Western Bus Sales, Inc. was incorporated in 1974, and is owned by four shareholders. Marlan and Barbara Rohlena, along with their two daughters Sarah Jones and Mollie Blagg are passionate owners under second generation leadership since 2008.
Marlan Rohlena began working for School Bus Services, a school bus contractor company in Gresham, Oregon, involved in the operations. He accepted the responsibility of the sales side of the business in the late 1970s. He was promoted to the position of President of the renamed company, Western Bus Sales. He and his wife, Barbara Rohlena, purchased the business in 1988, when there were only 4 employees. Since then, the operation has grown to over 40 full-time and part-time employees.
Western Bus Sales has been a Blue Bird dealer since 1972, and has since expanded to include the Micro Bird by Girardin line of school buses, and the Champion, Diamond Coach, Micro Bird by Girardin, and New England Wheels line of commercial buses and vans. Our sales area ranges from Oregon and Washington to Alaska.
We offer a complete line of factory parts and accessories for all makes and models of school buses and commercial buses and vans. We know that a bus down due to a delay in repairs costs our customers time and money. Leveraging an expansive inventory, we strive to maintain excellent relationships with our suppliers to improve pricing to our customers and allow for quick turnaround time.
WBS offers an expansive vehicle service team capable of providing not only pre-delivery and warranty work, but service a multitude of other vehicles as well, such as RVs, commercial trucks and vans, and fire trucks. We are certified and registered with multiple organizations:
Our service, repair, and parts offerings provide our customers with personal service unsurpassed in our industry. The high degree of ethics and dedication of our employees has helped make Western Bus Sales the leading bus sales company in the Pacific Northwest.
