UD Trucks launches new heavy-duty truck
Sep 05, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
UD Trucks Corporation, a part of the Volvo Group, has launched Quester, a new heavy-duty truck range developed specifically for growth markets.
"UD Trucks, with a proud and long-standing tradition of developing high quality trucks for the Japanese market, has exported trucks to markets across Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle-East for many decades. However, we have never developed products for customers outside Japan. With Quester, we are entering a new era by introducing an all-new truck range, specifically designed for growth markets", says Joachim Rosenberg, Executive vice president, Group Trucks Sales & Marketing and JVs, APAC.
Being an integral part of the Volvo Group, UD Trucks has developed Quester by leveraging the Volvo Group's global engineering network in combination with its tradition of Japanese craftmanship. To ensure best possible uptime, Quester is supported by an expanded and upgraded distribution network providing UD Genuine Service and UD Genuine Parts amongst others.
The production of Quester will start during the third quarter of 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. Besides serving the domestic Thai market, the plant in Thailand will also serve as an export hub for South East Asia and beyond. In the near future, the range will also be manufactured in China for the Chinese market and later on in India.
