Forum a Hino 500 GT truck that will aid the
County Government in the distribution of food
to families affected by the floods and the less
fortunate members in our county.
Toyota Kenya has over the years and continues
to offer exceptional logistics solutions in
Kisumu County, and in turn contributing to the
economic progression of the County, through
our main branch here in the Kisumu CBD. Our
offering cuts across various models that fit into
the different demands of the customers plus
their tastes and preferences.
In line with the Governments four-pillar strategy
on manufacturing and the spirit of Buy Kenya
Build Kenya Toyota Kenya is manufacturing
Hino, Land Cruiser Pick Ups and 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
peoples lives through our products and by
transforming the world they live in through
creating real change.
