Fuso director departs company

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific, has announced the departure of a long time servant at Fuso.

Fuso Truck and Bus Australia Director Justin Whitford has left the company to pursue a business opportunity outside the industry it was revealed today.

According to Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific President and CEO, Daniel Whitehead Whitford's replacement will have a strong foundation to build on following the introduction of new models in the range such as the heavy-duty Shogun and the recently upgraded Canter.

“Fuso’s Canter is the only light-duty truck in Australia with Active Emergency Braking and the just-introduced Shogun heavy-duty truck is a class-leader with exceptional technology, comfort and performance,” he said in a statement.

“The excellent Fuso product range, backed by our stellar dealership network, presents an excellent opportunity for growth,” Whitehead said.

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific has already begun the process of identifying  Whitford's successor.

“I would like to thank Justin for his time at Daimler and wish him all the best for the future,” said Whitehead.
