Matthews Specialty Vehicles comes from a legacy of greatness! Matthews Buses, Inc., began in 1967 as a qualified distributor for the Thomas Built Bus family in upstate New York. The Matthews brand was built through the demonstrated durability, reliability and safety that went into every Thomas Built Bus. Legend has it that our team would even fly customers to the factory so that they could see for themselves the Thomas Built Bus difference. Early tenacity, character, strong morals and ethics built the foundation of this company!
In partnership with Thomas Built Buses, Matthews delved into the custom conversion business in 1992. Matthews quickly grew a fine reputation for top quality, craftsmanship and reliability—so much so– Matthews became the exclusive manufacturer of custom specialty vehicles for Thomas Built Buses! After almost a decade of exclusive partnership, Matthews expanded by beginning to offer conversions on additional chassis platforms such as Freightliner, Ford, Mercedes and many more.
Today we have become a global premier specialty vehicle manufacturer. We are proudly headquartered in Greensboro, NC. The Matthews campus houses a cohesive team to design, engineer, manufacture, and provide parts as well as product support.
