MANILA, Philippines (May 2017) – The next six years will see a surge in construction as the government focuses on cross-country infrastructure projects such as bridges, airports and farm-to-market roads. More real estate developers are likewise expected to ramp up construction projects as the Duterte administration pushes for a modified land reform program that imposes higher tax on idle lands.
As a partner in the golden age of construction, Hino Motors Philippines (HMP), the exclusive distributor of Hino trucks and buses in the Philippines, recently launched a new addition to its 700-truck series, the FS2P mixer truck, during the Infrastructure Congress and Expo Philippines (ICEP) held at the World Trade Center from May 3 to 5, 2017.
“The golden age of construction will see a high demand for commercial trucks to support activities such as compaction hauling and land cementation. HMP continues to rise to the challenge of meeting mobility requirements by innovating new trucks such as the FS2P mixer truck in response to the expected surge in infrastructure development,” said HMP Chairman Vicente T. Mills, Jr.
The FS2P mixer truck can be used for different construction and ground consolidation purposes, infrastructure building and road works such as railways, bridges and road construction.
Tuned to produce 350hp at 2,100rpm, the FS2P mixer runs on a HINO P11C engine paired with 9-speed transmission. With a 32,300kg capacity, the Euro 3-compliant mixer is equipped with power steering and a 266-liter full-tank capacity.
“Aside from innovating with new trucks, we will continue strengthening construction industry partnerships and participating in major construction industry exhibits such as the ICEP. Building on our strong sales momentum, we remain committed to innovating together and pursuing product and service excellence to help power infrastructure projects in the golden age of construction,” Mills said.
For more than 40 years, HMP has been serving as a one-stop shop catering to the truck and bus needs of both small to medium businesses and large companies alike. By offering quality trucks and buses, HMP ensures that its partners are able to leverage its product and service expertise in meeting their shipment and logistics needs.
