From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Twin Coach was a company formed by the Fageol brothers when they left the Fageol Motor Company in 1927. They established the company in Kent, Ohio, to manufacture and sell buses with a new concept design. The body structure of this new bus was unique in that the body also became the frame and two engines were used to allow for larger passenger loads. This concept was patented by William B. Fageol.

Over the years, Twin Coach made transit buses, trackless trolleys, small delivery vehicles, Fageol six-cylinder gasoline/propane bus and marine engines, Fageol four-cylinder Marine engines, and aircraft and truck components. The bus operations were sold to Flxible in the mid-1950s. A portion of the company called Highway Products produced a number of products such as: small Post Office vehicles, portable machine shops and bridge erection boats for the military. The name "Twin Coach" was changed to "Twin Industries" as the New York based aircraft division continued operations.

Highway Products as an "Alco" company produced a small bus which was sold under the "Twin Coach" name from 1969-1975.
