"Cars at Work" Exhibit

On Sunday, February 21, 2016, Taiyo Oil took part in the “Cars at Work” Exhibition held in Matsuyama, Ehime prefecture.
This event was timed to take place together with the 25th Ehime Imported Vehicle Show. Among a wide range of types of vehicles exhibited, from mobile cranes and crash simulators to fire engines, we unveiled Lift Askul's latest, new-style tank truck that can raise or lower the rear axle of the trailer while in operation depending on the weight of the load, and offered visitors a turn in the driver’s seat.
Taiyo Oil proactively exhibits at events of this type in order to interact with local communities and promote understanding of oil for energy.
