Thomas Built is owned by Daimler North America, which also owns Freightliner and Western Star, along with Detroit Diesel. Thomas Built Buses share a lot of parts with Freightliner trucks and some do use Freightliner chassis, though I'm not sure if all do. Many parts can be looked up via the Daimler parts system. More specific parts can also be ordered through any Thomas dealer, which has their own parts lookup system. I've watched my local dealer look up parts for my buses under both systems.
You may want to consider Midwest Bus Sales in Litchfield, Il and Nelson's Bus Service in Whitewater, WI as both come up as Thomas dealers per Thomas's website.
