Tolar Manufacturing Company seeks DBE contractors and suppliers for transit project in Dallas, Texas

DBE firms certified by the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (NCTRCA) under Buy America provisions outlined in 49 CFR Part 26 are invited to submit technical and commercial proposals for materials and services that may be required to manufacture bus shelters.

Tolar Manufacturing Company, North America’s leading fabricator of transit shelters and related amenities, is pursuing a response to Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s RFP that calls for the procurement and installation of Bus Stop Amenities over a three-year period.

Tolar Manufacturing is looking for installation contractors to bid on product assembly and installation at bus stop locations. The product installation consists of aluminum transit shelters with polycarbonate dome roofs, benches and 12-volt, low draw solar amenities. The shelters will be mounted to existing concrete pads, with adjustable leveling support shoes in addition to other installation tasks. The winning contractor will assemble, level, secure and bolt with expansion anchors, and install solar components. Also, the contractor will work within safety guidelines to perform inspections that meet both DART’s and Tolar Manufacturing’s insurance requirements.

Additionally, the potential supplier scope of work may include steel & aluminum tube and sheet material, aluminum extrusions, plastics, polycarbonate sheet, hardware, powder coat, safety supplies, freight transportation, material storage and other stipulated deliverables for the fabrication and installation of bus shelters. Potential suppliers must have proven manufacturing or manufacturing supply experience.

All suppliers’ manufacturing facilities must be certified or compliant with the Quality Program requirements as directed by ANSI/AQS Q9001, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, or demonstrate compliance with an equivalent program. All products must meet Buy America provisions under 49 CFR Part 661 and meet extremely high quality and reliability requirements.
