- ‘Made in India’ FJ2528C mixer for the global markets
- Thailand to be the 11th export market for DICV
Oragadam, India: Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (DICV), a 100% wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, Stuttgart, Germany, along with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation, Japan (MFTBC), a Daimler Company announced the start of delivery of DICV-made Fuso mixers (FJ 2528C) to Thailand, one of the key strategic markets for the company in Asia. With this range of completely-built trucks with concrete mixer bodies, DICV steps into one of the most important sectors in Thailand – the concrete construction equipment segment.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Erich Nesselhauf, CEO and Managing Director, DICV said, “With the delivery of the first Fuso concrete mixer trucks to Thailand we underline that we are continuously expanding our export business. These new Fuso mixers are built-up to suit perfectly to the customers’ requirements in the important construction sector. The roll-out from our production line in Oragadam shows once more our flexibility in manufacturing trucks which are especially customized to industry requirement.”
New Fuso truck with concrete mixer application delivers maximum value for money
The new Fuso FJ2528C 6X4 with 280 HP engine output is the ideal base for the one-stop tailor made concrete mixer which has a drum capacity of 6 cbm or 7 cbm according to customer’s needs. Being ‘ready to use’ means the customer starts getting returns from the day of purchase and the quality is assured through stringent quality checks with Daimler standards. Providing many comfort features for the driver like air conditioned cabin, air suspended seats, power windows and central locking; these robust trucks are especially developed to meet the customer expectations in growth markets. The concrete mixer concept is expected to be a game changer in the construction equipment segment.
Exports from India
Under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, DICV and MFTBC (Mitsubishi Truck and Bus Corporation) have combined their strength to tap into further sales potential. While DICV focuses on the Indian market and countries such as Nepal, that are related to the Indian market conditions, MFTBC will service the rising demand in the Asian and African regions with its existing portfolio of Mitsubishi-Fuso trucks from its plant in Kawasaki and the robust Fuso trucks produced in Oragadam. With Thailand, DICV has now launched 11 export markets like Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal and Tanzania to name a few. There are further plans to roll-out in markets like the Middle East and Latin America within 2015. In Thailand, Mitsubishi Fuso trucks are distributed by Fuso Truck Thailand Co., Ltd.
