various fabricated parts are then integrated with the automotive components during final assembly. All Buffalo production, with the exception of capsule formation, is conducted at the Ladson facility (Walsh, 2008a, August 6).

Cougar production is very similar except the process starts with direct OEM components such as Caterpillar engines and Allison transmissions rather than a chassis cab from a major truck manufacturer. Cougar production is spread between multiple facilities and among the FPII operating partners such as GDLS in Lima, OH, and Anniston, AL, as well as Spartan Motors in Charlotte, MI (2008a, August 6). A key characteristic of the FPII manufacturing process is the high percentage of fabrication work done in-house. This explains the relatively large workforce and lower production capacity as compared to IMG. The basic FPII production process is shown in Figure 18.
