Hino Motors Manufacturing USA, Inc., today celebrated the official Grand Opening of its commercial truck assembly facility in Williamstown, West Virginia – its first wholly owned truck assembly plant in the United States.
Approximately 300 guests attended the event, which included an assembly-line tour and display of several Hino trucks equipped for different customer uses.
"Hino Motors Manufacturing has established an important presence in
Wood County and the Mid-Ohio Valley, and we're glad to have been a partner
in that growth," said Governor Joe Manchin. "We've watched Hino's rapid growth with pleasure and look forward to a long and mutually rewarding working partnership."
HMM-West Virginia assembles Class 4 to 7 commercial trucks. Customers
use Hino Trucks for such purposes as residential/commercial moving, armored
car service, beverage distribution, and wrecker service.
The plant started production in November 2007, and today employs about 105 full-time team members. HMM has invested over $18 million in the West Virginia facility, in the plant and equipment, to date.
