Proven expertise in every aspect of the bus.

Front Module
The fascia area undergoes real style change to make the product stand out amidst the competition. We help realize the style statement by performing a feasibility analysis of the concept by ensuring we don’t lose the design intent relative to the engineering parameters.

Seating Systems
Our design center in the Italian automotive hub, Torino has helped us realize some of the most inspiring designs of seats for passenger vehicles. Talk to us about our experience in the design of metal frames, Carbon fibers, handling and setting mechanisms, and much more.
Rear Module
The load distribution challenge that comes from using different technologies makes the rear module design more interesting and critical. Our experience in the rear module encompasses the critical zones, access to the control room, engine doors, rear frame, glazing, and the packaging of lights.
Structure and Doors
Designing the structures right from the chassis and adding all its structural elements is what brings the bus to life.

​ ​Pillars, Tubes & Pipes, Brackets, Reinforcement, Wheel arches module, Frame module, Lateral face final buck, the trim mounting assembly has been our forte. Plan for the roof to address the safety, comfort, strength, and load distribution varies between bus to coach to inter-city to intra-city buses. We have experience in supporting some of the most complex roof designs and integrating them with the overall structure of the bus.
Electrical Distribution Systems
Buses are becoming intelligent and the wires are no longer just used to power lights and display units. They are the nerve centers that help collect huge information relative to performance, safety, and maintenance.

​Fleet owners have different customization needs depending on their geography and demographics. All these technological, economical, and environmental aspects lead to variants for the same platform which adds to the increasing complexity of the wire harnesses.
