On July 9, 2019 GK joined the Blue Bird Bus Company team in Fort Valley, Georgia alongside community and state leadership to celebrate the ribbon cutting ceremony of the new, 60,000 SQFT paint shop; proudly engineered and constructed by Gallagher-Kaiser.
The event marked a meaningful milestone for both Blue Bird and GK. Gallagher-Kaiser installed new, world-class technology; significantly elevating the operations of the established Georgia bus manufacturer. What previously took workers 14 minutes to paint a 40’ bus, can now be done in 4.
In addition to improving efficiency, the new paint shop makes substantial strides in improving their environmental footprint. Blue Bird is one of the first facilities in the world to utilize the new Kaiser Compact Eliminator (KCE); the most effective spray booth scrubber available today. The unrivaled, patent-pending system developed by Gallagher-Kaiser provides a unique opportunity to considerably reduce particulate emissions.
GK is proud to advance Blue Bird’s operations; providing them with a safe, historically efficient, state-of-the-art paint shop.
