The truck will be housed at the Center for Applied Transportation Technologies and be used by students in the truck and coach technician programs. During a separate event on Wednesday, Hino also donated a service diagnostic tool (DSTI) and access to online workshop manuals.

“Fanshawe has had a strong relationship with Hino since they began operations at their Woodstock facility,” said Catherine Finlayson, executive director of the Fanshawe College Foundation. “Hino’s support has helped establish the college as a premier post-secondary destination for students seeking a career in the technology sector.”
