Hino Trucks recently celebrated its 50,000th truck at its assembly plant in Williamstown, West Virginia.
Local and state officials, assembly team members and executive management were on hand to commemorate the 2017 model 268A Class 6 – 7 truck.
“It’s gratifying for our sales team, our manufacturing team, and our production team to have reached this significant milestone in our company’s history,” Yoshinori Noguchi, chairman of Hino Trucks said.
“This production level is testament to our trucks longevity and to the commitment of our customers to support a quality product. The Hino brand has risen from humble beginnings in the U.S. to become the premier leader in the medium duty truck market. We have built a solid foundation on which we plan to build consistently and substantially with the help of an ever expanding portfolio of standard features.”
Hino reports that its award winning line-up of conventional trucks has garnered an industry reputation for providing the lowest cost of ownership in the medium duty class.
The production of its 50,000th truck caps a record growth period for Hino in which the company has seen a 30 percent increase in two years. Hino reports that the growth in sales is owed to a combination of improved vehicle offerings, including a fully connected vehicle platform that is standard across all Hino models.
