Company History

Matthews Specialty Vehicles comes from a legacy of greatness! Founded by Robert E. and Justine Matthews, Matthews Buses, Inc. began nearly 50 years ago as a qualified distributor for the Thomas Built Bus family in upstate New York. Robert built the Matthews brand through the demonstrated durability, reliability and safety that went into every Thomas Built Bus. He would even personally fly customers to the factory so that they could see for themselves the Thomas Built Bus difference. Robert’s tenacity, strong character and good natured way built the foundation of this great 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 Brad Matthews, son of our founders Robert E. and Justine Matthews, is the owner andPresident. Under his direction 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. Our dedicated team is equipped only with state-of-the-art technologies for the most durable, reliable and toughest specialty vehicle on the market!

Our continued success comes from our simple core value, handed down from Robert Matthews, and infused in all that we do at Matthews. Any Job Big or Small, Do it Right, or Not at All! That’s a value you can depend on. At Matthews we know that customer satisfaction comes from planning ahead, making promises and delivering on promises made, exceeding expectations, and then consistently delivering reliable, predictable service!
