For Hino, year over year growth that continues to eclipse the market has meant one thing: expansion. As we continue to build America’s premier medium duty truck brand we’re also growing our team and our infrastructure. Our current nationwide corporate footprint now spans five states with 9 facilities and over 1,000 people. We’re very proud of our growing business and dealer network in the United States and look forward to even more expansion in the future. Our latest announcements are detailed below.
NEW TRUCK ASSEMBLY PLANT IN WEST VIRGINIA
Davey Jung, Executive Vice President, Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A. Inc. answers questions for the media at our press conference in West Virginia.
On September 27 2017, we announced our plans to purchase the former Cold Water Creek distribution center and convert it into a new truck assembly plant in Mineral Wells, West Virginia, close to our current plant. The new plant, planned to be operational in early 2019, will also house cab assembly, an operation currently conducted in Japan. Watch a video of the press conference on our facebook page
A NEW U.S.A. HEADQUARTERS
As part of our growth plan, in August 2017, we broke ground on a new state of the art corporate office in Novi, Michigan. We are consolidating all operations in our new corporate headquarters, including sales, marketing, service, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing. Our Edge Diagnostic Center, which monitors vehicle performance and uptime for all Hino trucks equipped with Edge, will also operate out of the Novi headquarters.
During the ground breaking ceremony, Yoshinori Noguchi, President & CEO of Hino Trucks said, “This ground breaking not only signifies Hino’s growth in the U.S., but also a new beginning for our operations in the U.S. within our new U.S. headquarters. In that spirit, we are excited to break ground on our new office and collectively work together as one Hino U.S. team.” Investment in the new state of the art corporate office, which consolidates all the operations, totals $20 million
