History[edit] Until 1990, the company produced and repaired agricultural machinery.[1] Then privatization took place and the new company was registered on 6 December 1991. The manufacturer was established with business intent to focus on the design, production, sale and service of buses. The company management decided for the design of a 7.5 m long bus which would use both the body and chassis of own design and engine-gearbox assembly from prominent world manufacturers. The production of buses was introduced here by Jaroslav Trnka, the former director of Karosa
Karosa
Vysoké Mýto, and his team.[2] Design works were initiated at the end of 1992 and already at the end of 1993, first buses with Perkins motor and Voith gearbox were sold in 1994 to Kadaň. The company produced a wide range of different sizes of buses (8.5 m, 9.5 m, 10.5 m, 12 m, 13.5 m and 18 m long). Company SOR Libchavy
