New Trucks Added to WV State Fleet

August 24, 2009

CHARLESTON, WV - West Virginia's state transportation department fleet will add 40 heavy-duty Hino Motors trucks to its fleet, according to the Charleston Gazette.

Hino Motors was the first truck-assembly facility in West Virginia. Hino acquired the former Walker Systems facility in Williamstown in 2007. The Japanese company has since invested $15 million at the plant. The 194,000-square-foot facility produces about 2,500 trucks a year, according to the Gazette.

Matheny Motors, a Wood County truck and auto dealership, will deliver the single-axle dump trucks to the transportation department.  

Hino and Matheny won the contract through competitive bidding, reported the Gazette.
