The company has a good presence across the Middle-East, and has a particularly strong command of the light duty segment in the region.
The Hino 700 series has been put to use in various fields, primarily in the construction sector. The trucks can be modified to suit various applications, from a tanker to a dump truck and even a trailer. The machines feature a robust chassis and a slew of safety features such as airbags and disc brakes that ensure overall ride quality. It has long been one of the company's flagship model, well renowned in the haulage and construction industry across the world. Pontus Fredriksson, the managing director of GAC Bahrain was personally handed the keys of the two trucks in his office by executives of Hino.
Based in Tokyo, Japan, Hino is the dominant manufacturer of commercial vehicles in the Asian region. It evolved and emerged from Japanese companies present all the way back in 1910. The company's presence spawns all the way from Japan to even tougher markets such as the US, where it is acknowledged for its light duty models. The company has a decent presence here in India as well, with models such as 500 FL8J, a transporter truck, and 500 FM8J model for the mining field.
