DENSO Commercial And Heavy Duty Establishes Relationship With Hino Trucks

Friday, May 20, 2016

DENSO Corporation (DENSO) entered into an agreement with Hino Motors Sales U.S.A., Inc. (Hino Trucks) to supply various makes and models diesel aftertreatment products including DPFs as well as components to their dealer organization. The DPF and components offered by DENSO are a result of a strategic partnership established with Dinex, a global leader in this segment. The agreement represents the trust and confidence Hino Trucks has in DENSO as a supplier of quality and durable products that exceed expectation. The DENSO program will be offered to all Hino dealerships across the country.

This new All-Makes parts program allows Hino dealers the ability to meet their customers’ aftertreatment product needs leveraging “one-stop-shopping.” DENSO and Dinex will supply DPFs, bellows, clamps, gaskets, mufflers and many other necessary components for various Makes & Models, all produced and shipped from the Dinex manufacturing facility in Georgia.

“DENSO and Hino brands are a terrific, strategic fit. We are excited for the new opportunities we both have in this growing market. Diesel aftertreatment is projected to be the second largest aftermarket segment by 2020. The growth is driven by new emission regulations,” explained Frank Jenkins, Senior Manager of DENSO’s Heavy Duty Group. “Dinex is valued for their great reputation in the segment and their ability to deliver OE quality products,” he added.

“We are excited to release Dinex emission system parts to the Hino Trucks Dealers as a new All-Makes & Models parts offering. We understand the wide range of customers our dealers support; this program provides many money saving options for end customers and dealers alike,” said Chris Russell, Manager, Parts Product Development and Aftermarket Sales at Hino Trucks.
