With production plants in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, we’re well-placed to service leading bus and coach manufacturers Australia-wide with quality product solutions and on-time delivery.

Large panel production capabilities

Many of the large panels we produce for major coach and bus builders are made using a traditional hand-lay, open mould lamination technique.

Our open moulding process is commonly used for the production of large roof panels and side panels.

For customers between Hervey Bay, Toowoomba and Murwillumbah, we deliver our our large roof and side panels direct to your door using our own purpose-built 14m trailer. For those further afield, we can assist with arranging suitable transport.

Production techniques and processes

Our Northgate, Brisbane facility is 3000 m2 in size and it’s here where we we use use hand lay-up, open moulding techniques for a wide variety of composites products that only require a one sided gel coat finish such as bus roofs and sides.

Resin transfer moulding (RTM) and vacuum infusion manufacturing is based at the Sunshine Coast factory. These techniques provide high quality finishes with consistent part thickness.

This also enables double-sided gel coat finishes, ideal for the partition between the driver and passengers, and overhead locker and door assemblies, previously produced in plastic moulding.
