Hino Trucks Partners With Morgan Corporation

NOVI, Mich., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hino Trucks has partnered with Morgan Corporation on a quick delivery, dry freight van body program for its conventional trucks. This partnership will give Hino dealers across the country access to faster turnaround times on 24'-26' dry freight van bodies and provides customers shorter lead times.

Available in October, this Quick Turn stock program will serve 46 states (excluding, Hawaii, Alaska, California and Nevada) and trucks will be stocked through Morgan's regional manufacturing operations - Morgantown PA., Rydal GA., Corsicana TX., and Lakeland FL. Despite regional stocking, customers will receive the benefit of consistent, national pricing across the country that maintains the same price on the program bodies through all Hino dealers.

"Morgan's nationwide presence offers our customers unmatched service and support. Morgan has been a first-rate supplier to Hino Trucks over the last number of years, and prides itself on industry-leading innovation, quality and delivery. We look forward to expanding our body program offerings with Morgan while maintaining the high level of quality and satisfaction that Hino customers have come to expect," said Glenn Ellis, Vice President of Marketing for Hino Trucks.

"This new program is designed to have a 21-day turnaround from chassis or order receipt on stocked trucks," said Chris Johnson, National Account Manager for Morgan Corporation. He added, "In today's increasing economic climate, Morgan is committed to helping Hino customers cut their wait time, provide competitive pricing and ensure the best product on the road."
