Daimler Commercial Vehicle (Thailand) Ltd. (DCVT), wholly owned by Germany's Daimler Group, the world leader in bus and truck sales, is further strengthening its commitment to Thailand, with an expansion of its Fuso brand commercial vehicles operations as well as launching Fuso brand businesses, including Fuso Leasing, to fully support Thai customers' needs . This ever growing presence in the Thai market is marked by the appointment of Mr. Sascha Ricanek as CEO of DCVT.

DCVT, which is an integral part of Daimler Asia and its regional Southeast Asia network, has full access to all of Daimler's vast services. At the same time DCVT's ever developing Thai operations are setting deep roots, with local content, local assembly, local warehousing and local dedicated training for its nationwide dealer network staff.

Fuso, the Daimler commercial vehicle brand in Thailand, will include not only truck sales, but also Fuso Leasing, offering finance and leasing services with local market flexibility; Fuso Protection, providing insurance geared to this sector; and Fuso Oil. The Fuso brands and services, set up specifically for the Thai market, will bring a level of customer dedication previously unseen in Thailand.

Mr. Ricanek, as the newly appointed and first CEO of DCVT, comes to the position with over 15 years' experience with Daimler in Asia and Europe, including 10 years in commercial vehicles.

"Fuso, with many years here, has developed a real understanding of the Thai market. As the company expands our dealer network ever further nationwide, offering our customers total all round solutions, addressing each of their needs whether it be leasing support, insurance or maintenance at every one of our dealerships. Our vehicles are available to be ordered now and our dealers are ready," said Mr. Ricanek said

"We want Fuso customers to truly know our brand, our products, and to have the confidence that they will be well looked after with excellent aftersales service. Moving forward we will continually demonstrate our total and long-term commitment to Thailand, and to all those who purchase Fuso trucks," he added.

Southeast Asia remains one of the world's fastest growing commercial vehicle markets. DCVT is looking to capitalise on this significant demand and further build its leadership position with the full support of Daimler and Daimler Trucks. Fuso in Thailand is now able to incorporate all services, knowledge and pioneering technologies into a one stop service for the Thai market with the establishment of DCVT. In addition, with the establishment of Fuso Leasing to support Fuso customers, there will be greater purchase flexibility and an enhanced customer experience. Mercedes-Benz Leasing (Thailand) Managing Director, Mr. Supavut Jiramanusnakom, will oversee Fuso Leasing which is the financial service provider for the Daimler Group's products in Thailand.

At the 2nd Thailand International Truck Show DCVT is showcasing its products and services from Thursday, 8 June 2017 to Saturday, 10 June 2017 at Impact, Muang Thong Thani.
