Fontaine Modification Co. will open a new modification center in Williamstown, W.V., to support Hino Trucks' assembly plant in West Virginia
. The enhanced partnership will allow Hino Trucks to expand its product offerings to include additional paint options, bus chassis, RV chassis and fire rescue chassis packages.

"Having Fontaine as an extension of our assembly plant in West Virginia affords us the ability to offer many more options seamlessly to our dealers and customers," said Bob Petz, vice president of logistics operations for Hino Trucks.

The Williamstown modification center will continue to provide Hino Trucks with all current production options, including extended cab, 338 City Tractor, Dual Steer Sit-Down and Dual Steer Right Hand Stand-Up packages.

The new facility is located across the street from Hino's assembly plant, enabling the seamless integration of modifications into the truck production and delivery process. Fontaine plans to begin transitioning all Hino work from its Springfield, Ohio, center to Williamstown in November.
