recently launched the first local assembly of 1-ton single cab and double cab picks ups after
many years. These Hino trucks have been locally assembled since 2013,’’ said Jackson Obuo, Toyota Kenya, Kisumu Branch Manager.

Allow me to take a few minutes and give a brief background into Hino. Hino Kenya is the
commercial vehicle division of Toyota Kenya offering matching quality, durable and reliable
vehicles synonymous with the Toyota Group. Hino trucks and buses have quality engines for optimal power output and unmatched fuel efficiency. Offshore and local tests have proven that Hino has the best fuel efficiency compared to other market offerings.

In addition to this, Toyota Kenya places great importance on growing and impacting
positively on community, with an eye toward an even better society. We seek to continue
being a company that is a responsible citizen and one trusted by its customers. Toyota Kenya also undertakes to train from both the formal and informal sectors to enable them to open their businesses through our Toyota Kenya Academy. We have now partnered with various TVET institutions to provide a competency-based training and assessment program.

We also provide advanced driver training that assists with the basic maintenance of the various Toyota and Hino vehicles.

Toyota Kenya would like to thank Kisumu County Government for its continued support,
facilitation, and cooperation with the Toyota Kenya as we continue to reach out and improve people’s lives through our products and by transforming the world they live in through creating real change.
