MISSISSAUGA, ONT. – This year marks Hino Motors Canada’s 40th year in the country.

“From humble beginnings in 1974 to the prominent Canadian manufacturer of Class 4-7 trucks it is today, Hino is proud to celebrate its 40th year in Canada,” said Eric Smith, vice-president of sales. “Today the company is well entrenched within the Canadian marketplace with a coast-to-coast network of 47 dealers, a Canadian assembly plant in Woodstock, Ont. And its head office and park distribution centre located in Mississauga, Ont. The next 40 years for Hino promise to be very interesting and exciting.

Hino Motors Canada was first based in Burnaby, B.C. The company is planning to host a gala later this year to celebrate this milestone at their new Mississauga head office, parts distribution centre and national training centre.

In addition, this year marks the 30th year of Hino Trucks in the United States.
