At Ventura, door systems are made for city buses that are built all over the world and also drive around. Between 140-180 doors are assembled daily. A door consists of two vertical tubes, two horizontal tubes, a piece of glass and a rubber around it. The assembly process is completely manual and consists of the following steps:

  1. Screw door frame
  2. Paste glass
  3. Mount rubber

At the moment, approximately 25 doors are assembled per day with 4 employees. Ventura wants to continuously improve at all times. For this reason, the glass is nowadays glued with sealant that contains a higher adhesion strength so that the drying time is minimized. However, this process depends on many variables.
