealers are the
most helpful. Our buses enjoy the best record on the
road. It is no wonder that so many schools and
transportation companies have placed such trust in
International for so long. And why they'll continue to
do so with IC Corporation.
A school bus's job is to protect students while moving
them from home to school and back again. Our buses offer
a number of protective advantages. Sightlines are
panoramic, giving drivers a more commanding view of the
road. IC Corporation's innovative crossing arms, with
controls located behind the bumper, will keep working,
and keep protecting kids. An exceptionally wide entryway
gives the driver a clear view to the curb. Oh, and
there's the small matter that we've been safely carrying
kids, and drivers, for nearly a hundred years.
A new name and logo aren't going to sell buses if the
product doesn't live up to the promise. These buses do.
In fact, they are unlike any bus ever built. Conceived
of, designed and built entirely by IC Corporation, our
conventional, front-engine and rear-engine buses set new
standards in technology, reliability, convenience, and
comfort. This sort of bus doesn't happen by accident. We
talked to drivers, fleet supervisors, mechanics, and
students, and learned what they liked, disliked, and
hoped to see in the future. We then went to the drawing
board and thought, "Hmmm…" The result, we think you'll
agree, is the best-conceived, best-built bus that ever
rolled up to a curb.
Why do it all ourselves: build the whole bus, front to
back, top to bottom? Simple: We think we know more about
making school buses than any other company in the world.
More about design, more about manufacturing, more about
passenger protection, powerplants, ergonomics. That
being the case, why would we farm out a major aspect of
design or production to another company? We want every
part of an IC Corporation bus to represent our very best
knowledge, our very best technology. We also want it
delivered through the best dealer. IC Corporation's
dealer network offers a complete customer solution,
expanding the integrated concept beyond production to
encompass parts, training and service. Simply put, by
integrating every phase of production, distribution, and
service, we can bring you a better, stronger bus, at the
best possible value. You-and the children you
serve-deserve nothing less.
