Hino Indonesia Marks 500,000 Unit Production Achievement
Mar 11, 2020
On March 6th, PT. Hino Motors Manufacturing Indonesia (HMMI) (Headquarters: Purwakarta, West Java; President Director: Masahiro Aso), the Indonesian manufacturing subsidiary of Hino Motors, Ltd. (Hino) (Headquarters: Hino-shi, Tokyo; President & CEO: Yoshio Shimo), announced its achievement of producing a total of 500,000 Hino vehicles at a commercial vehicle expo held in Jakarta. Ever since starting manufacture in 1985, HMMI has grown alongside Indonesian businesses, supporting customer operations and developments. In addition to meeting domestic needs, it has also engaged in vehicle and component export activities in and around the ASEAN region since 2011.
In a ceremony during the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Commercial Vehicle Expo (GIICOMVEC) 2020, HMMI President Director Masahiro Aso celebrated Hino's presence in Indonesia for the past 37 years since the company's establishment in December 1982. He voiced his deep appreciation, saying the 500,000 unit achievement was only possible with all the support and guidance from the "Government Institution, suppliers, predecessors, seniors, and employees." He also stated that the achievement is clear proof of how Hino's existence is accepted by the Indonesian market because of its high quality products and customer service, and that he hoped the company would continue to grow alongside and contribute to Indonesian customers and society.
Indonesia is the biggest sales market for Hino after Japan. In 2009, HMMI started producing light-duty trucks in addition to medium-duty trucks. In 2011, it began exporting truck and bus vehicles to the ASEAN region and has since expanded its export network to other countries with a total of 15 destination countries. Roughly 13,000 vehicles have been exported in the last 10 years. HMMI also carried out vehicle component export to 17 destination countries. In the future, export volume and value will continue to be increased.
The Hino Group as a whole is implementing initiatives for achieving a sustainable society that is prosperous and comfortable. We strive to help both customers and societies find solutions in our overseas markets as well, upholding the three major aims of delivering "best-fit products incorporating safety and environmental technologies," providing "Total Support customized for each vehicle," and "pursuing challenges in new areas." Since Indonesia is both one of the regional core production bases for Hino's business in Asia and Hino's largest overseas market, HMMI will continue to grow and deepen its Total Support to aid customer businesses. This is a key part of overcoming "Challenge 2025," Hino's mid-term corporate strategy.
The Hino Group will keep challenging itself to become a business partner that all of our customers can depend on.
