Justin Headshot

“I started with Blue Bird as a Manufacturing Engineer on the conventional school bus chassis line and worked my way up to leading the Manufacturing Engineering and Training team. My main motivation is to provide the tools and knowledge to those associates who build our bus every day so that we can continue to build the best bus in the world. I’ve found that if I treat every person at this company with equality and respect, while taking in all ideas, the end product of whatever I’m working on will be that much better. I’m truly lucky that I enjoy my job because not everyone can say that.”

“I absolutely LOVE my job and find it very rewarding to work for a company that is on the forefront of new technology and an industry leader when it comes to alternative fueled school buses. Every day, I am helping school districts save money and understand the benefits and advantages of cleaner, more efficient school buses. When a district decides to buy a Blue Bird Alternative Fueled bus, my heart is full knowing that the district is changing so many people’s lives in their community.”
