Air date rescheduled for show on Thomas Built Buses

Posted on June 24, 2008

HIGH POINT, N.C. — John Ratzenberger’s profile of school bus manufacturer Thomas Built Buses will air June 28 at 12:30 p.m. EST on his Made in America television show.

Ratzenberger chose Thomas Built based on its economic impact in the community, its unique nature of business and its contribution to the culture as an American-made product.

In December, the host toured the facilities, interviewed employees who make the buses and participated in the manufacturing process.
