The firm, Dongfeng Trucks, established in 1969, is one of the China’s leading truck brands, with the product range covering heavy and medium duty trucks.
Expressing delight over the historic breakthrough at the firm in Ore, the CEO of Klick Konnect, Chief Alex Ajipe, said that the plant would begin full assembly of trucks whenever the COVID-19 pandemic subsided.

“It has the first MDF factory in West Africa; a high-capacity textile mill and a paper mill, among others, all of which have employed the state indigenes in their thousands,” he said.
The manager said that orders and enquiries for the trucks could be made through: 08035070763.
