INTRODUCTION TO THE HINO BRAND
Hino Motors Limited is a company that has a long and deep rooted history in diesel engined trucks and busses that dates back to 1910 when the company was first established as the Tokyo Gas Industry Co. Ltd. in Japan. The name ‘Hino’ is derived from the name of the city which gave birth to the production plant and factory, Hino city in Japan.
Since then they have grown and developed a range of global products for all types of different transport applications. It is therefore no surprise that Hino trucks continue to enjoy the biggest share of the domestic truck market in Japan and have done so for many decades already as they have become well known for their QDR (Quality, Durability & Reliability) attributes.
Hino continues to grow their global footprint and have a number of production facilities in many different countries such as Thailand, Australia, China, Pakistan, America and South Africa.
HINO – the global brand for all customers!
