Bad Boy Buggies Production Moves to Augusta Georgia
All Bad Boy Buggies Models Now Being Manufactured in World-Class Production Facility.
AUGUSTA, GA –-(Ammoland.com)- Production of Bad Boy Buggies has now moved to Augusta, Ga. All Bad Boy Buggies vehicles are now built at E-Z-GO’s world headquarters, a facility recognized repeatedly for its world-class operations and the high quality of the vehicles it produces. The former facility in Natchez, Miss. that produced Bad Boy Buggies has now closed.
The 650,000-square-foot Augusta plant houses four major manufacturing lines, as well as warehouses and shipping facilities for parts and accessories. An on-site logistics facility ships products across the United States and beyond, with easy access to major domestic rail hubs and international ports in Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga. and Jacksonville, Fla.
In addition to building Bad Boy Buggies vehicles, the Augusta facility also produces Cushman utility vehicles for the industrial and commercial markets, and E-Z-GO golf cars, utility vehicles and street-legal “low-speed vehicles” for consumers and golf facilities worldwide.
The plant was named one of Industry Week magazine’s top 10 plants in North America in 2009, and also received the Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence, often called “the Nobel Prize of manufacturing,” that same year. The facility is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified, meaning that it has world-class procedures for manufacturing and environmental protection.
“We are excited to begin producing Bad Boy Buggies in our facility,” said Ron Draper, Vice President, Integrated Supply Chain for E-Z-GO. “By combining the industry-leading Bad Boy Buggies product line with the manufacturing capabilities and quality controls of our plant, we will build vehicles that offer consumers the highest quality, most features, and best performance available anywhere.”
