    Engines the Harris assemblers went to China , but I hold a loyal clientele in the U.K. and know that Hino are now producing a Euro 6 Equivelent so now that we are Brexiting from the EEC I would like to try and get the Hinos back into the U.K. please can you help with the right people to put in touch with ?
