Hino ushered in a new era of manufacturing capability during a grand opening ceremony that was attended by Gov. James Justice, SenatorJoe Manchin and Senator Shelley Capito, Congressman David McKinley, local government officials, dealers, customers, suppliers and media. The attendees took part in a tour of Hino's nearly 1,000,000 sq. ft. facility in Mineral Wells, W.V., a tree planting tradition and a Kagami-Wari ceremony to consummate Hino's growth commitment to the United States.

Hino Motors Ltd. President and CEO Yoshio Shimo attended the event and said, "Hino is committed to building its trucks and products in the market it operates in. We have committed $100 million in capital investment into our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, generating 250 new jobs. Today, I am excited to announce an additional commitment of $40 million in investment to meet increased demand and product configurations, creating an additional 250 new jobs, totaling 800 team members."

"Hino has been a tremendous partner to the state of West Virginia since 2007," said Justice. "With 800 West Virginians planned to be employed by Hino, they continue to be one of West Virginia's biggest employers. We thank Hino for their continued investment in the great state of West Virginia."

Hino's first truck rolled off the assembly line at the new plant in June where it will continue to assemble all class 6, 7 and 8 conventional trucks, including its newly released class 7 and 8 XL Series. The new facility can produce 15,000 trucks a year on one shift, providing Hino the capacity it needs to continue to grow in the United States. Hino continues to be the fastest growing commercial truck brand in the United States in its competitive class, according to the manufacturer.
