DINA CAMIONES S.A. DE C.V.

DINA (Diesel Nacional, Sociedad Anónima de Capital Variable, in English National Diesel) is a Mexican automotive producer of heavy duty and specialty trucks, urban buses, armored military vehicles and intercity coaches. The company is owned by the Gómez Flores family.

Currently the company distributes its products in the UKUnited StatesRussiaIranEgyptSyria,  MexicoNicaragua (24.3 MUSD) and other Central and South America countries. For market acceptance in the United States and Canada the company sold the high profile Dina Viaggio coaches under its former subsidiary, Motor Coach Industries . Specific Dina bus models are re-badged as Mercedes-Benz buses in some markets.

DINA was founded as Diesel Nacional S.A in 1951 with the signing of an agreement with FIAT SPA to support the manufacture of trucks and buses.

History

From 1962 DINA commenced the assembly of foreign buses as well as the production of medium sized trucks using INTERNATIONAL and CUMMINS engines.

In 1987, a technological alliance was signed with NAVISTAR. Two years later DINA was acquired by the Consortium “G” Group DINA, though it continued to use NAVISTAR technology.

In 1990, DINA combined with the Paradiso bodyworks of Brazilian Marcopolo S.A.  company with whom it signed a commercial alliance.

The DINA Group was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and fully acquired the stocks of Motor Coach Industries (referred as a “company merger” in North America). Also, DINA founded the Financial Leasing DINA and started exporting to South America under the brand DIMEX .

In 1995, in order to achieve technological independence, DINA invested $70 million in its HTQ project to upgrade its manufacturing base. With consulting advice from BMW Design Works and Roush Industries, it developed a new modular concept for the class 6, 7 and 8 trucks, meeting international regulations and achieving the following objectives:

  • Ability to export to any market in the world.
  • Optimized product efficiency and performance.
  • Parts approval for OEM manufacturers.
  • Designed to outperform in diverse climates and terrains in Mexico.
  • Production simplification.
  • Optimize tooling cost.

In 1997, an Argentina division of auto parts DINA S.A. started and later an AIRDIN  plant in Bernal municipality of Buenos Aires Argentina, while in Mexico it launched a diverse line of buses: F11, F12 and F14 using its new HTQ technology.

In 1998 DINA finished its alliance with Navistar and launched a new line of vehicles HTQ exporting 48 million dollar to 14 countries and signed a contract with Western Star whose order cancellation was a prime factor for the following DINA economic crisis, ending with selling 61 percent of its MCI shares to Joseph Littlejohn & Levy . The same year, creates Mexicana de Manufacturas Especiales, SA of C.V. in the city of Guadalajara Jalisco five plants in an industrialcomplex of 48.480 m2. with the aim of supplying the market for its auto parts and bodyworks manufacturing.

Since 2001, DINA have completely used its HTQ manufacturing technology for all intercity coach buses.

In 2008, launches its products through its distributors network. Dina have also extended the use of its HTQ proprietary manufacturing technology for trucks and city buses to maintain its position in the urban bus market and in the medium term, and venturing into foreign bus segments, and dedicated work trucks.

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.
