Hino to Close Marion Plant for Three Months

MARION, AR (KAIT) - The Hino manufacturing plant in Marion will temporarily shutdown for approximately three months beginning next month, in response to the Toyota Motor Corporation's announcement last week that it will temporarily cease production on the Tundra pick-up.

Hino manufactures axles for the Tundra, as well as the Toyota Sequoia sport utility vehicle.  Recent sales for both large, fuel-inefficient vehicles have been slow.

Hino's temporary shutdown is slated to begin on August 8, the same date that Toyota will cease production on the Tundra.
