EXTON, Pa. — Fire suppression system supplier Fogmaker North America is welcoming Ken Hedgecock, formerly of school bus manufacturer Thomas Built Buses, to its sales team.

Hedgecock will join the company, which supplies self-contained water mist fire suppression systems for engine compartments, on Jan. 6 as national sales manager. In his role, Hedgecock will focus on safety and technology products that Fogmaker offers to the school bus industry, the supplier announced in a news release on Wednesday.

“We’re certainly excited to have Ken join the Fogmaker North American team,” said Kent Tyler, executive vice president of USSC Group. “Ken brings significant industry experience and intimate knowledge of school bus operations on a state and local level. I have no doubt he will be a key player in helping us continue to redefine fire suppression in the industry.”

“I’m excited and blessed to join a company that shares a passion for safe and effective transportation — and thrilled to continue to serve the students of North America in my new role,” Hedgecock said. “With school administrators constantly looking for products that can enhance safety, I look forward to educating them on the unique advantages our Fogmaker systems can provide their fleets.”

Hedgecock most recently served as vice president of sales, marketing, and service for Thomas Built Buses, and had worked for the manufacturer for more than 40 years, starting as an intern while in college, and eventually heading up sales and marketing. In addition to spearheading Thomas Built Buses’ sales and marketing projects, he was instrumental in bringing new vehicles and safety technologies to the school bus market.

    Wow, kind of makes you think he didn’t exactly leave Thomas on his own terms.
