Prevost was founded in 1924 when cabinet-maker Eugene Prevost created his first wooden coach body in Sainte Claire, Quebec. Prevost was a master craftsman who insisted on the finest workmanship, and the company has been diligent in sustaining his legacy. Time does not change Eugene Prevost’s kind of thinking; he and Emerald CEO John Walker would have seen eye-to-eye, each one a perfectionist who would never settle for anything but the highest quality.
Today, Prevost is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volvo Bus Corporation, and a leading manufacturer of premium touring coaches and shells for high-end motorhome and specialty conversions.
Prevost has built a well-deserved reputation for high quality and exceptional durability. Its manufacturing processes and systems are stare-of-the-art, including micro-precision assembly. A jig for “zero-tolerance assembly” maintains perfect alignment and positioning while each piece of the stainless-steel structure is welded. This ensures that the vehicle has maximum resistance to stress and
deformation, and structural integrity that provides exceptional riding comfort and performance that stands the test of time.
Prevost’s meticulous attention to quality has earned the company’s manufacturing and after-sales operations the prestigious IS0 9001:2000 certification.
Concern for the environment has led to Prevost earning ISO 14001 certification (environmental protection) for its manufacturing processes. Prevost was the first North American motorcoach manufacturer to earn these certifications.
