Hino Helps Young Techs with Second Truck Donation

The 2012 Hino 155 will help students understand new engine technology.

LONDON, ON.  — Clearly recognizing the need for well-trained technicians, Hino Motors Canada has donated a second truck to another local college.

Back in November, the company donated a 2012 Hino 195 to Mohawk College so that students would have a brand new engine to disect and learn from. This week, student's enrolled in Fanshawe College's Truck and Coach Apprenticeship and Motive Power Technician-Diesel also received a Hino truck — a 2012 Hino 155.

Rob Gorrie, chair of the Fanshawe's School of Transportation Technology, said the donation makes it possible for the college to provide the most up-to-date training in truck diagnostics and repair, helping students hone their skill before they begin a career.

It's encouraging, said Eric Smith, vice president of Sales with Hino, "to see that our future is bright with enthusiastic faculty, staff and students who recognize the value of strong technical training in this province.”
