His belief in making trucks with “ultimate dependability“ makes up our DNA, and has been inherited over generations to this very day. Our history is one of realizing his vision and core value.

Gemba is a Japanese word, which describes where the action takes place and the value is created, from the factory floor to the dealerships and customer sites. It’s the professional, passionate and dependable spirit of the UD people. It’s being close to the ground to identify the essentials, and the driving force that allows us to excel on them.
