Hino Trucks Celebrates 30 Years

Founded in 1984 as a limited distributorship with responsibility for importing Class 4 through 7 cab-over trucks, Hino has evolved into a prominent U.S. company with a dealer network of more than 200 points, assembly and manufacturing facilities in Williamstown, W.Va., and Marion, Ark., with eight locations throughout the country.

Having garnered more than a dozen industry awards for customer satisfaction and Truck of the Year three times in the last six years alone, Hino Trucks continues to set record sales and post market share gains annually that make the 30-year-old company one of the country’s fastest-growing medium-duty truck brands.

“It is a great honor for me to celebrate this anniversary as the president of Hino Motors Sales U.S.A.,” said Yoshinori Noguchi, Hino Trucks president and CEO. “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. To all of our employees, dealers, customers and shareholders, we thank you for your continued commitment to Hino Trucks. Our 30th anniversary is a milestone and turning point for Hino to take the next step. I am excited about this journey and believe the best is yet to come.”
