Manchin Participates In Hino Motors Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) delivered remarks at the HINO Motors Manufacturing plant grand opening in Mineral Wells and applauded the new $40 million investment and adding 250 more jobs to its facility.

“Twelve years ago as Governor, I was honored to lead the team that brought Hino to our state, and I am so proud of this company and its team members. I have witnessed firsthand the determination of the entire Hino group to ensuring quality, teamwork and an investment in our state. West Virginia is such a perfect location for business for many reasons, but most notably because of our people,” Senator Manchin said. 

“Since their launch in 2007, Hino continues to expand their workforce and their operations, proving that our workers can compete in a world economy and that West Virginia is a great place to do business. Today, this new manufacturing plant solidifies Hino’s vote of confidence in our state. It has truly been a pleasure to see Hino’s expansion in the West Virginia plant and we appreciate their continued trust in our people and our state. I know that by continuing to work together, we will write Hino Motors’ next exciting chapter in West Virginia.”

Hino Motors Manufacturing Facility in West Virginia started production in 2007 and initially had a workforce of a little over 100 employees. The company has expanded many times and invested hundreds of millions since, including in their new manufacturing facility in Mineral Wells and now employs more than 800 employees.
