In the automotive industry the manufacturer Hino Motors, Ltd., or merely Hino as they are referred to, was founded in May 1942. The Japanese manufacturer with its headquarters in Hino-shi, Tokyo is Asia’s leading manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty diesel trucks. Hino is one of the wholly owned subsidiaries of the Toyota motor Corporation. At the end of World War ll, Hino formally concentrated on the diesel engine markets, heavy-duty trailers and buses, moving away from the former production of large diesel engines used in marine applications.
Concentrating on customers during 1948, the manufacturers added the word “Diesel” officially naming the company Hino Diesel Industry Co., Ltd. The first heavy duty TH10 saw the light in 1950, equipped with a 7-liter DS10 diesel engine. As an eight-ton truck, it was considerably larger than existing trucks available in Asia. Hino did have a brief hand in the private car market from 1953, but ceased car production after joining the Toyota Group in 1967. Since the 1970’s Hino has expanded to Canada, with Hino Motors Canada Ltd. With its head office in Mississauga, Ontario, they are the exclusive Hino products distributor in Canada. In November 2007, the US started its own Hino manufacturing plant in West Virginia, called Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc.
