Gobind Motors Bhadaur – 10 Years Warranty on Bus Bodies

Gobind Motors Bhadaur seater buses for Kareng Travels Assam

Bhaduar, a small city in the Barnala district of Punjab has earned its place on the global map as a top-tier bus body building destination. Home to some of the biggest coachbuilding companies of India, Bhadaur has a rich and time-honored tradition of bus bodybuilding.

Yet, Gobind Motors aims to re-invent the wheel and change the way Bhaduar builds buses.

Launched in 2019, Gobind Motors may be a new company but the brains behind the company are veterans of the trade.

In fact, Founder & Director Sardar Darshan Singh is the very man who shaped the entire bus bodybuilding heritage of Bhadaur back in the 1980s.

A Udyog Ratna awardee, Singh has also been part of the most prodigious companies of the region in varying capacities over the years.

A People-First Approach

Gobind Motors is backed by the biggest infrastructural set-up of all bodybuilders in Bhadaur.

Sprawling across an area of 2 acres, the entire area is meretriciously segregated into different departments like the Manufacturing Plant, Research & Development, Shower Testing Area, etc.

While the company is armed with the latest in machines and technology, it is its people-first approach that sets it apart from the others. 

“We follow a people-first approach here at Gobind Motors – both with our employees as well as our clients. Our employees are the backbone of this company, our greatest assets. Hence, we go the extra mile to keep them happy all of the time. Our workers are more energized, more engaged, more creative, they solve problems more effectively and collaborate better. And this has had a tremendous impact on our output,” adds Singh.

All of them take it as their individual responsibility to ensure that the end product is extremely high in terms of aesthetics and quality. And this has helped us tremendously in ensuring customer satisfaction,” states Gurnaib Singh. 

The company follows a very similar format with its clients as well. “We treat our clients very friendly. The reason behind it is to give them a sense of comfort so that they can come to us when they need it. 

They tell us all their requirements and our experts ensure that all of them are implemented exactly as per their requirements. We also encourage them to share their honest feedback so that we can continue to elevate our products and services,” he adds.

Quality at the Fore

Gobind Motors takes extreme pride in the strength of the bus bodies that they manufacture. So much so that the company offers a 10-year warranty on all buses that they produce. 

According to Gurnaib Singh, the core practices that set them apart from their peers and have given them the confidence to offer a 10-year warranty are as follows:

Gobind Motor’s Unique Bus Body Structures

Unlike normal welded structures, Gobind Motors offers bus body structures with jig fixtures.

“As prescribed by all OEMs, we bolt our structures to the chassis, instead of welding them. This has many advantages – the chief being that even in case of a collision, there is no impact on the chassis. Moreover, the lower center of gravity and more rigid frame also make them much less prone to a vehicle rollover,” he adds. 

The company banks only on MIG Welding to make structures. This helps them achieve high-quality welds much faster. Since flux is not used in MIG Welding, there is no chance for the entrapment of slag in the welded metal, resulting in high-quality welds.

“We also utilize anti-corrosion dip painting for structure pipes so that there are no chances of corrosion. This is especially important for clients from south India where the salty air & humidity accelerate corrosion of the inner body,” reveals Gurnaib Singh.

Super High-Quality Bus Body Materials

Gobind Motors also ensures that only the best materials are used in fabricating their bus bodies. While structure pipes are procured from trusted brands like Tata and Surya.

The company only uses Tata GPSP Sheets for side paneling which can withstand tough weather conditions and are waterproof. These sheets are reckoned for their corrosion resistance, sturdy construction, and high durability. 

“In non-ac buses, we use a light green tinted glass that is the latest in the market and no one else uses. Besides, we rely on ALP EPMD Flock Channels and Hindalco Aluminum sections. In total, the quality of materials is never compromised to ensure that bodies we produce are strong enough for Indian roads,” adds Singh. 

All interiors feature in-house built, fire-resistant Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) composites that offer superior resistance to corrosion and abuse but require little to no maintenance. The company also relies only on water, weather, and fire-resistant wires and sleeves for all electrical works. 

Solid Shower Testing for Bus Body 

At Gobind Motors, buses are sent to the Water Proofing Test Facility twice to double-check for leakages.

“A lot of our clients are from rain-intensive regions like North-East, Konkan Belt and South India, etc. So to ensure that they face no problems, we shower test our buses twice – once before the paint job begins and then before PDI. All in all, we want to leave no rooms for complaints,” asserts Gurnaib Singh. 

Bus Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

The company also offers a 25 kms PDI to ensure that the buses are ready for the road and safe to drive before handing it over to the customer.

Gobind Motors Future Plan

Although it’s just been slightly more than a year, Gobind Motors has registered an overwhelming response from its consumers.

Gurnaib Singh attributes this to their sheer dedication to quality and meeting customer requirements. Going ahead, the company aims to invest more in R&D and bank more on modern technology to bring about a revolution in the Indian bus body industry. 

“Times are changing fast and so are passengers. As technology becomes affordable by the day, passengers are growing aware and their demands are increasing consistently.

This has ensured very stiff competition for fleet owners, who are our clients. We understand this and help fleet owners with building modern-day buses that feature the latest in amenities and features so that their buses can stand apart from the crowd,” concludes Gurnaib Singh.
