Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC; headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; President and CEO Hartmut Schick), announces that its dealer partner Taihei Kogyo Inc. (headquarters: Chiyoda-ku; President and CEO Yukinori Muto; hereafter referred to as Taihei Kogyo) has renovated its Tsuruoka branch and is ready to begin service at its new facility on Tuesday, February 12th.
Taihei Kogyo is a Mitsubishi Fuso dealer partner with 15 outlets in Niigata, Akita, and Yamagata prefectures, and is reopening its Tsuruoka branch in Yamagata prefecture.
The new repair and maintenance shop is now able to use a newly introduced 4 pillar lift and floor lift efficiently within each stall thanks to the stalls having greater depth than previously. As a result, a total of eight vehicles can be serviced at once in the six stalls available. Furthermore, by removing piping such as air hose reels and oil hose reels from the ceiling and installing them under the floor, the operating area of the overhead crane has expanded and working efficiency has improved. Introducing these new facilities and reviewing their arrangement have boosted productivity.
“At the renovated repair shop we can provide even better maintenance service now that we’ve introduced state-of-the-art equipment to enhance productivity. We have also installed the latest equipment in the office with the purpose of optimizing efficiency. As a result of this, improvements have been seen in the office working environment. The Tsuruoka branch will continue to provide services that are even more satisfying to our customers,” says President and CEO Yukinori Muto.
