Year Founded
1983

Family Owned
Marathon Coach, Inc. began operations in September 1983 converting new commercial bus shells into luxury recreational vehicles and corporate coaches. Retired Abbott Laboratories Chairman and CEO Robert A. Schoellhorn purchased his first Marathon/Prevost in 1990. He was so impressed with the quality of his motorcoach that he bought Marathon Coach, Inc. in 1992: It’s now the world’s largest and most experienced luxury bus conversion company. Robert’s son Steve joined Marathon Coach, Inc. in 1993 and was subsequently appointed Director of Corporate Coach Sales in 1994, Western Sales Manager in 1996, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing in 1997 and then President and COO of the company in 2006.
