IS MARION BACK IN PLAY FOR HINO TRUCK PLANT?
Marion, Arkansas could be in the hunt again for a major commercial truck plant.
A Hino Motors executive tells a Bloomberg reporter today that with a 39% rise in U.S. sales last fiscal year, his firm will add a new manufacturing facility for medium-duty trucks.
Chad Bamberg, marketing manager for Hino’s U.S. sales unit in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, said, “It will be in the U.S. Midwest or Southeast,” with the location and other details announced later this year.
