Founded in 1979 and located in the heart of the Ozarks, DaBryan Coach Builders manufactures limousines that incorporate the tradition of craftsmanship for which the region is known. Our quarter-century commitment to “Exceeding the Standards” has resulted in a well-earned reputation for building limousines of the highest quality and backing them with service to match.
Our commitment to exceeding the standards is reflected not
only in our high repeat customer business, but also in recognition from Ford
Motor Company as one of the first companies to attain the status as a
Quality Vehicle Modifier (QVM). DaBryan was also one of the first companies
to earn General Motors’ designation as a Cadillac Master Coachbuilder (CMC).
DaBryan has twice been awarded the “Best Product Demonstration” award at the Las Vegas LCT national limousine show for producing the show’s most forward thinking, elegant vehicle.
DaBryan has always focused on product quality and customer service as key success factors and we recognize employee involvement as the most important single influence with respect to quality and service. In 1996, DaBryan implemented an employee ownership program to reward its employees based upon the success of the company. In 1999, DaBryan built a new state of the art production facility to further enhance its commitment to quality and service.
Another Executive Coach Builders notable, Dan Mitchell, now runs DaBryan Coach Builders. This 1979 spin-off from Executive Coach Builders by Gary Dabney and Rick Bryant aimed to deliver to clients quality and honesty, "the premises upon which the company was built and that continue to this day," Mitchell says. DaBryan is an industry leader in "custom and highquality interiors," he says. DaBryan recently moved to a new production facility in Springfield, which is geared toward higher efficiencies - but not necessarily volume, as DaBryan remains committed to flexibility and customization.
Mitchell joined Executive Coach Builders in 1986 as chief financial officer, a title that marks a notable distinction in the industry: his accounting background. The MBA and certified public accountant told LCT Magazine in 1998 that when he joined the industry, there was little corporate or financial organization. "This was an industry that lacked maturity early on... You did not see planning cycles or a real attention to detail." He became president of Executive Coach Builders before moving to DaBryan, which he successfully guided through the crisis of the early 1990s. Mitchell considers one of DaBryan's greatest achievements its employee-stockholder plan that now owns the coachbuilder.
