Established in March 1975, HINO MOTORS PHILIPPINES CORPORATION (HMP), formerly Pilipinas Hino, Inc., is a joint venture among Filipino investors, Hino Motors, Ltd. and Marubeni Corp. of Japan. Originally majority-owned by the local partner, HMP has been re-launched under the new majority ownership of Hino Motors, Ltd.
A participant in the Commercial Vehicle Development Program (CVDP), HMP is engaged in the assembly and distribution of quality HINO trucks, buses and spare parts.
HMP continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the Philippine transport industry. It has evolved into a company that responds to the specific and unique requirements of the commercial vehicle transport sector. From its first factory in Valenzuela, the company now has a state-of-the art facility in Canlubang Industrial Estate in Laguna where Hino truck, bus and utility vehicle units and bodies are manufactured.
Aside from manufacturing vehicles and bodies, HMP also distributes genuine Hino parts and accessories and provides long-term maintenance services to its clients. It is also the only company which offers customization thus becoming a “one-stop shop” – from assembling the vehicle to building the body based on the desired specification of the client and further to vehicle maintenance, repair and refurbishing. HMP has produced trucks and buses that cater to various industries, including logistics, healthcare (Mobile Clinics, X-Ray Vans and Hospital Buses) and government use, among others. Given the diverse needs of the transport market, HMP gives utmost importance to developing and maintaining a long-term relationship with its customers.
The company currently has 16 Dealers with several locations around Metro Manila, as well as in most key provincial cities. HMP is aiming to grow its network to 20 Dealers in the coming years. Now on its 40th year, HMP recognizes the challenge of increasing competition that comes with new trade policies on both local and global level.
Hino Motors Philippines Corporation is the first bus body manufacturer in the country to receive ISO 9001:2000 Certification, a distinction that serves as a proof of unmatched product quality. Its leadership in the industry can be attributed to the durability and cost-effectiveness of Hino products and this is reflected in its tag line “Global Brand, Lifetime Value.”
