Atlanta APTA Expo

Oct 18th 2017


Every three years, the team at N/S Corporation takes a trip to attend the APTA Expo and showcase the new products and innovative technologies we’ve recently developed. This year the show took place in Atlanta. Next year the show will be in NS’s backyard, Anaheim. As a growing company, N/S Corporation wants to connect with other key players in the transit industry, develop long lasting relationships with industry design architects, and display our products. Learn more about our success at the APTA Expo here.



With a space over four times the size of our closest competitors, we can really take over the show. Our team has a depth of product to showcase that dwarfs other bus and train wash manufacturers’ displays, and allows end users to experience our product up close and personal without any additional marketing. Transit agencies and design engineers all have access to our newest systems! On display is over five decades of innovation. On display is the only true vertically integrated player in vehicle wash systems in the US.

What We Showcased


At this year’s APTA Expo, we highlighted our Smart Gate System — a pneumatically operated gate that opens and closes the inflow of air into a blower reducer’s impeller chamber. It reduces power consumption by up to 50% by eliminating the need to start and stop motors multiple times per hour. Since washing buses or other large vehicles can demand more starts and stops than a traditional system can handle, using our Smart Gate System minimizes motor damage to the wash system. Other benefits include:

  • Noise Reduction to Notably Lower Decibel Levels for a Safer Work Environment
  • Can Be Retrofitted for Any N/S Corporation Blower
  • Works Like a Small Compressor
  • Made of 75% Recycled Structural Aluminum
  • Has a Bolt On Design
  • Is Made in the USA!
