Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC; headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; President and CEO Hartmut Schick), in line with its Vision to lead the commercial vehicle industry into the future, announces the inauguration of a nationwide retail training network made up of five training centers. Up from the original two training centers in Kitsuregawa and Osaka, two new training centers in Shimonoseki and Sendai were opened in 2018, with the fifth opening in January 2019 at the Kawasaki Plant.
FUSO Academy’s retail training network increases the number of training courses that will be offered in total to MFTBC retail employees to 80 from 120. The newly opened training facilities include classrooms with modern IT systems, as well as workshops for hands-on training. The strategic locations of the training centers will reduce the travel time needed for retail staff across Japan to take mandatory training and skills development courses. The new retail training network thus improves the work-life balance of Fuso’s retail workforce and frees up their time to meet customer needs.
