The contest also serves as a platform for us to engage with customers and demonstrate our appreciation for their loyalty to the Fuso brand. Since then, the contest has become more and more popular. When we started the contest in 2006, we received about 1,000 entries and this year we had more than 2,500 entries.
“Each year our dealers, staff and customers look forward to this contest. As the number of entries increases so too does the realisation to each Fuso truck owner that a good vehicle can be ‘driving your business’ to greater heights. Congratulations to all the winners of the Diamond Fuso contest and we thank everyone for their participation.
