Thomas Built Buses, Inc. is a bus manufacturer based in High Point, North Carolina, and a subsidiary of the German Daimler AG. Thomas produces school buses, activity buses (Multi-Function School Activity Buses), and commercial buses; both small and full-size. Thomas traces its roots to 1916, when it was incorporated as the Perley A. Thomas Car Works in High Point. The company specialized in the manufacture of electric streetcars; as buses superseded them in the middle of the 20th century, Thomas switched to bus production (primairly school buses). By the 1970s, Thomas Car Works had become one of the dominant school bus manufacturers in North America. In 1972, the company adapted to its current name, Thomas Built Buses.
