Hino Trucks has reached its 30-year milestone of doing in business in the United States. Founded in 1984 as a limited distributorship with responsibility for importing Class 4 through 7 cabover trucks, Hino has evolved into a U.S. company with a dealer network of more than 200 points, with assembly and manufacturing facilities in Williamstown, W.V., and Marion, Ark., with eight locations throughout the country.
Hino Trucks, a Toyota Group Company, assembles, sells, and services Class 5-7 commercial trucks in the United States.
"While we are proud of our many accomplishments, the legacy of Hino Trucks over its first 30 years is not defined by the numbers it has accumulated, but by the lives it has touched in its journey.” said Glenn Ellis, vice president marketing, product planning and dealer operations. "As we reflect on and celebrate 30 years of Hino Trucks in the U.S., we also celebrate the people that have woven our brand into the American fabric.”
The company has garnered more than a dozen industry awards for customer satisfaction and “Truck of the Year” three times in the past six years alone.
In 2012, Hino introduced its Class 5 cabover diesel-electric trucks, and in 2013, the 195h hybrid won the medium-duty (Class 3-7) category of American Truck Dealers' Commercial Truck of the Year.
“It is a great honor for me to celebrate this anniversary as the president of Hino Motors Sales U.S.A. While many things have changed since 1984, our goals have always remained the same – to create the most innovative, high quality products in our industry,” said Yoshinori Noguchi, president & CEO of Hino Trucks.
“In looking back at 30 years in the U.S. market, we have learned how to deal with success and challenges. We have adapted and will continue to do so to meet the needs of this demanding market.”
