StarTrans Bus is a major builder of small to midsize shuttle buses for both the public and private transportation markets in the U.S. StarTrans Bus was purchased by Forest River on March 31, 2014, after a long and rich history with Supreme Industries, Inc.
After Supreme’s acquisition in March of 2014, StarTrans transferred machinery, inventory and equipment from their previous facility to a 100,000 square-foot plant in Goshen, Indiana.
The expansion of facilities in Goshen has given StarTrans an opportunity to provide additional capacity for future growth. StarTrans has also been able to leverage economies of scale created by sharing paint, PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) and chassis facilities with several of Forest River’s bus divisions.
Besides being under the umbrella of Berkshire Hathaway, one of the most respected and secure companies in the world, StarTrans’ strong dealer base, brand loyalty and Forest River’s manufacturing expertise has helped return StarTrans to the forefront of the shuttle bus market.
StarTrans’ commercial bus line now includes the Senator II, Senator II HD, Candidate II and Candidate II Transit as well as PS/2.
StarTrans Bus provides affordable transportation ranging from hotel, church and retirement center buses to medium size buses ideal for tour and shuttle bus operators and many other private transportation organizations.
