Japanese truck maker Hino Motors Manufacturing has marked the opening of its new West Virginia assembly plant at Mineral Wells. Company President Takashi Ono has said the $100 million investment could create up to 250 new jobs. For 12 years Hino Motors had assembled medium-duty trucks at a smaller facility 20 miles away in the Wood County community of Williamstown.

Hino Motors is owned by the Toyota Group and its American headquarters are in Novi, Michigan.
