  19. The word “trust” came up in a conversation the other day. The person I was talking to said everything in life is held together with trust. While I agree, I would also add “love.” What comes to your mind when you think of trust? For me, it would mean that I have faith and confidence that someone is dependable and I firmly believe they are reliable. Trust, I believe, is the cornerstone in any relationship. My daughter took my 16-month-old granddaughter up the giant slide at the state fair this summer. My daughter put my granddaughter down while she put the burlap bag on the slide. She then sat down on the bag and I could see my granddaughter watching her and probably thinking, “What you doing momma?” Then my daughter held out her arms to my granddaughter, my granddaughter trustingly put her arms out and sat on my daughter’s lap, and down they went. I was a little concerned. I thought my granddaughter would be afraid, and was probably crying as she went down. But to my amazement, at the end of the ride, she got up with a big smile and said, “more, more.” To me, that was a sure sign of trust. Think about the many people and things you put your trust in every day. For example, you trust the towing equipment you use is reliable, and will do whatever job you’re on. Trust is knowing things will get done, and when trust is broken or challenged it’s hard to get it back. Start with trusting in yourself — have faith in your abilities, be dependable and reliable, be the person where there is no doubt that someone can depend on you no matter what.

  25. On August 21, 2019, Hino Motors, Ltd. executives and dignitaries held a grand opening ceremony for the company’s new plant in Mineral Wells, West Virginia. Guests present included state governor Jim Justice, West Virginia senators Joseph Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia congressman David McKinley, representatives from dealerships and suppliers, as well as Hino CEO Yoshio Shimo, US Hino Sales president Shigehiro Matsuoka and US Hino Manufacturing president Takashi Ono. The Hino group has been working to bolster its business structure to provide ongoing value to customers under its “Challenge2025” initiative. The company has continued to expand its product line-up in the US and moved forward with production localization. As part of these efforts, Hino has relocated and consolidated their existing production processes at the new West Virginia plant to achieve greater efficiency. The company plans to transfer the production of truck cabs for the North American market — currently being done in Japan — to this plant. They have also shortened product delivery lead times, established organizational setups with a view of increasing sales and are taking actions to further improve competitiveness. The plant began operations in June. Hino CEO Yoshio Shimo announced, “Hino is committed to building its trucks and products in the market it operates in. We have committed 100 million dollars in our US operations —which includes the construction of our new West Virginia plant — and create 250 jobs. I am excited to announce an additional commitment of 40 million dollars in investment to meet increased demand and product configurations and 250 additional jobs, as part of our effort to enhance the foundations that will underlie our further growth in the US. Hino remains committed to taking active actions that will enable us to contribute to the growth of the US and the state of West Virginia.” “Hino has been a tremendous partner to the state of West Virginia since 2007,” said West Virginia governor Jim Justice. “With this additional investment and hiring, they continue to be one of the West Virginia’s biggest employers. We thank Hino for their continued investment in the great state of West Virginia.” View the full article and more on TowTimes.com
