Hino Resumes Production At WV Plant
WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Hino Motors Manufacturing USA is preparing to resume full production at its West Virginia plant following a cutback caused by a parts shortage.
Sandy Ring with Hino's home office in Michigan says the Williamstown plant has returned to a five-day work week with three days of production. Ring tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel (http://bit.ly/r9S9SL ) that production will increase to four days a week in October and then five days in November.
Hino cut the plant's production and work week after the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan created a parts shortage.
