Hino President Says No Decision Yet on Truck Assembly Plant at Marion

JANUARY 27, 2006 - Posted at 8:03 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The president of Hino Motors Manufacturing says any plans by the company to build a truck-assembly plant in Marion are still in the future.  And Hideichiro Chikahiro added yesterday that he couldn't say when the company might make a decision on whether and where to build such a plant.

Chikahiro was in Little Rock yesterday to speak at a meeting of the Mississippi Delta Grassroots Caucus, a group dedicated to the development of the state's impoverished Delta region.  His company is already building a parts plant at Marion, which will make truck axles and other components for the Toyota Tundra pickup truck.  He said the plant is expected to begin test production in April and May and full production in September.
